Arsenal v Manchester City: match preview


Manchester City have done perfectly well without Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Agüero but it will hardly cheer Arsenal that both are pushing for starts after returning to the bench recently. Mikel Arteta will need his squad to feel fresh if they are to end City’s winning run and boost their European prospects, so he may rotate, given the same XI started against both Leeds and Benfica. Kieran Tierney should return at left-back but one or two of the front four could be rotated, with Nicolas Pépé and Alexandre Lacazette hoping for extended involvement. Nick Ames
