So here we are, the kick off is not very far away now and we know the Arsenal line up.


The Nacho man keeps his place at left back even with the return of Kieran Gibbs. He deserves it as he has looked very sharp in recent weeks, as the player himself said; having a run in the team has helped him and his form. As expected Debuchy, Koscielny and Mertesacker make up the rest of the back four with Szczesny in between the sticks.


Mikel Arteta is only fit enough for the bench so that is a little disappointing. It's a big job for Flamini today.

Rambo has recovered from ankle knack and comes back into the team. Even a Rambo below his best is still vitally important due to his goalscoring threat and also his defensive contribution. City know they will have to watch his late runs and that is a good thing.


Danny boy starts as centre forward and will have Alexis and Özil either side of him. It looks like the 4-1-4-1 is here to stay boys and girls.

Here is hoping we repeat the performance (and result) when the last time these two sides played.

Confirmed Line Up:

Bench: Ospina, Gibbs, Chambers, Arteta, Chamberlain, Cazorla, Podolski
