Manchester City are set to welcome back Sergio Aguero for the first time since he picked up an injury on the opening day of the season, although Samir Nasri will miss out against his former club with a hamstring injury. Mario Balotelli could be another to feature – subject to him buying some nicotine patches.
An ankle injury for Wojciech Szczesny means that Victor Manone will return between the sticks for the gunners. Tomas Rosicky and Bacary Sagna take up two more spots on Arsene Wenger’s sick list.
Arsenal appear to have found some decent form they have won all of their last three matches in all competitions, racking up some ten goals in the process courtesy of The Saints.
