Manchester City will head into the game against Arsenal on Sunday looking for their seventeenth consecutive win in all competitions, following their 3-1 victory over Everton during the week.
They will be facing a Gunners team who will have one eye on their Europa League last-32 second-leg tie against Benfica next Thursday, and manager Mikel Arteta is expected to make a number of changes to his starting eleven.
In terms of team news, City had just two fitness concerns going into the match. Ilkay Gundogan is expected to shake off a groin problem to feature at the Emirates while Nathan Ake is back in training after a hamstring injury.
Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Play Arsenal:
Ederson, Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo, Silva, Rodri, Foden, Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Sterling
The Gunners have just one injury to worry about, with Thomas Partey currently sidelined with a thigh injury he picked up in the 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa.
Arsenal’s Predicted XI:
Leno, Cedric, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney, Ceballos, Odegaard, Elneny, Pepe, Lacazette, Martinelli
The bookmakers have City as the favourites with Betfred pricing them at 8/15 odds-on for the win. A draw is 7/2 with Betway while an Arsenal victory is currently 11/2 at Bet 365.
Predicted Score – 2-0 to City
