Attack – Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang
Bukayo Saka’s importance to the side could mean he is rested from the start, as he will be one of the first names on the team sheet on Thursday.
That means Nicolas Pepe could be given a chance from the start.
Alexandre Lacazette has not started either of the last two matches but could come into the middle of the attack.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a hat-trick in his last Premier League appearance and will be crucial in the hosts’ chances of stopping City’s winning run.
Expected Arsenal XI vs Man City in full: Leno; Cedric, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Elneny, Xhaka; Pepe, Odegaard, Aubameyang; Lacazette.
