Arsenal Team News & Preview
Arsenal host Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend and the Gunners will be under immense pressure to bounce back with a win.
They have lost four of their last five league games and cannot afford to drop more points if they want to stay in the race for a top-four finish.
Arsenal have impressed against Manchester City in their last few meetings and Arsene Wenger will be hoping for more of the same here.
The home side will be without Petr Cech, Lucas Perez, Kieran Gibbs and Santi Cazorla for this one.
Predicted Arsenal Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): Ospina; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Xhaka, Coquelin; Chamberlain, Ozil, Walcott; Alexis

Manchester City were quite impressive against Liverpool in their last outing and were unlucky not to win. They will be looking to pile further misery on a struggling Arsenal side this weekend.

The away side will be without new signing Gabriel Jesus and Gundogan for the trip to Emirates. De Bruyne and Sterling are doubtful as well, but they are expected to recover.
Predicted Manchester City Starting Lineup (4-1-4-1): Caballero; Fernandinho, Stones, Otamendi, Clichy; Toure; Sane, Silva, De Bruyne, Sterling; Aguero

Both sides love to play free flowing attacking football and there should be plenty of chances for either side.
Wenger’s men will need to improve at the back if they want to contain the likes of De Bruyne and Aguero. Meanwhile, City have been pretty fragile at the back as well.
