Arsenal vs Man City predicted line-ups: Confirmed team news ahead of Carabao Cup fixture


Arsenal are hosting Manchester City at the Emirates tonight hoping to progress to the Carabao Cup semi-finals.

The Gunners are in a slump in the league but can give their manger Mikel Arteta a much-needed boost with victory here.

But there will be little respite if they can’t find a result here against a Manchester City side who are slowly finding some form.

City have put together a series of clean sheets and are the meanest defence in the top flight, while Arsenal’s goals-scored tally of 12 is the worst outside the bottom three. 

On the other side of the spectrum, Pep Guardiola’s team have a phenomenal record in this competition and are aiming to win it for a fourth consecutive year, having not been eliminated from it for a frankly ridiculous 1,518 days. They will be hoping to extend that even further tonight as they bid to stay on track for the first silverware of the season.
