Manchester City, were back to their winning ways midweek with a victory over Dinamo Zagreb in Champions League group play.

Arsenal, having already qualified for the knockout stage, were held to a 2-2 against Standard Liege in the Europa League.

Last time, of course who could forget Sergio Aguero’s hat trick performance. His 14th hat-trick for the club earned Manchester City a 3-1 win over Arsenal at the start of February.

Both teams coming with wins should make should make for a fun game.

Team News

John Stones (hamstring) and Sergio Aguero (muscular) will both miss the game, while Pep Guardiola is unsure whether David Silva will recover in time from the injury he picked up against Manchester United.

Long term absentees Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane remain sidelined.

One To Watch

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been a regular for Freddie’s new side this season and has been in solid form, with 11 goals this season. City’s defence will have their work cut out if they are to stop him on Sunday.

Prediction

Manchester City 3-2 Arsenal
