Arsenal face the daunting task of travelling to Manchester City when the Premier League finally returns on Wednesday.

Mikel Arteta’s side, who are languishing in ninth heading into the resumption, face an uphill battle to secure a Europa League spot. However, they had recaptured form prior to the outbreak, winning four of their last five league games, albeit punctuated by a gutting Europa League defeat by Olympiacos.

For his former mentor Pep Guardiola, there is little at stake domestically with champions-elect Liverpool 25 points clear at the top of the table.
