See Why Unai Emery must start Mesut Ozil against Manchester City

See Why Unai Emery must start Mesut Ozil against Manchester City

Sergio Aguero has a fine record against the Gunners and will make well-timed bursts into the channels, while on the flanks Pep Guardiola is likely to select the combination of Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling. It took him nearly double the time to score here, 46 seconds, as it did at Newcastle, 24 seconds. The Argentina global was in the right place at the right time firstly to head Aymeric Laporte's first-minute cross past keeper Bernd Leno and then to strike from close range after Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling had combined superbly before completing his 10th Premier League treble by bundling home with a hint of handball.

Another Sane show against Arsenal? When it comes to the top five teams, the Gunners have given up nine goals more than anyone else. In fairness to the Londoners, no opponent is safe against Aguero.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his 25th Premier League goal in Arsenal's last match against Cardiff, reaching that number faster than any other Gunners' player in the competition's history (37 games).

It's hat trick number 14 in his Manchester City career, his second one this season. It's not quite a must-win for City, but it's close. That is what we tried previous year.

Arsenal, one of the six, can be categorized as the latter. The long-serving Frenchman was often accused of failing to prepare for the opposition properly in games of this ilk.

As shown in the video below, the England worldwide and Nicolas Otamendi exchanged six passes under no pressure at all before finally being closed down by Alexandre Lacazette.

As quoted by the Express, Emery stated: "It's no change for him [Ozil]".

"Managers are sitting watching our games on TV and when they see how good we are, that is the best pressure". The Arsenal boss went with neither, instead selecting Alex Iwobi to support the two strikers.

Harry Kane is lagging way behind Aguero with 21 goals against the five other rivals in the league albeit having played less matches, and next it is Wayne Rooney who perhaps surprisingly "only" has 20 goals to his name in the biggest matches.

Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of the Sky Blues' vital clash with fellow top six side Arsenal on Sunday, Belgium global De Bruyne says that he feels City are below the standards they set past year - and that if Liverpool depose them as title-holders, they will be worthy champions. Ramsey is on his way to Juventus having reportedly signed a pre-contract agreement with the Italian champions, while Ozil's inconsistency makes it hard to pick him in big matches.
