Arsenal will on Saturday next week be welcomed at the Etihad Stadium by Manchester City and they will hope to leave that stadium with their first win against a big six side away from home since 2015 where Santi Cazorla inspired the North Londoners over a win over The Citizens. Arsenal have received a huge boost ahead of this game after the latest news about Guardiola’s squad.
Arsenal lost to Manchester City twice in the Premier League last season but they however snatched a win over them at the Etihad Stadium in the Emirates FA Cup semi finals, but Mikel Arteta has however claimed that the cup competition games are usually different from league games and that they will need to work twice as hard to get all the three points in the league.
Arsenal have received a boost ahead of the game against Manchester City as a report by Football.London claims that the 2019 Premier League champions will not have Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko in the squad that will have to face Mikel Arteta’s men next week due to injury related problems. This will be a boost for Arsenal as Manchester City have struggled in the past two games due to not having a natural striker on the pitch and there is also the fact that Aguero has a good record against the gunners.
Manchester City playing with no striker next Saturday will be a good tactical advantage for Mikel Arteta as he tries to get a second win over his mentor. The gunners are currently in the fourth position on the Premier League table and a win over Pep Guardiola’s men would be huge for them as they have failed to beat a big six side away from home in the last five years.
