Arsenal have arrived at the Etihad Stadium as they prepare to take on Pep Guardiola’s unbeaten, table-topping Manchester City.
As expected Arsene Wenger has rotated his squad after making wholesale changes for Tuesday’s Europa League game with Red Star Belgrade. What was less expected is the change to the formation – we’re back to four at the back – in part down to our lack of fit central defenders.
Alex Lacazette also drops to the bench to make room for Alex Iwobi. It’s certainly a line-up with one eye on City’s remarkable scoring record this campaign.
Here are today’s official line ups.
Arsenal: Cech, Bellerin, Koscielny, Monreal, Kolasinac, Coquelin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Ozil, Iwobi, Alexis
Subs: Macey, Debuchy, Elneny, Wilshere, Walcott, Lacazette, Giroud
City: Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Stones, Delph, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, D Silva, Sterling, Sane, Aguero
Subs: Bravo, Mangala, Gundogan, Bernardo, G Jesus, Danilo, Yaya Toure
