Key Trio Fit For Guardiola: Predicted Man City XI vs Arsenal
Manchester City take on Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon. Here is the side we think Pep Guardiola will select for the game:
Manchester City will be looking to cement their position in the top four when they take on Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
Here is the side we think Pep Guardiola will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Claudio Bravo was left on the bench for City’s last few games before the international break including the draw with Liverpool so it looks like Willy Caballero may now be the Spaniard’s preferred choice between the sticks.
Defence: John Stones has been criticised on several occasions this season but I think the young Englishman will keep his place alongside Nicolas Otamendi in the middle of defence on Sunday.
Pablo Zabaleta is also pushing for a recall after being declared fit for selection but I think Bacary Sagna may get the nod against his old club while Gael Clichy should keep his place at left-back.
Midfield: Fernandinho is expected to be preferred to Yaya Toure in the midfield holding role so I think we’ll see the Ivory Coast international having to make do with a place on the bench.
Kevin de Bruyne has been passed fit by Guardiola after recovering from a thigh injury that kept him out of Belgium’s recent games against Greece and Russia so he should start alongside David Silva in midfield.
Attack: Gabriel Jesus is making good progress in his recovery from injury and could be back before the end of the season but he won’t feature this weekend so Sergio Aguero will once again lead the line up front against Arsenal.
Raheem Sterling is fit and available for selection despite picking up a minor back problem during England’s World Cup qualifying win over Lithuania so he should keep his place in attack along with Leroy Sane.
Here is how I think we’ll see City line-up:
