Bernd Leno might have resulted in Arsenal’s ouster from the Europa League but those mistakes don’t take away any credit from his Premier League showings this season. The player has been Arsenal’s finest defensive player, a name who has solely taken all responsibility upon himself to quash sides from scoring.
Although they have been rattled defensively this season, a peril which has resulted in Manchester City losing out on the trophy to Liverpool, our trio from the side will only comprise of players from the home side. Bolstered by the return of Laporte, the side is bound to be rejuvenated as they look to emulate their 3-0 showing from the last time these two sides met.
We’ll be moving in for the fullback pairing of Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker with City’s system allowing the fullbacks to express themselves freely with CB Fernandinho completing the set of picks.
The last time these two teams had taken on each other, Kevin de Bruyne had ended up making a mockery of Arsenal. He nonchalantly raked up the goals and assists on the day to extend City’s record to 6 successive wins against Arsenal.
With a staggering 16 goals, he’ll be the first player to be inducted into our ambit with CDM Rodrigo coming in to partner him up owing to his ability to pop up with the goals as well. With 8 assists this season, we have Riyad Mahrez join up as we opt for yet another trio from the home side.
Elsewhere, Arsenal will be represented by four-goals and six assist man Pepe who was starting to settle into is groove before the hiatus with Granit Xhaka being brought in alongside him.
Playing in his home stadium infront of a wavering and regressing defence meant Sergio Aguero was always going to be an instant pick for us. He’s up against a horrid defence, one which will allow him to add to his 16 goal tally this season.
Arsenal’s leading scorer meanwhile will represent the visitors with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang making for a must have given his 17 goals.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His 16 goals will see Aguero captain our side for today while Kevin de Bruyne is the vice-captain.
