Manchester City vs Arsenal – Premier League – Taking into consideration that Manchester City have undoubtedly lost the English title already
Manchester City vs Arsenal –And that Pep Guardiola’s side will be entirely focused in trying to win the Champions League this season,
it is likely that we will see this being a very open and attacking match, even because the Gunners don’t know how to play with a defensive style.
Besides that, without having a combative midfield, the Citizens’ 4-3-3 will essentially be an attacking side, with Rodrigo, Gundogan and David Silva in midfield, looking to surprise the Gunners that have poor central midfielders like Xhaka and Ceballos, especially defensively speaking.
I believe that the Citizens will dominate the actions in midfield, due to the difference in terms of quality, on that context, between the two sides,
and also taking into consideration the lack of precision of the Gunners’ central defenders in terms of marking and tackling, especially David Luiz. It is natural that Gabriel Jesus and Sterling, who also really likes to play on the inside, have ease in penetrating the opposing defence and surprising Leno.
However, in terms of quick attacking onslaughts and more vertical football, the team from London seems to have better arguments, since they count with Pépé and Aubameyang in support to Lacazette and, to make matters worse, City will play with the slow and out of rhythm Stones and with Fernandinho, once again, as an improvised central defender.
Basically, this should be a closer match than it suggests at first sight, with several goals from both sides.
On the side of the Citizens, L.Sané and Laporte are confirmed absences while on the side of the Gunners Cédric Soares, Kolasinac, L. Torreira, K. Tierney and C. Chambers make up the list of unavailable players.
The Citizens, before losing 0-2 away from home at Old Trafford, have advanced in the FA Cup, by beating Sheffield Wednesday by 1-0, away from home.
