As we prepare for arguably the star match of the weekend, Manchester City Vs Arsenal, certain personnel has got their cards to play to perfection.
This is in the exception of the tactical enumerations to be made in this match with regards to the two managers: Unai Emery and Pep Guardiola.
With the epic Manchester City Vs Arsenal battle looming, coupled with the fact that City are down following their defeat against Newcastle United, this match could go either way as both the teams compete on the Etihad turf come Sunday.
This will also see the inform Arsenal, who beat Cardiff City 2-1 in midweek, standing a chance against the Citizens as we take a look at the probable Arsenal players who could haunt City’s title ambitions. Liverpool would need a favour from Arsenal in this game as they (Reds) dropped points in the midweek fixture against Leicester City.
On this note, we take a look at Gunners stars who can take the match to the Citizens in the Manchester City Vs Arsenal clash at the Etihad Stadium.
The Swiss star would be a prime candidate to be aware off at the Etihad as the Citizens proffers the strategy to stifle out the three points from Unai Emery’s wards.
This promises to be a huge task for the City folks as Xhaka’s vision and long range shots will be called upon even when he breaks up City’s attacking play in transition.
Granit Xhaka must be at his best as he will be facing some of the best midfielders in the Premier League come this Sunday at the Etihad.
The Welsh man could prove to be very decisive as he’s been this season especially during the absence of star play-maker Mesut Ozil. Can he make things happen on the pitch for Unai Emery’s Arsenal against the rampaging Citizens?
Only time will tell on his impact but, he’s got the immense strategy needed to lift his side’s fortunes just like he did early in the season scoring a hat-trick in the 5-1 demolition of Fulham at Craven Cottage.
That’s why he is still at Arsenal at the moment ahead of the Manchester City Vs Arsenal match despite transfer talks concerning his future at the Emirates Stadium.
There isn’t much to say about the player as we have seen his performances in the Arsenal shirt this season.

However, his Arsenal teammates must pay the price with superb supporting performances for him to flourish. This may not be just an Auba-Miki combo as the case has been this term.
The likes of Ozil, Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan must aid in the process as Aubameyang has got enough venom and class to sting City with goals as we look forward to the Manchester City Vs Arsenal fixture this weekend.
