Team News
Manchester City
Man City very nearly had a clean bill of health heading into their clash with Wolves, but Guardiola revealed that Phil Foden's absence was due to a foot problem, and it remains to be seen if the attacker can return to the matchday squad here.

The hosts are well-stocked otherwise and can be expected to name a strong starting XI given the lack of midweek action, with Haaland continuing to lead the line after rediscovering his golden touch.

Stefan Ortega will hope to continue in goal over Ederson, though, while Kyle Walker and Bernardo Silva should also have strong chances of coming back in after only making the bench against Wolves.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ortega; Walker, Dias, Akanji, Ake; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Haaland, Alvarez

As for Arsenal, former Man City striker Jesus will not take to the Etihad turf as he continues to recover from knee surgery, although he recently revealed that he expects to make his comeback in "four to five weeks".

Reiss Nelson (hamstring), Mohamed Elneny (knee) and Cedric Soares (muscle) make up the rest of Arsenal's injured quartet, although none of the trio would have been expected to start here, with Arteta also set to stick with his tried-and-tested formula.

Ben White was taken off at half time in the win over Man United, having been run ragged by Rashford, but he should hold his spot, while Leandro Trossard enjoyed a bright cameo on his debut at the weekend and could give Gabriel Martinelli - who has gone slightly off the boil recently - something to think about.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Turner; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Nketiah
Prediction: Manchester City 2-2 Arsenal
