A struggling Arsenal take on defending champions Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
Both sides have had a disappointing season so far, with the Gunners currently sitting at ninth place and seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea. Meanwhile, City have been inconsistent at times this season, which saw them slip to third in the league standings.
However, Pep Guardiola’s City are 10 points in front of Freddie Ljungberg’s Arsenal but the 2-1 derby loss to Manchester United in their last league game has left them 14 points behind leaders Liverpool.
The Brazilian is, without a doubt, one of the best in the league and has kept 5 clean sheets so far this season.
The Englishman has been a regular in the squad for some time now. He has been crucial for Man City since arriving at the club.
With John Stones injured, the veteran defender gets the nod. A tough defender in his prime, Otamendi is prone to mistakes these days.
In the absence of Aymeric Laporte, the seasoned Brazilian has established himself as the first-choice centre-back and has won the trust of Guardiola.
Angelino has started more games for City than Mendy this season. He has looked dangerous whenever he has played and gets into the team ahead of his Arsenal counterparts as well.
This has been a breakthrough season for the young Frenchman and he deservedly gets into this side ahead of Rodrigo, although it’s an arguable decision.
An inevitable presence in any squad and one of the best midfielders of his generation, De Bruyne (9) is the leading assist-provider in the league.
With midfield magician David Silva still remaining doubtful due to injury, Bernardo Silva, with 5 goals and 4 assists is surely the next in line to start.
Probably Arsenal’s only consistent player on the pitch. He is a prolific goal-scorer and has been in good form as always. He has 11 goals to his name as of now.
The Brazilian youngster scored a hat-trick against Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League recently and has also scored 5 league goals.
One of the top players in the world, Sterling has been key to City’s recent successes. He has scored 8 league goals and 5 in Champions League.
