Jesus On The Right, Aguero Up Front – Strongest 4-1-3-2 Manchester City Line-up To Face Arsenal On Sunday

Predicted Manchester City Line-up To Face Arsenal In The Premier League

Manchester City travelled to Italy to fetch a 4-2 victory over Maurizio Sarri’s in-form Napoli side, as they continue their juggernaut this season. They beat West Brom 3-2 last weekend in the league, but face a tricky fixture this weekend when they welcome Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal, who have won their last two games in the competition.

Pep Guardiola’s side will look to inflict yet another loss on their fellow top-6 rivals but Wenger will have his plans to dethrone Guardiola’s side from top of the table. They remain unbeaten but this could be a game where their run could be tested.

Team News

Vincent Kompany and Benjamin Mendy remain the only absentees from this game for the manager yet again.

Formation: 4-1-3-2

Manager: Pep Guardiola

GK – Ederson

The first choice shot-stopper for City, Ederson has been in decent form and will keep his place in this side.

RB – Kyle Walker

The former Spurs man has not been as consistent as his teammates but will have a tough task against the likes of Alexis Sanchez this weekend.

CB – John Stones

After some excellent outings recently, Stones will be high on confidence and will not be an easy nut to crack for the likes of Lacazette.

CB – Nicolas Otamendi

Arguably one of the best defenders in the league at the moment, Otamendi has been the best at City and should start alongside Stones.

LB – Fabian Delph

Though Danilo has been impressive, Guardiola has stuck with Delph at left-back and should not make any changes for this crunch clash.

CDM – Fernandinho

Though Ilkay Gundogan is back to full fitness, Fernandinho has been effective and should be trusted against a well-drilled Arsenal side.

CM – Kevin de Bruyne

The Belgian has been at the top of his game for City this season and will have to be kept quiet if the visitors are to take something from this game.

CM – David Silva

The Spaniard has been in sublime form this season and is expected to keep the pressure on the Arsenal backline, playing just in front of Fernandinho.

LM – Leroy Sane

The 21-year old has been one of the most productive wingers in England this season and should start on the left-hand side of the attack for Manchester City.

RM – Gabriel Jesus

The Brazilian has been simply unstoppable this season and though he has been benched often, he is expected to start this game.

ST – Sergio Aguero

Guardiola might field both Aguero and Jesus in the first-team as he looks to rip Arsenal apart. Aguero will be high on confidence after becoming Man City’s highest ever goal scorer – the record which he broke against Napoli in the Champions League.
