EPL 2017/18: Manchester City vs Arsenal - Combined XI
In one of two big games on a Super Sunday in the Premier League, league leaders Manchester City play host to a resurgent Arsenal outfit. Pep Guardiola's men have enjoyed a flying start to the season, winning nine of their ten league games, while Arsene Wenger's outfit have struggled to pick up points away from the Emirates Stadium.
Thus, there are no points for guessing as to who the favourites for this game are as the Citizens are expected to run riot over the Gunners. However, the Arsenal faithful will be hoping for Wenger to come up with a masterclass like he did against Chelsea that could help curtail the Manchester side.
With both teams possessing an array of talented players, we take into account both their stars to form a combined eleven (4-1-4-1). The players will be judged on the performances of the current league season only.
#1 Goalkeeper: Ederson (Manchester City)
In a straight fight between Ederson and Petr Cech, it is the former that holds the upper hand. The Manchester City number one, unlike his predecessor Claudio Bravo, has hit the ground running in the Premier League. Cech, on the other hand, has looked far from assured in the Arsenal goal and already seems like a shadow of his old self.
