Arsenal make the tough trip to Manchester to take on the Premier League leaders today, as we look to close to within six points of the top.
Our opponents come into the match on the back of 14 straight wins (one of those wins came on penalties with the rest inside 90 minutes) in all competitions, and are looking extremely impressive so far this season, and our side will need to at their best to hurt them.
Arsenal come into the game with mixed form, but our players could benefit from being much the fresher with us having completely rotated our XI for the Europa League on Thursday, while City had a tough match away to Napoli in midweek.
We do have a few injuries which will make our efforts a little tougher, with Sead Kolasinac and Shkodran Mustafi appearing to be the biggest loss to our line-up. The former has been one of our best players since joining this summer, and would have been a huge boost to our chances had he made the trip.

I can’t pretend that I’m overly confident coming into this match, and I’m not sure I’m convinced of the rumours hinting that Alex Iwobi will be given a role at wing-back in such a huge match, but I’m not ruling out a top performance from our side. I feel the match will stem on the performance of the four in front of the centre-backs,
Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka will need to be at their best in the middle, and Iwobi (or whoever is chosen to fill in for the injured Kolasinac at wing-back) will also be under pressure to deal with a huge attacking threat.
On current form it is hard to predict our side to win, and I hate assume we will lose, but current form has me expecting a 2-1 loss, but I would never bet on that as I couldn’t bring myself any possible joy where my team’s defeat is concerned.
Are any of you confident of ending our rivals run of wins this weekend? Am I wrong to expect defeat?
