After another swashbuckling performance in Naples during the week, Manchester City’s focus returns to the Premier League and the always tricky task of facing Arsenal.
City have struggled for wins in any competition against Arsene Wenger’s side in recent years, with last December’s home fixture their only victory over the Gunners since 2013. The hope will be a repeat of last year’s win over the most recent team to have beaten City in a competitive fixture (the FA Cup semi final in April).
Michael Oliver is the referee this afternoon and here are the teams selected by Guardiola and Wenger:
Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Stones, Delph, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Silva (c), Sterling, Sane, Aguero
Arsenal XI: Cech, Bellerin, Monreal, Koscielny, Kolasinac, Coquelin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Ozil, Sanchez, Iwobi
The match can be viewed on Sky Sports Premier League in the UK. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.
