Watch Manchester City vs Arsenal Live Streaming Free Online, Manchester City are back in Premier League action on Saturday evening as they welcome Arsenal to the Etihad.
Pep Guardiola will be hoping to see a big reaction from his side as City have failed to win in their last two league outings, after being hammered 5-2 by Leicester City then drawing 1-1 with Leeds United before the international break.
It won’t be an easy match against the Gunners though, as manager Mikel Arteta had his old club’s number when the two sides last met in the last four of the FA Cup last season – winning the match 2-0.
The Blues are without Kevin De Bruyne after he returned to Manchester early from Belgium duty, while Gabriel Jesus is also out.
Sergio Aguero does start after several months out but Aymeric Laporte and Benjamin Mendy were surprise omissions from the squad when the team news arrived at 4.30pm.
Manchester City starting XI vs Arsenal: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Ake, Cancelo, Rodrigo, Mahrez, Foden, Bernardo, Sterling (C), Aguero
Substitutes: Steffen, Stones, Gundogan, Torres, Fernandinho, Delap, Garcia
Arsenal Lineup against Man City
So Keiran Tierney does start for Arsenal, but Thomas Partey is on the bench. There’s no David Luiz either, with Rob Holding and Gabriel in defence. It also looks like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be in a central role, rather than the left-wing role that he was so clinical in as Arsenal dumped City out of the FA Cup at Wembley in July.
Fans will be delighted to see Joao Cancelo at left-back instead of Benjamin Mendy. The Portuguese full-back had a good international break for his country, and impressed on the left towards the end of last season. Mendy hasn’t had the best start to the season, but with him missing from the squad entirely through injury, it seems his omission is enforced rather than a tactical decision.
🚨 Three changes from Sheffield United…
➡️ Holding, Xhaka, Pepe
⬅️ David Luiz, Elneny, Nketiah#MCIARS
