Terrible news for Arsenal 'The Gunners' before Manchester City Clash

One of the standout matches in the Premier League this weekend sees Man City host Arsenal on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola’s side have begun the campaign in phenomenal fashion. Everton are the only side to have prevented the Sky Blues from winning a match this season.

Arsene Wenger’s charges were slammed following the 2-1 defeat away at Watford. But the Gunners have reacted well with four wins on the spin.

Before the Man City game comes around, Arsenal take on Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Arsene Wenger will be hoping his players get through that game without any problems, as he’s already got serious defensive headaches to handle.

Last weekend, in a 2-1 win over Swansea, Sead Kolasinac limped out of the game in the second half.

According to the London Evening Standard, while doubts still surround Kolasinac’s complete fitness, the defender should be available for the Man City game.

But there’s also bad news, as “Shkodran Mustafi unlikely to be fit for Sunday’s Premier League trip to Manchester City.”

The German centre-half is sidelined with a groin injury.

At the same time, Laurent Koscielny remains constantly dogged by chronic Achilles problems, although the French international should also be fit for the City match.

So who could start in Arsenal’s defence at the Etihad?

One option is for Per Mertesacker to play. The Standard also float the idea that “Rob Holding is another option while Mohamed Elneny played as a makeshift centre-back in Belgrade and against Norwich.”

Great Goals
