[Teams] Arsenal vs Man City: Confirmed Line-ups

By on January 13, 2013

Arsenal welcome champions Manchester City to the Emirates this afternoon for the second part of ‘Super Sunday’.

The Gunners will be looking to close the gap on the top-four and victory today will move them to within three-points of rivals Tottenham with a game in hand. City on the other hand will hope to keep pace with league leaders Man Utd who are on course to open up a ten-point gap at the top of the league as they currently lead Liverpool 2-1 at Old Trafford (at the time of writing).

Mikel Arteta misses the game for Arsenal after picking up a calf injury in training so Abou Diaby returns after playing for the under-21’s in midweek. Theo Walcott continues up front.

City are without Yaya Toure – who’s away at the African Cup of Nations – and Sergio Aguero – who’s out with a hamstring injury. Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game:

Arsenal Team

Szczesny, Sagna, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Gibbs, Diaby, Wilshere, Cazorla, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Podolski, Walcott

Subs: Mannone, Jenkinson, Santos, Mertesacker, Ramsey, Coquelin, Giroud

Man City Team

Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Nastasic, Clichy, Garcia, Barry, Milner, Tevez, Silva, Dzeko

Subs: Lescott, Sinclair, Kolarov, Pantilimon, Suarez, Rekik, Balotelli
