Premier League champions Manchester City face leaders Arsenal in a potentially crucial match on Sunday afternoon. 

The Citizens currently sit third in the top flight table, a single point behind the Gunners and second-placed Liverpool.

Sunday’s match at The Etihad could go a long way towards deciding who wins the title this term, with Arsenal desperate to do so after leading for much of last season, before ultimately finishing as runners-up.

In the meantime, it has emerged that City boss Pep Guardiola is set to depart the club.

As reported by Football Insider, the Spaniard will leave Man City when his contract expires at the end of next season.

Guardiola, 53, joined the Manchester club in 2016, shortly after a successful spell with German giants Bayern Munich.

The Spaniard failed to win a trophy during his first season in England, the first time he had done so in his managerial career, but he has since lifted no fewer than 16 trophies including five Premier League titles and the Champions League.

Guardiola is one of the most successful managers in football history

Last season, he oversaw a remarkable treble as his side lifted the league title, Champions League and FA Cup.

In 2023, Guardiola signed a two-year contract extension that will expire in the summer of 2025, and the report claims that he will depart City upon its expiry.

It is claimed that Guardiola could took a break from football after departing The Etihad, similar to the year-long hiatus he took when he left Barcelona in 2012.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who has been Guardiola’s biggest rival during his time in England, it set to depart Anfield at the end of the current season, signalling the end of this iteration of the rivalry.
