John Stones, Kyle Walker

Manchester City host Arsenal on Gameweek 30 of the 2023/24 Premier League season which promises to be a thrilling contest with big ramifications on the title race.

The current champions come up against the current leaders, with Liverpool watching on very closely after their match against Brighton earlier in the day. Any of those three teams could be top of the table come the end of Sunday’s action.

The build-up to the game has been dominated by injuries to important Man City players, with the international break proving to be very costly for the Cityzens. That puts the pressure back on Arsenal to beat a weakened City team and take real charge of the title race.

Man City predicted lineup vs Arsenal (4-3-3): Ederson; Lewis, Dias, Akanji, Ake; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Foden, Haaland, Doku.
