ARS Vs MCI Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Two regressing sides square off in a bid to revive their horrid seasons.
For Manchester City, the 2019-20 instalment of the showpiece league is turning out to be a beleaguered time out in the middle. Far from easing the defect between themselves and Liverpool, the team have only further waned and wavered to find themselves 14 points behind Liverpool in third place.
And their derby defeat in the foregone gameweek perhaps was the perfect way to epitomes how dire the side have been this season. Defeated 2-1 by Manchester United, City looked all over the place in that encounter, a match in which they were all over the place defensively and drab in attack to fall down to their fourth defeat in the league.
Having registered just two wins in their last five outings, for City there are no margins for error from now till the end of the season if they are to have any chance of bridging the gap between themselves and Liverpool. And in Arsenal, they have the ideal opponents to imbue fresh life into their campaign, an opposition who City can easily fray if they are able to dole out the brand of football they are revered for.
Arsenal might have win 3-1 against West Ham the last time around but it was by no means a convincing win, one which was followed up by a 2-2 draw in the Europa League. This is a side which has no semblance at the back, a team having garnered up a mere 5 wins in 16 matches to sit slumped in 9th place.

ARS Vs MCI Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Arsenal’s player of the month for November, had it not been for Bernd Leno, the club would have found themselves sitting slumped in an even more horrendous position. The shot stopper has been a beacon of light in an otherwise last couple of months for the team, someone who is bound to parry away shots with ease today as well to see us rope him in for the day.
ARS Vs MCI Dream11 Defenders
While Arsenal’s plight defensively is well documented, this has been a season where City have been beleaguered defensively as well. With both of our opponents coming bearing no cohesion in their back lines, this is a match where a cleansheet is going to be the last likelihood, seeing us limit our side to bare minimum of three selections for the day.
And all of all picks are of the attacking kind as well, players who come bearing an ability to keep cantering down the park and peddle out support to their side’s attacking travails. It leads us to the duo of Nicholas Otamendi and Benjamin Mendy from Manchester City while the lone selection from the opposition comprises of Sead Kolasinac.
ARS Vs MCI Dream11 Midfielders
Manchester City’s player of the month for November, Kevin de Bruyne will himself be the first to say that it was by no means the kind of month associated with him. The midfielders came up with just two goals in six month, way off the boil like much of his team but come Arsenal, we envision him recovering his touch against a paper thin defence.
David Silva will be joining him for the clash along with CDM Rodrigo Hernandez whilst from Arsenal we are getting in Lucas Torreira. It took Ljungberg a good amount of time to understand that the CDM was Arsenal’s best player in the position but once he was accorded his chance against West Ham, Torreira showed exactly why he needs to be in the playing 11 every time.
ARS Vs MCI Dream11 Strikers
We had to begin this facet of our Dream 11 side with the selection of Arsenal’s goal scorer. In Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, the side have a name who has scored 11 times this season, someone who has looked the most lethal and formidable threat attacking wise in all of the side’s matches.
Gabriel Martinelli comes in to accompany him after scoring for Arsenal the last time around to lay down a marker with a pleasing to the eye display against West Ham. Elsewhere, with 6 goals in the league, Raheem Sterling comes in from City to bring an end to our picks for the contest.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kevin de Bruyne is entrusted with our captaincy while Sterling is our vice-captain.
