Arsenal will be looking to return to winning ways when they host title favourites Manchester City in Saturday’s late kick off in the Premier League.
The Gunners’ took just one point from six available over the past seven days, following up last Saturday’s 6-0 humiliation at Stamford Bridge with a 2-2 draw with Swansea City three days later.
Arsene Wenger remains without a number of first team players, with Nacho Monreal and Laurent Koscielny the latest names on their injury list.
The pair join midfielders Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey, Abou Diaby, Ryo Miyaichi and Theo Walcott on the side-lines.
Victory for the North London side will see them move level on points with Manuel Pellegrini’s men, and two behind second place Liverpool who host Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon while leaders Chelsea travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Just as they did last weekend, Arsenal leaked six goals when they faced City at the Etihad Stadium, losing 6-3 back in December.
The Manchester side also ran out winners when the sides met at the Emirates last season, when goals from James Milner and Edin Dzeko secured all three points last January.
