ARS Vs MCI Fantasy Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Stuttering Arsenal turn to the Carabao Cup to restore semblance in their season.
Things are fast taking an ugly turn for Arsenal. The club’s 2-1 defeat to Everton at the weekend was the side’s fourth defeat in its last five encounters, results which continue to leave Arsenal agonisingly placed in 15th spot.
The side’s season is going from bad to worse but many labelling Arsenal as serious relegation contenders at the moment. Nothing is clicking for the side with players having clearly downed tools as Arteta’s gameplan fails to rub off on his squad.
For Arteta, today’s encounter is more than just about restoring lost pride and stablishing a fast sinking ship. He’s up against his old employers and with him having fared off reasonably well in domestic competitions, a win today could end up acting as the catalyst of Arsenal’s revival.
ARS Vs MCI Fantasy Probable Winner
Unfortunately for Arsenal though, no matter how much we try, he just cant craft a scenario where they win. They are up against a City side who loves this tournament, a side which will ease past Arsenal to keep alive its aspirations of winning a fourth successive title.

Fantasy Team Picks
Arsenal’s Bernd Leno is going to be overworked but he’s revered for his gallantry, one which sees us opt for him today.
He finds company in the returning Gabriel Magalhaes who’ll be eager to make amends for his red card performance last week.
City on the other hand will see us opt for an entire trivalent of picks. The side’s cleansheet against Southampton at the weekend was a testament to their defensive solidarity this season.
Where City are giving side’s cold feet with their defending, Arsenal just can’t buy themselves a goal at the moment. A cleansheet looks imminent for City to see us opt for Ruben Dias, Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker from the club.
Taking his tally to 100 assists after assisting City’s only goal against Southampton, Kevin de Bruyne as ever makes his way into our team. The side’s top scorer, Riyadh Mahrez will also be a part of our side along with Ilkay Gundogan who is more than capable of coming up with a peach of a strike.
Bukayo Saka continues to wage a lone battle for Arsenal as he effortlessly makes his presence felt all across the park. Dani Ceballos’ ability to
Raheem Sterling’s goal at the weekend sees him complete our set of picks for the outing.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kevin’s two goals and 7 assists see him be our captain while Dias is the vice-captain.
Leno, Mendy, Gabriel, Walker, Dias, Saka, Dani, Ilkay, Kevin, Riyadh, Raheem
