Man City will host Arsenal in the match 29 of the EPL

The big duel in the 2023/2024 Premier League title race will take place on Sunday(31st March). Manchester City will host league leaders Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium this meeting will also be a duel between two young English national team stars, namely Phil Foden and Bukayo Saka. Both of them are increasingly establishing themselves as centre on the front lines of each team. Foden certainly has the ambition to bring his team to victory to overtake Arsenal, who in the current standings table are still one point ahead of Manchester City. On the other hand, Saka is also motivated to visit the City's home at Etihad Stadium. The 22-year-old winger Saka wants to bring the Gunners to get full points to further make Arsenal sit firmly at the top of the standings.

Foden and Saka both picked up the big, Citizens versus the Gunners duel with brilliant statistics in the EPL this season. The Citizens can be said to be very lucky to have a figure like Phil Foden and the reason is, that the 23-year-old player can be played in various positions on the front line. Foden can play on both wings equally well. Not only that, coach Pep Guardiola also played Foden as a false nine several times.

Foden has also shown extraordinary performance this season. In the Premier League, Foden is recorded as having played 28 times, meaning he has never been absent. In fact, in 26 of these matches, he was trusted to play as a starter from this number of appearances, Foden was recorded as successfully creating 11 goals and 7 assists for Man City. If calculated in all competitions, Foden's goal collection has reached 17 goals and 10 assists this season.

Bukayo Saka also showed flashy statistics. The 22-year-old player has appeared 27 times in the Premier League this season, all as a starter. Saka can also be considered 'carrying' Arsenal by creating 13 goals and eight assists in the EPL this season. Not to mention his contribution to the Champions League in the form of three goals and four assists. Slightly different from Foden, Saka is only played by Mikel Arteta as a left-wing striker. However, Saka is considered phenomenal in that position. So, who will emerge as the winner in the big match later? Is Foden with Man City, or is Saka with the Arsenal team? We look forward to it together.
