PREM: Arsenal v Manchester City preview


Arsenal v Manchester City preview

Arsenal will be without first-choice goalkeeper Petr Cech for the visit of Premier League rivals Manchester City on Sunday


The former Czech Republic international was forced off with a calf injury during the 3-1 loss at West Brom before the international break and has not recovered in time to face City so David Ospina will deputise.

Forward Lucas Perez (thigh) has also been ruled out but both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez should start having represented their countries in the past week, while Santi Cazorla (Achilles) will not play again this season.

Manchester City forwards Kevin De Bruyne (groin) and Raheem Sterling (back) are both in contention for Sunday's Premier League trip to Arsenal.

The pair were doubtful after picking up injuries on international duty but, while not 100 per cent fit, are hopeful of featuring.

Defender Pablo Zabaleta has also overcome a knock suffered while with Argentina but striker Gabriel Jesus (foot) - who is making good progress - and midfielder Ilkay Gundogan (knee) remain on the sidelines.

Arsenal (from): Ospina, Martinez, Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal, Gibbs, Maitland-Niles, Coquelin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Walcott, Reine-Adelaide, Iwobi, Sanchez, Giroud, Welbeck.

Man City (from): Caballero, Bravo, Sagna, Zabaleta, Kompany, Otamendi, Stones, Clichy, Kolarov, Fernando, Fernandinho, Toure, Delph, Sane, Sterling, Silva, Navas, De Bruyne, Nolito, Aguero, Iheanacho.
