Manchester City will entertain Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium this Wednesday night as both sides go all out in search of a win in the Premier League. Man City managed to secure a dominant 3-0 win over Sheffield United recently. In contrast, the Gunners were held to a frustrating 3-3 draw at home to Southampton last weekend.

Manchester City Vs Arsenal: Talking Tactics

Pep Guardiola will opt for a 3-2-2-3 formation once again and would ask his men to dominate the ball and create enough chances to win this contest.

Mikel Arteta will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to instruct his players to press the opposition high up the field and try to catch them off-guard on the counter.

Team News

Manchester City

Nathan Ake is a major doubt for this game as he continues to recover from a thigh injury. Otherwise, Guardiola has no fresh injury concerns to cope with in midweek.

Manchester City Predicted XI

Ederson; Akanji, Dias, Laporte; Stones, Rodri; Mahrez, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Grealish; Haaland

William Saliba will be sidelined for this game as he is currently out of action with a back injury. However, Granit Xhaka will be back for this crucial clash at the Etihad.

Arsenal Predicted XI

Ramsdale; White, Holding, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus

Key Men

Manchester City

Erling Haaland will be Man City’s most potent weapon up top. We can expect Jack Grealish and Kevin de Bruyne to carry most of the creative workload for Guardiola’s side in the opponent’s half.


The defensive performance of Rob Holding and Gabriel could go a long way in determining the fate of this contest. Both Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli would look to give a good account of themselves and make a real difference for the Gunners out on the flanks
