Manchester City-Arsenal, the probable formations

Manchester City and Arsenal play a big chunk of the Premier League in the match valid for the 33rd day of the English league. Kickoff at 9 p.m. at Etihad Stadium. The Citizens, -5 behind the Gunners but with two games to spare, with a win would reopen title talk that seemed archived until recently. Arteta’s men will be looking to return home with some valuable points from Manchester, fending off a comeback attempt by Haaland and co.

Guardiola relies on Haaland in the center of the attack, supported by a poker of trequartists: Mahrez and Grealish on the outsides, Gundogan and De Bruyne in the middle. Arteta responds with former Gabriel Jesus in attack, supported by the Saka-Odegaard-Martinelli trident in the three-quarter.

Likely lineups.

MANCHESTER CITY (3-2-4-1): Ederson; Akanji, Dias, Laporte; Stones, Rodri; Mahrez, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Grealish; Haaland. All. Guardiola.

ARSENAL (4-3-3): Ramsdale; White, Holding, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus. All. Arteta.
