Martin Keown has called on Arsene Wenger to make these changes 2

Posted on November 06, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Former-Arsenal defender Martin Keown has urged manager Arsene Wenger to utilise Jack Wilshere and Alexandre Laczaette following the team’s 3-1 defeat at the hands of Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Arsenal could not achieve the seemingly impossible on Sunday as they fell to Manchester City. The Premier League leaders were once again in top form creatively, but Arsenal were spared a hammering as Pep Guardiola’s men were uncharacteristically poor in front of goal.

Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus scored the goals for City, and Arsenal could only reply via a drilled effort from Alexandre Lacazette. While the defeat was hardly an embarrassing one, it leaves the Gunners teetering on the edge of yet another season without a Premier League title.

Arsenal travel to face Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday as Arsene Wenger renews his rivalry with Pep Guardiola.

Arsenal have been in far better form of late following a disappointing 2-1 loss at the hands of Watford. Since then they have gone unbeaten in the Premier League, Europa League and Carabao Cup.

Despite a 0-0 draw with Red Star Belgrade in their last game, Arsenal are in ideal form going into this one. The London side have been able to keep up with reigning champions Chelsea in the league, while they are just a single point behind Tottenham.

On Sunday, Arsenal faces a tough test as the Gunners travel to the Etihad Stadium to play Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have a near perfect record in the Premier League this season. The home side have recorded nine wins in their ten league games so far.

Everton were the only team to avoid defeat against the Citizens in the English top-flight this season. The Toffees managed a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium in August.

The men from Manchester are now undefeated in their last 18 Premier League games, having recorded 15 wins in the process. Guardiola’s side have also won their last eight games in the English top-flight.

Will Arsenal ‘park the bus’ at Manchester City? 2

The football style that is now synonymous with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho in big games of ‘parking the bus’ comes in very handy sometimes.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal may need to use the much-maligned style when the Gunners travel to Manchester City.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger loathes changing his football philosophy from attacking, passing football. However, sometimes needs must and Sunday is one of those games.

Manchester City are on fire

Manchester City are playing vibrant and exciting football at the moment. Some observers have even claimed that the Citizens are playing the best football the Premier League has ever seen.

Arsenal travel to play Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend as two of England’s biggest clubs lock horns once again.

With Pep Guardiola guiding his side to a near-perfect start this campaign, Arsene Wenger will know that the majority of the pressure will be on the former-Barcelona manager’s shoulders.

Wenger, therefore, knows that a win would be massively surprising, and it would see the confidence of his side skyrocket.

Of course, beating Manchester City will be no easy task, with City in outstanding form of late. If Arsenal are to win the game then, their manager must be ruthless.
