Manchester city kick start their football season which was temporary stopped due to covid-19, this Wednesday. It is an enticing clash with Arsenal who are presently been managed by former Manchester City assistant Coach, Mikel Arteta.

If previous results is anything to go by, Manchester City are poised to grab all 3 points in a campaign that has not seen the best of the city boys. Arsenal current records away from home doesn’t help boost their chances. Manchester City still trailing liverpool by a massive 25 points, have a lot of catching up to do. it’s just a question of wrapping up the 2nd position and ensuring a decent finish to the season.

One thing that would delight Pep Guardiola as Arsenal comes calling, is the availability of all squad players for selection. Leroy Sane, whose future is still hanging in the balance has recovered from the injury that has kept him from the side all season. Defender, Aymeric Larporte and Benjamin Mendy are also confirmed fit.

For Arsenal, they would be at full strength as most of their injured players are rearing to go. The only long term absentee would be defender Calum chambers.
Considering the new rules of allowing 5 substitutes per match, we are likely to see a packed bench from both sides,even as fans would not be allowed at the Etihad.
