Charlie Nicholas' share before the Premier League clash
Manchester City have dropped off. At one stage after 30 minutes (in the Manchester derby defeat), I was looking at Pep Guardiola prowling on the touchline. You can refer to the europa league predictions shared with us!
Every time he takes Kevin de Bruyne out, he seems lớn lose 25 per cent of performance. I know he is unbelievably good, but this is a team of real talent.
Raheem Sterling has hit a brick wall, while Sergio Aguero has been getting some goals but he has not been playing well. Bernardo Silva looks lost, and the full backs have been left out as he is getting soccer daily tips nothing from them.
Arsenal are vulnerable. He has lớn go with Pablo Mari and Sokratis Papastathopoulos but it was another clean sheet nevertheless in the weekend win over West ham mê.
Mikel Arteta has to concentrate on keeping the back door locked. He will go with a back five with two protecting in midfield. Alexandre Lacazette will remain out of the starting XI and he will put Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang through the middle.
Gabriel Martinelli and Nicolas Pepe may come in lớn play wider, but I think City will turn up and beat Arsenal, as they are too frail at the back.
Man City are handpicking the Champions League, it seems, and have their eyes set on winning that, but Arsenal cannot make it an open game otherwise City will pick them off.
If De Bruyne plays (latest on him here), I think City could win comfortably, but I hope he is rested again!
