The next Manchester City match is upon us! The Citizens welcome Arsenal to the Etihad, and Pep Guardiola doesn't have too many options available, and picking 18 players to be in uniform will be easier than usual because of so many important absences.

Here's the available players in the first team to face the Gunners:

Goalkeepers: Claudio Bravo, Willy Caballero, Angus Gunn

Defenders: John Stones, Nicolas Otamendi, Tosin Adarabioyo, Pablo Zabaleta, Bacary Sagna, Pablo Maffeo, Aleksandar Kolarov, Gaël Clichy, Angeliño Tasende

Midfielders: Fernando, Aleix García, Yaya Touré, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sané, Jesús Navas

Forwards: Nolito, Kelechi Iheanacho

Without Vincent Kompany, Fernandinho, Ilkay Gundogan, Sergio Agüero and Fabian Delph, Guardiola has some important absences and a big selection headache in midfield. Only Touré, Fernando and García are available for a deep midfield role, so it'll be interesting to see Pep's selections in that are of the pitch.


Projected starting lineup (4-2-3-1, right-left):

Bravo | Zabaleta, Stones, Otamendi, Kolarov | Fernando, Touré | Sterling, De Bruyne, Silva | Nolito

The match starts at 4pm BST (UK) / 11am ET, 8am PT (US) / 9:30pm IST (India), and you can join us to follow and comment all the action.
