Arsenal has been handed a significant advantage ahead of their crucial clash against Manchester City as the news of Manuel Akanji’s potential absence looms over the Etihad Stadium. The Gunners, currently topping the Premier League table with an impressive total of 64 points after 28 games in the 2023/24 campaign, are gearing up to face off against the reigning champions in what promises to be a pivotal match on Sunday, 31st March, 2024.

City’s defender, Manuel Akanji, is facing uncertainty over his availability for the upcoming showdown after sustaining an injury that has ruled him out of Switzerland’s friendly with Ireland. The confirmation of his absence from manager Murat Yakin comes as a blow to Pep Guardiola’s side, providing Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal with a welcomed boost as they prepare to extend their lead in the title race.

The Gunners are coming off a thrilling UEFA Champions League encounter against FC Porto, where they triumphed in a nerve-wracking penalty shootout at the Emirates Stadium to secure their spot in the next round. With their momentum riding high and the team firing on all cylinders, the absence of Akanji could prove pivotal in their quest for victory at the Etihad.

As the anticipation builds for this highly anticipated clash, Arsenal fans will be hoping that their team can capitalize on this opportunity to further solidify their position at the top of the table and edge closer to securing the Premier League title. Manchester City, on the other hand, will need to regroup and adjust their defensive strategies in the absence of Akanji to contain Arsenal’s attacking threats effectively.
