When this season's Premier League fixture list was released Cheap Nolan Patrick Jersey , Arsenal against Manchester City in April looked like a potential title decider.

In reality, neither team go into Sunday's game with a -realistic hope of catching -leaders Chelsea, but instead are focusing on keeping their own faltering seasons on track.

For either side, failure to qualify for the Champions League would be unacceptable Cheap Valtteri Filppula Jersey , but for third-placed City and the sixth-placed Gunners, this is a genuine possibility.

In April, the pair will meet in the FA Cup semifinal but right now Sunday's Premier League clash is far more significant.

Victory for Arsene Wenger's -Arsenal would end a Premier League win drought of nearly two months, and be their first over one of the "Big Six" since they beat Chelsea 3-0 in September Cheap Andrew MacDonald Jersey , a result which saw the west London side's coach Antonio Conte change tactics and kick-start a charge toward the title.

That must seem a lifetime ago to Wenger, who knows another substandard showing on Sunday will increase the fans' desire to see the Frenchman leave when his deal expires after the season.

Having had a two-week international break to fix things after a 3-1 loss at West Bromwich Albion last time out, Wenger desperately needs one of his big names to step up against City.

Midfielder Mesut Ozil's return to fitness, having played for -Germany after missing four of Arsenal's last nine league games Cheap Steve Mason Jersey , is encouraging, but a perceived lack of physicality in recent games, with players easily outmuscled, must worry Wenger.

Playmaker Santi Cazorla's absence has been felt while Alexis Sanchez's absence on international duty with Chile seems to have done little to calm his dissatisfaction.

Sanchez reportedly had an angry exchange with national team goalkeeper and captain Claudio Bravo - who is likely to be on the bench rather than the pitch for City on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's team are frustratingly inconsistent Cheap Chris Conner Jersey , sweeping aside inferior opposition before being shown up by a quality side like AS Monaco in the Champions League.

Despite a decent 1-1 draw with Liverpool before the international break, City were not at their free-flowing best and got a 35,000 pound ($43,946) FA fine for failing to control their players when disputing refereeing decisions.

Striker Sergio Aguero may be biding his time with a -possible summer move on the cards while winger Raheem Sterling Cheap Michal Neuvirth Jersey , who impressed on England duty before picking up a back injury, continues to exasperate with his fitful displays.

Guardiola seems to know how to handle him but having paid -Liverpool 49 million pounds ($60.88 million) for the 22-year-old, City have a right to expect more consistency from Sterling.

Their best tactic could be to try and rattle Arsenal with an early blow and hope the reaction of the Gunners' famously dissatisfied fans will further unsettle their side.

For all the media talk that Wenger wants to stay, he knows he must produce something positive this season.

Sunday is a chance to take a step in the right direction.
Nearly all of us have goals of some sort or another - losing weight Cheap Boyd Gordon Jersey , making more friends, earning more money, earning a promotion. Such goals are especially prevalent around the first of the year. But how many of our goals do we actually accomplish? Most people think about goals only in terms of the end result and don't really formulate a clear plan to achieve them. That's the No. 1 reason most goals are never achieved.

I know people who are content to just dream about "what if?" If you're like me, dreaming about a goal is not enough. One of the things coaches do is help people clarify their goals and stay focused on achieving them. Some people know what they want to do and some don't. For those who do know what they want Cheap Matt Read Jersey , their biggest obstacle is figuring out how to get it.

So how are goals accomplished? One popular study suggests writing goals down is a critically important step toward achieving them. You are much more likely to achieve your goal if you do more than just keep it in your head. Start with moving your goal from your mind to something in front of your eyes by writing it down.

Another popular and effective method is the SMART method. That means re-writing your goals in terms that are:


Choose one goal at a time. There are only so many hours in a day, after all. Rather than dividing your time between two or three goals simultaneously, focus your energy on one goal and you'll generally achieve it much faster. Also, if you have a big goal Cheap Dale Weise Jersey , it might make sense to break it up into smaller goals first. For example, if your goal is to get a Master's degree in Computer Science and you have a BA in English, a smaller goal would be to find out what additional coursework you need before you can apply to the MS program.

How will you know when you've achieved this goal? Better still, what are the signs that you are making progress toward your goal? Outline specific steps to achieving your goal Cheap Scott Laughton Jersey , and mark off progress along the way. Seeing your goal get closer and closer can be powerfully motivating!

Why set yourself up for failure by choosing a goal you can't reach? Don't set a goal of winning the gold medal in the next Olympic swim competition if you're 50 and can't swim. A better goal would be to learn to swim x yards in y minutes.

Pick a goal that's do-able within the time frame you've alloted. Again, dreaming is dreaming. Goal setting is goal setting. Setting a goal to be the first person to walk on Mars is currently not realistic. Running a marathon three weeks from today is probably just as unrealistic.
