Following Wednesday’s win at Serie-A leaders Napoli, Manchester City have no injury concerns going into Sunday’s clash against Arsenal.
Mid-week substitutes Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker and David Silva are all expected to return to City’s starting eleven, whilst captain Vincent Kompany and former Monaco man Benjamin Mendy still remain out with long-term injuries.
After coming off injured last weekend against Swansea, Arsenal’s summer signing Sead Kolasinac should overcome a hip injury to fight for a place to start against the league leaders. Danny Welbeck, Shkodran Mustafi, Callum Chambers and Santi Carzola all remain out for the Gunner’s with long-term injuries.
Manchester City’s only win in their last nine games against Arsenal came last season at the Etihad in a 1-0 victory.
An Arsenal victory on Sunday would equal City’s record of Premier League defeats against any team they’ve faced.
Both City (71%) and Arsenal (65%) have the highest average ball possession in the Premier league so far this season.
Predicted City line up – Ederson (GK), Walker (RB), Stones (CB), Otamendi (CB), Delph (LB), Fernandihno (DM), Silva (CM), De Bruyne (CM), Sane (LW), Sterling (RW), Jesus (CF).
Predicted Arsenal line up – Cech (GK), Kolasinac (RB), Koscielny (CB), Holding (CB), Bellerin (LB), Coquelin (DM), Ramsey (CM), Ozil (CM), Xhaka (DM), Sanchez (CF), Lacazette (CF).
