Pre-Match Report

Manchester City v Arsenal: The Brief

That 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on the opening day of the season felt like the finished article against a work in progress.

On Sunday, we’ll see how far we’ve come since then.

There’s excitement about the prospect of seeing Denis Suarez in action, but equally there’s trepidation about the damage City could do against our depleted defence.

The good news is that Laurent Koscielny is fit to return - and we’ll need him and everyone else at their resolute best to bring a point or three back to north London.
