Arsenal v Man City team news

Arsenal: Arteta hasn't been dealt a kind hand in terms of injuries this season. Thomas Partey, Gabriel Martinelli and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are all out through injury.

Granit Xhaka is suspended for the clash, Mesut Ozil and Sokratis are not in the squad, while Reiss Nelson has a knock that is likely to keep him out.

Man City: Barring a trio of defensive doubts, City are looking far fresher than they have done.

Only Gabriel Jesus joins Oleksander Zinchenko, Aymeric Laporte and Eric Garcia on the 'maybe' pile, with Sergio Aguero tipped to make his first start since October.

Our prediction: Arsenal v Man City

City have become a steely defensive unit, conceding just one goal and keeping seven clean sheets in their last eight matches across all competitions.

John Stones has played a large part of the improvements and is likely to start once more for City.

This robust defence, combined with the return of Aguero as a focal point could be the catalyst for a rise up the table for City. Arsenal are ragged at the moment, and they're not fancied to cause an upset here.

Our prediction: Arsenal 0-2 Man City
