Mikel Arteta and Pep Guardiola have now named their respective Arsenal and Manchester City starting line-ups for Sunday’s Premier League clash at the Emirates.
Manchester City travel to North London looking to extend their impressive winning run over Arsenal in the Premier League, with Pep Guardiola’s side unbeaten since 2015 against last season’s top-flight title rivals.
The Blues suffered a surprise loss to Wolves at Molineux last weekend, but could move four points clear of Arsenal at the top of the Premier League table with a win at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Manchester City bounced back from successive defeats with a late 1-3 win over RB Leipzig on Wednesday night, as Julian Alvarez and Jeremy Doku scored late goals at the Red Bull Arena during the Group G clash.
Pep Guardiola will be hoping for a victory prior to the October international break, and has welcomed back key duo Bernardo Silva and John Stones ahead of the visit to North London, however the latter is expected to miss out due to a lack of sufficient match fitness.
Kevin De Bruyne, who has been influential in the past against the Gunners, remains sidelined through a long-term hamstring injury, and Rodri will serve the final match of a three-game suspension this weekend after being sent off last month against Nottingham Forest.
Pep Guardiola himself will also return to the dugout at the Emirates Stadium, after serving a one-match touchline ban at Wolves last weekend due to an accumulation of yellow cards this season.
