It seems like Manchester City can’t lose at the moment, so it’s a good idea for them to face the last team to beat them this weekend to remind them that every team can lose, even Manchester City.
The last team to inflict defeat on Pep Guardiola and his men was Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final last April. Since then, it’s been seven months unbeaten for the Blues, and the Gunners come to the Etihad this weekend as giant underdogs looking to cause an upset. They definitely have the talent to do it, and if City aren’t at their very best they can definitely lose to Arsenal.
Pep has great respect for Arsene Wenger and has only one win in three games against the Frenchman since joining City, so he knows how difficult it is to beat Arsenal and how strong his lineup needs to be on Sunday.
And we want to know your lineup choice! Please fill out the attached form below with the 11 players you want to see starting against Arsenal, and which formation you think Pep should choose. Again, this is not your prediction, it’s your choice. We’ll share your decisions tomorrow in our Predicted Lineups article. You can check out how others have voted under the form.
