With City already 2 points ahead of Arsenal, a win would be enough to hand them the title, a draw would also do the job if Arsenal draw or lose to Everton. Should City drop two or three points today, a win for Arsenal would mean the Gunners are champions for the first time in 20 years, since they have a better goal difference than the Cityzens.

However, there is a concern for Arsenal as their star boy Bukayo Saka is reported a doubt for today’s game. In a prematch press conference, BBC Sports confirmed that Mikel Arteta revealed the players condition, but added that further assessments would be done to finally decide his involvement.

Recall that Saka was at the receiving end of a heavy challenge from Amrabat that saw him clatter into the advertisement board at Old Trafford.

Can Arsenal cope without Saka?

If Saka happens to miss the game, can the Gunners go through today’s huddle without their talisman? Yes they can, but I reckon it won’t be easy. The 22-year-old has been one of the most consistent players for Mikel Arteta’s red army and would certainly be missed.

In the Premier League alone, Saka has 16 goals and 9 assist after 35 games and would be looking to add to that should he overcome the setback and feature in today’s game.

Who can stand in for Saka if need be?

I can think of one person and that is Gabriel Jesus. The Brazilian has not started a lot of games this season, having lost his place to new arrival Kai Harvertz, but would certainly give his all should he be called upon to do that. As a versatile player, Jesus can play in any position in the front three and would certainly do fine.Final day scare: Saka a doubt, but the Gunners should be fine with or without him CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
