Manchester City take on Arsenal as they welcome them to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night for this most anticipated Premier League contest. The Sky Blues trail the Gunners by five points in the race for the title, but they have two more matches to play than their rivals. If they secure a victory in this midweek contest, they could potentially have a strong chance of claiming the title.

Pep Guardiola will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a few changes from their last outing, resulting in a splendid 3-0 victory against Sheffield United in the FA Cup semifinals. Kyle Walker gets to play from the start again, while Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake replace Aymeric Laporte and Manuel Akanji.

Ederson will feature in between the sticks for Man City after keeping a clean sheet in his last outing. Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake will form a three-man backline at the heart of Guardiola’s defence as they try to keep the opposition attackers at bay during the game.

Manuel Akanji and Aymeric Laporte will be named on the bench as they wait to shine in the second 45 minutes if needed.


John Stones and Rodri will operate in the holding midfield positions, looking to shield the back four and engineer enough chances for Man City in the attacking third to win this contest.

Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne will operate right ahead of them as they try to dominate possession in the middle of the park and be a menace for the opposition defenders in front of the goal.

Riyad Mahrez will function as the right-sided wide player while Jack Grealish operates on the opposite flank; both will have to provide support from the wide areas and cut into the penalty box to create chances in front of the goal.

Ilkay Gundogan will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second half if needed.


Erling Haaland will lead the Mancunian giants’ line on the pitch’s attacking third. The Norway international would be eager to get his name on the scoresheet when he laces up to face off against the Gunners.

Phil Foden has returned to full fitness after appearing in the last game, so he would be pushing for a start but might take a spot on the bench to provide cover for the forward positions.
