THE TEAM NEWS

ARSENAL

  • Arsenal got their first win at West Ham unde Freddie Ljungberg to snap their long winless run and give them some much-needed confidence.
  • Ljungberg went with just the one striker and played Aubameyang through the middle and he will surely stick to that 4-2-3-1 formation here.
  • They have a number of injury doubts coming into this game but Pepe seems the most likely to be fit while Bellerin faces a late fitness test.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Leno; Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Chambers, Kolasinac; Torreira, Guendouzi; Pepe, Ozil, Martinelli; Aubameyang

Unavailable: Dani Ceballos (Injured), Holding (Injured), Tierney (Injured)

Doubtful: Bellerin (Injured), Pepe (Injured), Xhaka (Injured)

MAN CITY

  • City bounced back from their derby defeat against United by travelling to Zagreb and beating Dinamo in their midweek Champions League match.
  • Pep Guardiola used that match to give playing time to some of his fringe players as he made a whole host of changes for that game.
  • Ederson missed the game through illness while David Silva is a doubt here, but all Guardiola's regulars should return to the starting XI.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Zinchenko; Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne; Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Sterling

Unavailable: Sane (Injured), Laporte (Injured), Aguero (Injured), Stones (Injured)

Doubtful: David Silva (Injured), Ederson (Illness)

THE PREDICTION

Arsenal managed to come from behind to beat West Ham on Monday night but that win over the struggling Hammers may mask their own deficiencies. City are not at their best but they can take advantage of this woeful Gunners defence and win what could turn into a shootout between these two.
