Matchday: Team News – Player Ratings – Match Highlights
Match: Manchester City v Arsenal
Stadium: Etihad Stadium
Kick-Off (GMT): Sat 4 Nov 14:15
It’s going to be a tough one today. Manchester City have looked unstoppable at times but the Gunners actually have a pretty decent record against the Citizens in recent years.
Here’s how we think Arsenal will line up:
GK) Petr Cech
- Arsenal and Liverpool both want a surprising Premier League midfielder
- [Team news] Arsenal v Rapid Vienna line up – Arteta to rotate as fans return
- Two signings set in January as Arsenal give Arteta ‘vote of confidence’
RCB) Laurent Koscielny
There’s very little reason for Arsene Wenger to change his starting lineup meaning Laurent Koscielny will start.
CB) Per Mertesacker
LCB) Nacho Monreal
Nacho Monreal will start.
RWB) Hector Bellerin
The Spaniard will start against the club he was heavily linked with in the summer.
CM) Granit Xhaka
Granit Xhaka will start and be looking for a better level of performance than he has been putting in in recent weeks.
CM) Aaron Ramsey
Aaron Ramsey will be looking to continue his good run of form.
LWB) Sead Kolasinac
Sead Kolasinac was an injury doubt in the week but we think the Bosnian will return in time to start.
RAM) Mesut Ozil
LAM) Alexis Sanchez
It won’t be the last time Alexis Sanchez plays at the Etihad Stadium, but it probably will be the last time he does it in an Arsenal shirt.
ST) Alexandre Lacazette
Alexandre Lacazette will undoubtedly start.
