Kolasinac to Start? Arsenal’s Predicted XI v Man City

By Joel Turner IN General,Lineup,Premier League - 09:10 Nov 5th 2017

Arsenal face a stern test against Premier League high-fliers Man City at the Etihad this afternoon,

Pep Guardiola’s side are unbeaten in ten games and lead cross-city rivals Man United by five points.

This week they also qualified for the Last 16 of the Champions League with two games to spare, which means their focus will return to Premier League action.

The Gunners, in contrast, are nine points behind City but have won four of their last five league games.

Sead Kolasinac is likely to have overcome a hip injury and should be eligible to start.

Shkodran Mustafi and Danny Welbeck are both still out but should return after the international break. David Ospina remains unavailable with a groin injury.

Calum Chambers is available but Wenger will likely start with Per Mertesacker, Nacho Monreal and Laurent Koscielny in a three-man defence.

Arsenal fans will undoubtedly get to see Alexandre Lacazette, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez playing together again as manager Arsene Wenger looks to pick his strongest side for the team’s sternest test so far this term.
