Arsenal vs. Manchester City Preview: Prediction, Team news, Lineups

Arsenal and Manchester City are set to face off in a thrilling Premier League contest at the Emirates Stadium.

This highly anticipated match has fans eagerly awaiting the clash between the two teams.

Match Preview

Both Arsenal and Manchester City had Champions League fixtures away from home recently.

Arsenal suffered a 2-1 defeat against Lens, while Manchester City managed a late comeback to win 3-1 against RB Leipzig.

In the previous Premier League game, Manchester City’s unbeaten streak came to an end with a loss against Wolverhampton.

Despite taking the lead through Gabriel Jesus, defensive errors allowed Lens to equalize and eventually secure the victory.

Arsenal faced challenging weather conditions and injuries to key players, including Bukayo Saka, further impacting their performance.

However, Arsenal remains one of the top-performing teams in the Premier League this season, sitting comfortably in third place.

They have displayed strong attacking prowess at home, scoring in all their matches at the Emirates Stadium.

Nonetheless, they are yet to keep a clean sheet in a home league game this season.

Manchester City, like Arsenal, faced difficulties in their away Champions League fixture.

They were pegged back after taking the lead by RB Leipzig but managed to secure a victory with late goals.

City’s recent away form has been inconsistent, with only four clean sheets on the road in 2023.

The upcoming match is crucial for both teams. Arsenal will be looking to break their 12-game losing streak against Manchester City in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Manchester City aims to avenge their Community Shield defeat against Arsenal earlier this year.

Team News:

Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka is a doubt for the match due to a hamstring injury. Fabio Vieira may replace him, while Gabriel Martinelli and Jurrien Timber will likely miss the game due to their respective injuries.

Manchester City will be without Kevin De Bruyne and Rodri due to injuries and suspension, respectively. John Stones is also unavailable despite returning from injury.

Possible Lineups:

Arsenal:

Raya;

White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko;

Odegaard, Rice, Partey;

Vieira, Nketiah, Jesus

Manchester City:

Ederson;

Walker, Dias, Akanji, Gvardiol;

Lewis, Kovacic;

Foden, Alvarez, Doku;

Haaland

Prediction:

In a match that could swing either way, Manchester City holds a slight advantage due to Arsenal’s defensive vulnerabilities at home.

While Arsenal will miss the influence of Bukayo Saka, City’s absence of De Bruyne and Rodri may level the playing field.

  • Our prediction is a 2-1 victory for Manchester City.
