THE BIGGER PICTURE: The second-half turnaround could prove devastating for Arsenal if they fail to find the winning goal. A draw would be their second in a row in the Premier League and will leave them four points ahead of Manchester City in the table, with Pep Guardiola's men holding a game in hand.
WHAT NEXT FOR ARSENAL? The Gunners are in action again on Friday as they host Southampton in the Premier League.
