Between Arsenal and Manchester City, the confrontation promises to be daunting. If successful, the Citizens will indeed come back up to the Gunners and completely relaunch the title race. TV channel, probable compositions… Here is the information to know about the meeting.
The context of Arsenal-Manchester City
This Wednesday evening (8:30 p.m.), the title race should experience a decisive and exciting episode in the Premier League. The championship leader, Arsenal, indeed receives his runner-up, Manchester City, at the Emirates. After a string of successes, the Gunners have slowed down and have not won any of their last two meetings. Mikel Arteta’s proteges were notably surprised outside by Everton (1-0).
On the Mancunian side, the dynamic is clearly the opposite. After a rather moribund month of January, Pep Guardiola seems to have restarted the machine. The Sky Blues won easily (3-1) against Aston Villa last weekend. Taking advantage of the Gunners’ missteps, the defending champions returned to just three units from the North London stable. While the title seemed out of reach a few weeks ago, everything became possible again.
The probable compositions of Arsenal-Manchester City
On the Gunners side, Gabriel Jesus is continuing his return to competition after his injury during the World Cup but should not be fit for this Premier League shock. Emile Smith Row should suffer the same fate. In the opposite camp, Pep Guardiola will be able to count on all of his vital forces with the exception of defender John Stones.
Arsenal’s likely line-up
Ramsdale – Zinchenko, Saliba, Gabriel, White – Xhaka, Partey, Odegaard – Trossard, Nketiah, Saka
