Confirmed Arsenal team to take on Man City at the Emirates

The teams are out for today’s big clash with Manchester City, where Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will be hoping they can end a record run of wins.

Pep Guardiola’s side come into the clash on the back of 17 straight wins in all competitions, but all records must come to an end at some point right?

Arsenal do not have the best form going into the match, so fingers crossed that this goes against that, but we do have a six-match unbeaten streak at home to defend also.

Arteta will be hoping to mastermind his second victory over his former boss, after his side’s 2-0 victory in the FA Cup semi-final last season, but he is yet to overcome Pep in the Premier League in his two attempts thus far, although this will be his first attempt at the Emirates.

A win today could see the Gunners climb up to eighth in the Premier League, depending on Aston Villa’s result with Leicester which is currently ongoing.

We were aware that Runarsson was already missing from the line-up, but it’s nice to see Rob Holding return to the team. Nicolas Pepe also deserves his start, in what looks like the manager showing priority to the Europa League.

After seeing the team, what do you predict will be the scoreline?

    Ffs, no martanelli.

    Guess he does not want a game changer because he happy with result.

    Elneny been better than xhaka, i just dont get his subs

    1. Ackshay says:

      Lmao elneny better than xhaka, get your eyesight checked

  2. Thebush says:

    First 2 min aside…I think we had a good game

    1. Mambo says:

      Decent defensively, but far from a good game. Simple passes were maybe to look almost impossible

      1. Thebush says:

        The best you can do against City at the moment I’m afraid

  3. Dan kit says:

    I’m goer moan .
    No Martinelli ,very weird playing a loan player then bringing on another loan player .
    I’m not a football manager but ffs surely I’m not the only one that can see how good this kid is .

    1. Mambo says:

      Yeah, I just dont get it, Arteta seems to have his favorites and if youre not one, no matter how good you are, tough you not getting in team.

      I hope he leaves for his sake or goes on loan at least, he ismgoing to rot with Arteta in charge

  4. FootballisTrivial says:

    I hope Martinelli leaves. He’s obviously not injured. Pepe starting over Martinelli? Yes it makes literally no sense.

  5. GunneRay says:

    90 mins and not one shot on target! Typical!!🤨

    1. Perry ames says:

      I’m actually quite embarrassed by this club at the moment. No guts no ideas no leadership but then I grew up with real men playing for us
      Ie: peter story charlie George frank McClintock and so on. Where do we go from here 25pts off the top so so sad and I really cant defend the players anymore. If anyone can please post as I need some cheering up but no crap please because if anyone says that man city are top and that was a good performance I just dont see it. There were spells in the game but nowhere near enough for arsenal

  6. Raw1 says:

    Once we get rid of bellerin xhaka elneny Luiz Pepe aubemayang lacazette might start rebuilding !!! … but not under arteta .. a clueless manager

    1. damy says:

      Maybe arteta should be first on that list

  7. Mambo says:

    Unless we plan on making Odeggard permanent, why does he start above smoth rowe.

    I dont get it

    1. FootballisTrivial says:

      ESR has been faultless. Odegaard starting over ESR didn’t make sense. Also odegaard didn’t as well as ESR has been.

    2. Tam says:

      Rumor is shin splints for ESR, they want to be careful he doesn’t get injured while he builds up the muscle around it

  8. RSH says:

    thats just awful. why this guy the manager?

  9. POES_LEKKER says:

    Martinelli, poor kid. Probably the best work rate + potential in the team

    Playing loanees over him? We going to lose him.

  10. adajim says:

    better side won, but whats with early goals?

    1. Danny says:

      Just played for damage limitation this team had no belief that they could beat city and it showed how much longer do we have to put up with this clueless manager!!

  11. Joe. S says:

    Fail safe. Arteta must be happy.

  12. RSH says:

    look at all these smiles after the game too. They really just aren’t bothered. Disgraceful.

  13. Gmv8 says:

    Tbh pretty similar to the Villa game concede while still asleep in the first minute, then spend the rest of the game toothless in attack. Really disappointing to have the same sort of game again.

  14. S says:

    City took it from the villa book. Score in the first 2 minutes cos we’re crap at knowing when the whistle blew, then sit back and relax as they know we can’t hit a barn door.

    You know you’re shit when EVERYONE knows how to beat you.

    1. avenger says:

      you couldn’t say it any better

    2. Dboy says:

      Really? City has been outstanding and we just gave them a tough time. They are No. 1 on the log and you comparing them to Villa. Come on.. Really?

      1. S says:

        Yes really. City are cantering. They know crappier teams have beaten us so they can play us at 60% and still get all three points.
        They have bigger fish to fry in European competition.

  15. Dboy says:

    Oh Well. Good contest City didn’t have it all their own way. Bring on next game. We need to stop conceding in the first half and so early too. Man the board really needs to back the Manager financially.

  16. Phil says:

    Clueless
    Toothless
    Gutless

  17. Jax says:

    Keeping the score at 0-1 was quite an achievement, although City were mostly in second gear and are light years ahead of Arsenal in all aspects of football (other than financing).

    1. Jax says:

      other than ‘honest’ financing
