A recent run of poor form for the Gunners has seen their title rivals quickly pip them to top spot and Mikel Arteta will need to win all remaining fixtures if he hopes to lift any silverware this year.

To make matters worse, the Gunners last Premier League outing was a 4-1 defeat in Manchester to the Sky Blues where Erling Haaland broke the record for most Premier League goals in a season.
