As Arsenal gear up to face Manchester City in a highly anticipated Premier League clash on Sunday, fans and pundits alike are speculating on the predicted lineup for the Gunners. With injuries and doubts surrounding some key players, manager Mikel Arteta will have to make some crucial decisions to ensure his team can secure a positive result against the reigning champions.

PREDICTED ARSENAL LINEUP TO FACE MANCHESTER CITY

David Raya; Ben White, William Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Declan Rice, Martin Odegaard, Kai Havertz; Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Jesus, Leandro Trossard.

FORMATION: 4-3-3

In goal, it is expected that David Raya will retain his place between the sticks. The Spanish shot-stopper has been impressive since joining Arsenal and has proven himself as a reliable presence in goal.

In defense, Ben White is likely to start alongside William Saliba and Gabriel. This backline trio plus Zinchenko has shown promising signs of solidity and understanding in recent matches, and Arteta will be hoping they can continue their strong performances against a formidable Manchester City attack.

In midfield, Declan Rice is expected to anchor the team alongside Martin Odegaard and Kai Havertz. Rice’s defensive capabilities will be crucial in nullifying City’s attacking threats, while Odegaard and Havertz will provide creativity and support going forward.

The attacking trio is set to feature Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Jesus, and Leandro Trossard. Saka has been in scintillating form this season, consistently causing problems for opposition defenses with his pace and skill. Jesus will lead the line for Arsenal, aiming to find the back of the net against his former club. Trossard’s inclusion adds an element of unpredictability to Arsenal’s attack with his ability to create chances out of nothing.

However, there are a few injury concerns for Arteta heading into this crucial fixture. Gabriel Martinelli and Jurrien Timber are both ruled out due to knee injuries. Additionally, there are doubts surrounding Thomas Partey’s availability for the match.

Despite these setbacks, Arsenal currently sit in 3rd position on the Premier League table with 17 points, showcasing their strong start to the 2023/24 campaign. Their recent UEFA Champions League defeat against Lens will serve as motivation for the team to bounce back and put in a strong performance against Manchester City.

The clash at the Emirates Stadium promises to be an enthralling encounter between two top teams. Arsenal will be hoping to continue their positive momentum and secure a victory that would further solidify their position among the league’s elite.
