Hello and welcome to the #RioChallenge Live Blog brought to you by Strongbow, where Manchester City will be looking to continue their recent strong form with another win against Arsenal.
Having dispatched Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford recently, Manuel Pellegrini’s side will fancy their chances against an Arsenal outfit struggling to find consistency. The Gunners drew 2-2 with Swansea in mid-week, after a Mathieu Flamini own goal, but have looked vulnerable in recent matches.
The last time these two sides met was back in December, when Arsenal were humbled 6-3 by City. The stats show that Arsenal have won just three of their last nine Premier League games, while Man City have converted the highest percentage of shots into goals of any team in the Premier League (20%).
Aside from the action, you can get yourself in with a chance of winning a trip to Rio de Janeiro to play one of Brazil’s best female five-a-side teams, all you have to do is sign you and your mates up here: bit.ly/riochallenge
