Preview

Arsenal host Manchester City at Emirates in last Premier League match before Christmas

Monday 21 December 2015 | Emirates Stadium | Kick-off 20:00

City expect to welcome back Sergio Aguero after the forward returned to training from a heel problem. Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez suffered a hamstring injury during last month's 1-1 draw at Norwich City and is less likely to play, although he has resumed training.

Arsene Wenger's team are a point better off than City, with both teams behind surprise leaders Leicester City.

"It is a massive game [on Monday]. When we play at home you want to win because we are ambitious and we feel we have the chance to come out in a strong position after Christmas." - Manuel Pellegrini
