City eager to end Arsenal hoodoo

Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry says it is time his side ended their long winless streak against Arsenal on Sunday.

The last time City managed a league win away to Arsenal was in 1975 when Tony Book’s side won a 3-2 thriller at Highbury.

Barry believes that City now have the firepower to end a run which has seen them unable to score a single goal in their last six visits to Arsene Wenger’s team.

“I wasn’t aware it had been so long. Football is like that sometimes but 37 years is extraordinary and records like that are rare but there to be broken,” Barry told the club’s website.

“We have to go to the Emirates (Stadium), play as well as we know we are capable of and see if we can put an end to our poor run of league results on their ground.”

The former Aston Villa man said the game will be no walk over, having been part of a City squad that struggled to a 1-1 draw at home to Arsenal earlier in the campaign.

“They played some great football and they surprised me just how good they were that day and though we drew 1-1,” Barry said.

“They will be disappointed they’ve not played as well as that more often this season.”
