Manchester City dangerman might be back against Arsenal, means trouble

Arsenal will face Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend as league football returns.

The Gunners will have their team boosted by the signing of Thomas Partey who is expected to make his first start for the team.

Their opponents have had a troubled start to the season with the Citizens winning just one of their three league games so far.

Arsenal has three wins from four and they will be looking for their second win against Manchester City in as many games.

However, Arsenal’s task is set to be made tougher with the Star reporting that Sergio Aguero is set to make his return from injury in that game.

According to the same report, the Argentine striker, who has been out with injury since June, is fit to play and Pep Guardiola will likely feature him in the game.

It remains unclear if the former Atletico Madrid man will be involved from the start or if he will be starting from the bench, but he presents a new problem for Arsenal to consider.

The striker has scored 254 goals in 370 appearances for them and he remains one of the deadliest strikers in the world.

  1. When Aquero has been out for a while, it always seems to take him a game or two to get back into being at his very best, so fingers crossed.
    However, with Gabriel and, hopefully Partey and Tierney, we are a team that city should be worried about – I only hope that MA attacks them and doesn’t respect them to much.

    1. Ken, that is our only hope of getting anything from the game, IMO. I doubt Aguero will start but come on later.

    2. And our danger man, Mesut Ozil on board, hope the Citizens didn’t bed wet. But wait, Sergio takes a game or two to get back to his best, our danger man takes 4-5 seasons and counting!

  2. One man doesnt make a team. There is no doubt about his talent.If so how did Arteta beat MC in the Fa cup?
    If Wenger were in charge, I will be nervous because the other teams have got the measure of him and he still plays the same way.
    I believe its abou t time Arsenal win at Maine Road.

  3. Even without KDB, City are dangerous and Arsenal should be cautious. Its not a question of being fearful or negative but only a question of being careful. I still feel MA should go with a 343 formation as that has given us the best results. If changes are required he can change them during the game. I still feel this game might be too early for Partey to start, maybe he will come on as a sub.
