Manchester City vs. Arsenal

Manchester City vs. Arsenal

The acquisition of Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla have added an extra layer of optimism and excitement around Arsenal these days, so much so even the usually anti-Arsenal media are talking us up as title contenders (which I don`t much like to be frank).

However today marks the biggest test of the season so far as we travel to current English Champions, Manchester City.

After a goalless start to the season we`ve finally found our shooting boots, scoring 10 goals in our last 4 games, conceding only 2.

Manchester City will undoubtedly be a very different opposition than we have face so far, though their defence has yet to keep a clean sheet this season.

I won`t be around to post the team selections later so I`ll take a stab at guessing who Mr Wenger will choose to keep us on our winning run.

Mannone
Jenkinson
BFG
Captain Vermaelen
Gibbs
Arteta
Diaby
Cazorla
Podolski
Gervinho
The Ox

With all the talk of Arsenal's tight defence, City's lack of clean sheets and the obvious attacking prowess of both teams, what's the reckoning we end up with a 0-0 draw? :/

Koscielny starts in place of Thomas Vermaelen, who is out with the Flu. Surprised, though, with the inclusion of Ramsey in place of Giroud who is on the bench. It would seem the Manager is looking to keep things tight instead of our usual gong ho approach to such games. Well, good luck lads.

We've started well, stable, keeping control and playing confidently. But the fireworks are yet to begin.

Sagna is going to have his work cut out for him trying to get back his RB shirt. Jenkinson is playing so well and linking up well with the attack.

Gervinho's poor touch looking costly now.
