How Manchester City could line up against Arsenal

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has decisions to make when it comes to Kyle Walker, John Stones and Rodri for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Arsenal.

The trio were again absent against Brentford due to fitness concerns, and it is unclear whether head coach Pep Guardiola will recall any of the three players at the Emirates Stadium.

Nathan Ake impressed at left-back against Brentford and could continue in that area of the field, although a return for Walker would see Joao Cancelo switch to the opposite side.

Guardiola will make changes from the side that started on Wednesday, with Ilkay Gundogan, Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez all in line to start for the English champions this weekend.

Fernandinho could drop out of the midfield to allow Gundogan to feature alongside Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva, while Jack Grealish and Gabriel Jesus might drop out of the front three.

Phil Foden may be used as a false nine against the Gunners, with Sterling and Mahrez operating in the wide areas, but it would also not be a surprise to see Bernardo Silva feature slightly further forward.

Sterling has been linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium in recent months, but the Englishman has scored five times in his last four Premier League appearances.
