ARSENAL (4-2-3-1)

Unai Emery mixed formations during the preseason, playing 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1 more regularly, but with the city's terrifying attack, Emery can opt for a more defensive-minded setup.

Petr Cech and the new signing of Bernd Leno were delivered in the preseason, but it is expected that Emery will start the last one after having brought him 20 million pounds sterling from Bayer Leverkusen. The Spaniard will look to give the German goalkeeper his confidence from the beginning.

Despite the arrival of Stephan Lichtsteiner, it is likely that Héctor Bellerin starts on the right side due to his experience playing in the Arsenal baseline and his pace to deal with the ends of the City.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi are the safe option to start next to each other at the heart of the defense. With only the young Rob Holding and Konstantinos Mavropanos in the additional supply, Emery will want experience and leadership in the back.

Due to the injuries of Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal, a great doubt, Ainsley Maitland-Niles will be in charge of dealing with the attacks of the city on the left. While not his natural position, the young Englishman impressed despite playing his times under Wenger last season.

Moving to midfield, it is likely that Emery will use two midfielders sitting in front of the four sides. Lucas Torreira can be given his debut at Arsenal in the Premier League, with Granit Xhaka also helping to provide a defensive shield against a City team capable of riot.

Aaron Ramsey enters the game as a doubt also with a calf injury, but he is back training and would be a great addition to the team. The Welshman, deploying the central position of the three media, can offer his always reliable careers behind the defense, knowing that Xhaka and Torreira are covering him.

Arsenal will trust that they can damage the defense of the City, especially those who return from World Cup commitments. Henrikh Mkhitaryan will start to the right of the three and will use his clever tricks and passes to unlock Guardiola's defensive line.

Mesut Ozil will start on the left and can be exchanged with Mkhitaryan. With these two on the team, Arsenal have creativity in abundance, especially with their strikers making runs behind the City defense.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will lead the line for the Gunners, with Alexandre Lacazette a very useful tool for the banking team.

With the rhythm of Aubameyang and his deadly shot against the goal, he can cause a defense in the city, full of players who have just returned from the World Cup, with many problems.
