Strongest Arsenal Lineup To Face Manchester City – Danny Welbeck To Lead The Attack

Arsenal are getting ready to face their first major challenge of this season as they host the defending champions Manchester City on Saturday  at the Emirates Stadium. Lets analyse how the gunners may  lineup against the men in blue,

Predicted Arsenal Lineup vs Manchester City

Goalkeeper: Summer signing David Ospina started training again after injury but the Polish international Wojciech Szczęsny will start for sure.

Defence: Laurent Koscielny is also back after suffering a head injury against Leicester City. The French defender will partner Per Mertesacker in the central defence. Kieran Gibbs is also available, but Wenger may prefer starting Nacho Monreal, giving more time for Gibbs to make a complete recovery. Mathieu Debuchy will slot in perfectly in the right side of the defence.

Midfield: Mikel Arteta is fit again after missing 3 weeks of action. He will take up his usual deep play maker role. Aaron Ramsey is a doubt for the game with an ankle problem. If the Welsh star fail to make it, Jack Wilshere will partner Arteta in the central midfield. Mesut Ozil will play behind the striker in his favourite no 10 role.

Attack: Santi Cazorla will try to use his play making skills from the left wing while Alexis Sanchez  will be looking forward to execute his trademark high speed dribbles from the right, giving nightmares to the opposition defenders.

Arsenal’s deadline day signing Danny Welbeck will lead the attack in the absence of Olivier Giroud. The young English star is full of confidence after scoring a brace for England in the Euro qualifiers.
