Man City vs Arsenal: The Reigning Champions Could Miss Key Players against the Gunners

Man City vs Arsenal is one of the most important fixtures of the 2023-2024 Premier League season. The match holds the key in terms of the title race for this season’s top-flight English league. A win for City could help them in taking a lead over Arsenal in terms of points. On the contrary, a victory for the Gunners will increase the gap between them and City to four points.

Manchester City vs Arsenal: City’s injury worries

Man City’s defenders Kyle Walker and John Stones could find themselves sidelined for the match against Arsenal on the weekend. While Walker suffered from a hamstring blow, Stones left the field just after ten minutes of England’s friendly match against Belgium. He reportedly had an issue in his right leg.

Kevin De Bruyne and goalkeeper Ederson’s participation in the all-important fixture against the Gunners remains in doubt. However, a rather salvaging report for the City fans would be that Erling Haaland is likely to play in the Man City vs Arsenal clash. Reports suggest, there are no major injury worries with him after he was spotted limping off in one of Norway’s training regimes.

Erling Haaland will be a go-through man for Pep Guardiola when his Man City will come up against Arsenal at Etihad on March 31. The Norweigan holds the capability to turn a game on his head with his goal-scoring prowess. Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal would be wary of the danger that the City’s striker possesses.

In his 23 appearances for City in the 2023-2024 Premier League season so far, the 23-year-old has notched up a magnificent tally of 18 goals and five assists. However, he has been guilty of missing some rather easy chances for City in front of the goal lately. But, he would be looking to step up for his team in a title-defining clash against Arsenal.
