Arsenal travelled to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon to face Manchester City. It's not quite a must-win for City, but it's close. 'City have to play the final of the Carabao Cup, which will postpone a game. There could be a late fitness test for the youngster, and if he doesn't feature, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Carl Jenkinson are options. Granit Xhaka should return in place of Mohamed Eleny, who was substituted at half-time in midweek.

That would be problematic against any opposition, but against Manchester City it could be fatal. I think in his career he's doing the best in all the coaches in the world.

"The first captain is Laurent Koscielny, he had injuries and couldn't play. Because at the moment you feel if you can keep [Alexandre] Lacazette or [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang quiet, then I'm not sure where our goals are coming from".

At the time of writing, the 30-year-old continues to rack up the record with his 10th hat-trick in the division putting him just one behind Shearer in that respect, but there is one crucial stat which puts him clear of the rest.

William Gallas says Arsenal need to approach Sunday's clash at The Etihad like Liverpool FC did in their Champions League victory over Manchester City last season to have any chance of winning.

Aguero loves playing against Arsenal and that's showing no signs of changing.

The young German star has had the good fortune of tormenting Arsenal since he joined Manchester City.

"I have analysed a lot of teams and coaches and I think it's hard to find one coach who is better than Guardiola", Emery said.

That result, a 2-0 victory for the Gunners, was the effect of Arsenal showing a resilience they rarely displayed in the latter stages of Wenger's reign. Having scored 14 goals already this season in spite of his absences, Son could - and probably should - soon be forcing his way into player-of-the-year contention.

Arsenal have shown massive improvement since their 2-0 loss on opening day against Manchester City at the Emirates.

His first taste of senior football came under current Arsenal boss Unai Emery with Sevilla.

Perhaps surprisingly, Laporte got forward more often than Walker; Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne were responsible for most of the attacking work down the right.
