Man City vs Arsenal predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Premier League fixture tonight


Manchester City welcome Arsenal to the Etihad on Wednesday evening as the Premier League finally returns.

Pep Guardiola’s side trail champions-elect Liverpool by 25 points heading into the fixture, with their Champions League place for next season now in the hands of the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

It was Mikel Arteta’s positive coronavirus test that triggered the top flight’s suspension back in March just as Arsenal had begun to recapture form under their new manager, with four wins from their last five matches.

However, with the club currently languishing in the ninth, it will be an uphill struggle to secure a Europa League spot that could prove crucial to the club’s capabilities in the transfer market later this summer.
