Video Arsenal vs Manchester City 0 – 3 Highlights
Arsenal 0-3 Manchester City Download HD/Mp4 25 February 2018 League/Carabao Cup Final
The big note for Manchester City is the absence of Raheem Sterling, who has not recovered in time from a hamstring injury picked up against Basel. David Silva starts on the flank instead, joining Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane, while Gabriel Jesus returns to the bench following a 12-match absence. Pep Guardiola has opted to go with experience at the back with Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi starting ahead of John Stones and Aymeric Laporte. Danilo is preferred at left-back, while Claudio Bravo remains their first-choice keeper in the EFL Cup.
Arsene Wenger surprisingly reverts to a back three, with out of form Callum Chambers joining Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny. Not surprisingly, it’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who leads the line, flanked by Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil. Wing-backs Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin will provide support, while Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka anchor midfield.
