Arguably the toughest away league match remaining on Arsenal's fixture list, Manchester City come into today's match without a clean sheet in nearly a month, with last week's surprise draw at Everton seeing them fall a bit off the pace of the table-toppers, Chelsea. How they respond today to that draw, and other questionable defensive performances of late (the 2-2 draw to Burnley comes to mind), will be one of their biggest talking points today.
Arsenal have discovered a bit a form, which hasn't come unexpectedly since a few of their injured players have started to slowly regain fitness and rejoin the squad. It'll be interesting to see how Arsene Wenger fields his team, knowing Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott got minutes last week in the easy 3-0 victory over Stoke City.
And City's starters (because the Twitter lineup is in Vine form; someone other there just fell in love with Vine): Hart; Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Clichy; Fernando, Fernandinho, Navas, Silva, Milner; Aguero.
