ARSENAL are hitting form in the league at just the right time – despite their Europa League disaster against Olympiacos.
Mikel Arteta's side have won their last two Premier League games, ending a run of four-straight draws which saw the Gunners fall off the top-four pace.
But with Man City now banned from the Champions League for two years, the race is on for fifth – and Arsenal are still in the hunt.
Why were Arsenal not playing last weekend?
THE Premier League has emerged from the other side of it's first ever winter break.
Over the course of two weeks earlier this month, teams were given a weekend off to allow them a fortnight to rest and recuperate between matches.
Things are back to normal now – but Arsenal did not have a game at the weekend.
They had been scheduled to face champions Man City in a Premier League clash at the Etihad on Sunday.
But Pep Guardiola's side reached the final of the Carabao Cup and beat Aston Villa 2-1 to lift the trophy.
Arsenal therefore have the weekend off, with the re-arranged fixture yet to have a concrete date.
Yet, the Gunners still have something to celebrate after their unbeaten record stayed in tact as Liverpool lost to Watford along with their chance to become invincibles.
When is Man City vs Arsenal rescheduled for?
The rearranged Man City vs Arsenal match will take place next Wednesday (March 11) at 7.30pm.
It will be shown live on Sky Sports.
The rescheduled date had caused fury among Gunners fans as there were no trains back from the Etihad at that time and the match had been announced at just eight days notice.
However, the club has alleviated some concerns by providing free coach travel.
A much later date had been mooted for this fixture, but Arsenal's shock Europa League defeat has freed up an extra week.
