Man City Vs Arsenal: Predicted lineups of Manchester City Vs Arsenal as both teams set to face each other in the Premier League on Friday.
Manchester City is set to face Arsenal in the Premier League as the Premier League is about to get restarted and both the sides will meet each other at the Etihad stadium in the 3oth game-week of the league.
Mikel Arteta would be returning to his former club, where he worked as a deputy to his compatriot Pep Guardiola. Manchester City has technically lost the league but still have to defend their 2nd position in the table.
Meanwhile, Arsenal’s chances to enter into the top-4 are low, as they currently sit at the 9th position with a gap of points from that position. But, surely it is a big clash considering the stature of both clubs.
Moreover, Arsenal does not want to miss their chances for Europa League too by slipping further down in the table. In the reverse fixture played at the Emirates this season, Manchester City absolutely bossed the Gunners.
A magnificent performance by Kevin De Bruyne propelled the Citizens to seal 3 points from that game-week. The away fixture for Arsenal will be even difficult for Arsenal.
However, this point can be disproved, without the spectators, the home advantage has faced a setback, as already seen in Bundesliga. On the other hand, we don’t know what will be Guardiola’s plans ahead of the match.
Because on Tuesday, Manchester City will be facing Burnley and we can expect some rotation by the Spaniard to maintain the fitness of his players amidst the congestion of fixtures.
Therefore we will try to list down the predicted lineup for both sides ahead of the fixture.

Manchester City – Ederson; Walker, Fernandinho, Laporte, Mendy; De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan; Mahrez, Aguero, Sterling
