Fixture: Manchester City vs Arsenal
Competition: Premier League
Kick-off: 16:00 (UK time)
Manchester City have named their starting eleven and substitutes to play host to Arsenal in a Premier League fixture at the Etihad Stadium today.
Pep Guardiola's side have lost two of their last three Premier League games and sit in fourth spot in the standings, with Manchester United having moved to within three points of their rivals following a win at West Brom on Saturday.
Beating Arsenal would move Manchester City up to second spot in the league standings, even if only temporarily, and to get the job done Guardiola chooses to play without a recognised striker, with Kevin De Bruyne the most advanced player. David Silva, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Yaya Toure are all also selected, while Fernando aims to protect the back four. Aleksandar Kolarov and Nicolas Otamendi are the central defensive pairing.
From the bench, Guardiola can bring on Nolito if he needs to add a further attacking edge, while Jesus Navas offers width. John Stones is also amongst the substitutes.
