Arsenal - Manchester City combined XI
The combined starting 11 from the two giant Premier League teams
Arsenal and Manchester City clash two times in five days’ time in London. The two clubs would first attempt to grab the first piece of silverware on offering when they face off in Wembley for the Carabao Cup on Sunday, before returning to Premier League action in a rare Thursday night match.
Manchester City clearly boast of a superior squad in terms of depth and quality, and while Arsenal tend to step up their game when they are at Wembley, a safe bet would be to go with Manchester City to come out on top in both games.
We tried to draw up a starting 11 out of the two squads in question. Who do you think would make the cut? Would Manchester City dominate this lineup, just as how they have dominated the league this season? Keep on reading to find out!
Note: Only the players declared fit to play have been considered for selection.
Petr Cech is a Premier League legend and he will be known as one of the best goalkeepers of his generation. He had a phenomenal time with Chelsea and while he seemed to have the Arsenal goalkeeping situation under control during the first couple of years, he hasn’t been anywhere near his best during this season.
Manchester City’s Ederson has had a good season so far, and has shown great composure while guarding the net. While Claudio Bravo has been the mainstay during the Carabao Cup games, Ederson is expected to be the first name on the sheet in both the encounters, and he is our pick for this combined eleven.
