Arsenal predicted lineup vs Man City today

Bukayo Saka

Arsenal can take a huge step towards a long-awaited Premier League title on Sunday as they host Manchester City, with a chance to move four points ahead of the reigning champions.

Mikel Arteta’s side are top of the table before this weekend’s Premier League action, but could easily be third by the end. Liverpool will face Brighton earlier in the day, and taking three points at the Etihad can never be counted on.

LB: Oleksandr Zinchenko – The Ukrainian is buoyed by helping his nation get to Euro 2024 under extremely tough circumstances, and now he will be keen to get one over on his old side and take a big step towards a Premier League winners’ medal with a different team.

CM: Martin Odegaard – One of the reasons that Martin Odegaard looks so good at the moment is that he has all the characteristics of a modern-day Man City player. His creativity and tight control will be central to any success Arsenal have at the Etihad.

CM: Jorginho – Given Kai Havertz will be used in a more advanced role, Arteta could seek the composure of Jorginho in the midfield to go with the combative energy of Declan Rice, Jorginho is having a superb second…
