Manchester City will be aiming to stretch their lead at the top of the Premier League table when they take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium this evening.
After a three-game run without a win in the league, the Gunners bounced back with the 4-2 thrashing of Leeds United last week, which put them in tenth place in the standings.
However, Mikel Arteta and his men weren’t able to build on that victory in midweek as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Benfica in the UEFA Europa League.
They will be hoping to get back to winning ways come this evening. Pep Guardiola’s side, meanwhile, are running away with the Premier League title.
The 3-1 win over Everton in midweek in the Premier League meant City have now opened up a ten-point lead over second-placed Manchester United and are currently on a seventeen-game winning streak across all competitions.
They will be looking to extend that run and bag three more points at the Emirates.
Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno, Bellerin, Luiz, Santos, Tierney, Elneny, Xhaka, Saka, Rowe, Pepe, Aubameyang
Man City XI (4-3-3): Moraes, Walker, Dias, Stones, Zinchenko, Bruyne, Hernandez, Silva, Mahrez, Foden, Sterling
Kick off is at 17:30 (GMT +1).
