Possible Lineups & Preview: Man City vs Arsenal

EPLArsenal visit the Etihad Stadium on Saturday 6 points ahead of 2012 premier league Champions Manchester City.
However, with Citizens prolific home form, the sky blues should be considered favorites.
Arsenal only needed a point from their last Champions League game against Napoli to top the group. However, they suffered defeat at the hands of Rafa Benitez’s Napoli and Dortmund secured top spot by beating Marseille.
City on the other hand turned around a 2 goal deficit against the mighty Bayern Munich to end their long winning streak in the Champions league.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men dominated the European Champions, deserved their win and should be considered as major contenders for the Champions league this season.
More amazing fact is that City defeated Bayern without their three key stars, captain Kompany, top scorer Aguero and the engine Yaya Toure.
Expect the trio to be back for Arsenal game to further improve their quality.
Arsenal went for more defensive approach with Napoli as they rested Ramsey and Wilshere to play Flamini and Arteta in the central midfield and Rosicky came in as well.
Expect the Britishers to return and it is still unlikely that Walcott will have a starting place against City.
Arsenal will have to step up big time against the Citizens who are rampant at the Etihad Stadium and will look to close the gap to 3 points.
Here are the Possible Lineups.

    Walcott is better than giroud,bt i know mr wenger u dont want to hear this..giroud is gd in game like stock where headers and buling is needed most..if walcnt was in he could have made a gd difference.

  2. peter tosh says:

    Arteta should always come as flamini backup unless injuries very slow indeed

  3. peter tosh says:

    With walcott as a CF and ozil behind him it would be total distruction unless the game requres buling and jumping,bt for me 90% of ucl walcott should strike as cf and epl 70%
