Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini believes that his side needs to take points off Premier League leaders Arsenal this weekend.

Manuel Pellegrini has said that Manchester City must take points off Arsenal when they meet in the Premier League this weekend.

City sit fourth in the table ahead of the league leaders' visit to the Etihad Stadium tomorrow lunchtime.

The manager told the club's website: "This is our opportunity to take three important points against the best team in the Premier League at the moment. For Arsenal and for our team, this is a very important game.

"They play one day after we did in the Champions League. Maybe our match was not exactly the same but I don't think that will be an advantage or those things will decide the game. I think the way both teams will play will be more important.

"If we win the match on Saturday, all the other teams will be nearer the top of the table so at least six or seven teams will continue fighting for the title."

Both teams head into the match having taken four wins in their last six games in the top flight.
