Arsenal will face Manchester City as they welcome them to the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night hoping to widen the lead. The Gunners come into the match on the back of a lacklustre 1-1 draw against Brentford, so they will be looking to produce a better result in this crucial midweek clash against the Sky Blues.
Mikel Arteta will make use of the 4-3-3 formation and is expected to name the same first XI to win this most anticipated encounter in the Premier League. Eddie Nketiah will lead the line against Man City while Aaron Ramsdale operates in between the sticks to keep the opposition attackers from finding the back of the net.
4-3-3 Arsenal Predicted XI Vs Manchester City
Aaron Ramsdale will continue to function in between the sticks for the Gunners after shipping in one goal in his last league outing. William Saliba will resume his defensive partnership with Gabriel at the centre of Arsenal’s backline as they try to keep the opposition attackers at bay throughout the game.
Ben White will continue to function as the right-back while Oleksandr Zinchenko hopes to catch the eye on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them could get the license to get forward and join in on the attack at every chance they get.
Takehiro Tomiyasu and Rob Holding will be available for selection on the bench as they offer cover for the defensive positions.
Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey and Martin Odegaard will make up Arsenal’s midfield once again as they focus on dominating the battle at the centre of the park and orchestrate enough clear-cut chances to win this crucial contest.
The Gunners will also have Jorginho and Fabio Vieira available on the bench as both of them wait for a chance to shine in the second half if required.
Gabriel Martinelli will operate as the left-sided wide player while Bukayo Saka looks to give a good account of himself as the right-winger. Both of them will try to get in behind the opposition’s backline looking to cause a menace inside their penalty box.
Eddie Nketiah will act as the focal point of Arsenal’s attack once again in the injury absence of Gabriel Jesus, who is still recovering from a knee problem.
Leandro Trossard will have to settle for a spot on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the latter stages if the Gunners are in need of a goal by then.
