Star Returns: Strongest 4-2-3-1 Arsenal Line-up To Face Manchester City

Arsenal, UEFA Champions League

Arsenal FC news:

The Premier League is back in town this weekend and it’s here again with some crunching games for teams all around the points table. The EPL race for the top-4 is certainly heating up and the top-6 teams in the competition cannot afford to drop points.

However, anything is bound to happen when Arsenal welcomes Manchester City at the Emirates for their second-leg clash in what would be a season-defining match for both sides in the race to qualification for the UEFA Champions League. Arsene Wenger’s side have been poor of late recently picking up just a couple of victories in their last 9 games in all competitions and a loss in this game can seriously dent their hope of a top-4 finish. Arsenal will be gearing up against Pep Guardiola’s side who are in decent form at the moment. It would be an interesting match and they cannot afford to settle for anything less than 3 points.

As far the Gunners teams news is concerned, manager Arsene Wenger will be without key playmaker Santi Cazorla for this game. Per reports, Mathieu Debuchy has fully recovered from his knee injury and set to be back in training but isn’t match fit yet. Kieran Gibbs and Gunners summer acquisition from Deportivo La Coruna Lucas Perez are doubtful for this crucial game while Petr Cech will remain biggest miss for the North Londoners. Mesut Ozil back on his feet and he played for Germany during the international break. The German should be ready to go.

Also, Alexis Sanchez has been effective for the Gunners as a false-9 this season but the French manager might push him to the wing where he can test Bacary Sagna.

This is how they would line up in their 4-2-3-1 formation system:
