Arsenal v Man City Build-up & Predicted Score for Premier League clash

Manchester City make the trip south to take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in today’s early evening kick-off.

The Gunners come into the match with inconsistent form, but the performances of late have been more than decent. Today will be our toughest opponents in a long time however.

Man City come into this match on the back of a record 17 wins in a row, and a win today would be their 11th consecutive away win all competitions also.

The Gunners on the other hand have just one win from their last five in all competitions, and will need to be at their very best to overcome a very confident City side.

In the reverse fixture, our side was the more dominant, and it was painful to see that our side lost 1-0 after having watched us be the better team.

That doesn’t bode well that we couldn’t win being the team who had the better chances, and their form is so much better now…

Our rivals also look set to bring De Bruyne and Aguero back into their starting line-up from injuries, as mentioned in our updated team news post earlier on today.

Does anyone expect Arsenal to raise their game for today’s opposition? Is anyone banking on City to crumble under the pressure of maintaining their extended record winning streak?

  1. Our first priority should be to keep eleven players on the pitch .If we can do this , and match their work rate off the ball, we can cause them a few problems.If Man City have a weakness, it is in the left back area, and in Saka, we have a player who can exploit any space in that area of the pitch.The worst thing we can do is to show them too much respect and fail to battle for possession.

  2. Spuds lost again! Brings a little joy to my life until i realise how pathetic we are to still be behind them despite their shocking form.

  3. My preferred attack

    Lacazette
    Pepe Odegaard Aubameyang

    Saka and ESR need a rest. And Lacazette has been our best striker this season. We need his hold up play upfront. I’ll like to see more of Pepe on the left.

    COYG!

    1. This can’t be the match to rest the best players. Give them a run in a big game to ascertain their level.

  4. I ask myself everyday does Westham and Leicester or even Villa have better squads than ours and the answer is NO.
    The difference is the manager. Hence climbing the table will require changes.

  5. At this point, I dont really know what we consider priority, EPL or Europa? Should we rest players for Europe? What if we do and city massacre us by big goals. I remember lots of people complain when players were rested in FA. So what will be the reaction in an hour When The team news is out

  6. Being a realist, I’m looking at a defeat to the Gooners. Sorry. It’s a matter of by how many?

    Based on form alone it’s difficult to see Arsenal getting much from the game. What I’m more focusing on is the performance. I want to see us trying to compete with energy and commitment. Passion and pride!

  7. 2-2

    …………………………..Leno
    Bellerin..Holding..Mari..Tierney
    …………….Ceballos……Xhaka
    Pepe…………..Odregard….Martinelli
    ………………….Aubameyang
