Team News

Both teams are grappling with injury concerns. City is closely monitoring the fitness of key players such as Kyle Walker, Kevin De Bruyne, Ederson, Manuel Akanji, and John Stones. While Guardiola boasts a strong lineup, potential absences could thin out the bench and introduce younger talents.

Arsenal awaits updates on Gabriel Martinelli’s fitness, with concerns lingering over Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Magalhaes following recent international duty withdrawals. Manager Mikel Arteta faces decisions in midfield and defense, with players like Jorginho, Thomas Partey, Leandro Trossard, Declan Rice, and Martin Odegaard vying for starting positions.

Historically, City has held the upper hand in head-to-head matchups, with 65 wins compared to Arsenal’s 100 victories, along with 45 draws. However, Arsenal managed to halt City’s eight-game winning streak earlier in the season, clinching the Community Shield via penalties and securing a late victory in the league.

Arsenal:
Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel Magalhaes, Zinchenko; Rice, Havertz, Odegaard; Trossard, Jesus, Saka.
