The Arsenal XI to beat Man City at the Etihad Stadium

Are the wheels coming off the Arsenal bandwagon? The North-Londoners have looked a shadow of themselves in recent weeks and defeat to Everton on Wednesday opened the gap between themselves and first place even further.

This Sunday, the Gunners are tasked with overcoming a Manchester City side that have lost just once at home since March and are clearly hurting following a poor run of results.

Despite this, the Gunners have an impressive record over their title rivals, having not suffered defeat to the Citizens since losing 6-3 at the Etihad Stadium in 2013.

Some of the Arsenal¬†supporters were critical of the team’s performance in midweek against Everton as failure to convert chances, added with the defensive frailties, meant they lost away from home for the first time this season.

Nonetheless, Arsene Wenger can inspire another Gunners victory over the Citizens to get their title bid back on track. But he must pick this starting XI to ensure all three points.
