Mikel Arteta takes on mentor Pep Guardiola as Arsenal face-off against Manchester City at the Etihad this evening.

The boss has decided to name Thomas Partey on the bench with Dani Ceballos starting alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield.

Kieran Tierney is available to start in defence alongside Gabriel and Rob Holding so David Luiz has to settle for a place among the substitutes.

Bukayo Saka starts on the left with Ainsley Maitland-Niles on the bench while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads the line up front with Nicolas Pepe and Willian offering support.

That means Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah must settle for places on the bench this afternoon.

These are the teams for the game:

Man City

Ederson, Walker, Dias, Ake, Cancelo, Silva, Rodri, Foden, Mahrez, Sterling, Aguero

Subs: Stones, Gundogan, Steffen, Torres, Fernandinho, Delap, Garcia


Leno, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney, Bellerin, Saka, Xhaka, Ceballos , Willian, Pepe, Aubameyang

Subs: Thomas Partey, Lacazette, Runarsson, Maitland-Niles, Luiz, Elneny, Nketiah
