Manchester City registered their first Premier League home win in almost three months on Wednesday with a 2-0 victory over Watford. It was still unconvincing at times but the the three points kept City in the top four ahead of today’s important match. And the Blues must improve if they’re to avoid losing another big game today, with Arsenal the visitors.
The Gunners lost their first away game in the league since February in midweek when they were beaten by Everton, and will hope for at least a repeat of their 2-2 draw at the Etihad back in May.
Today’s referee is the vastly experienced Martin Atkinson, and here are the teams that Pep Guardiola and Arsène Wenger have selected.
Manchester City XI: Bravo, Kolarov, Zabaleta, Otamendi, Clichy, Fernando, Sterling, De Bruyne, Sané, Silva, Toure
Arsenal XI: Cech, Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Xhaka, Walcott, Özil, Iwobi, Sanchez
Today’s match can be viewed on Sky Sports 1 in the UK. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.
