1..Our league form has been superb recently, our current performances and momentum should be enough for the team to put in another good showing against City
2..City have some goalkeeper unrest at the moment and they are not sure who is their number one ‘keeper at the moment, lets test this out by creating some proper chances
3..We beat them Pre season, yes its only a friendly but we did it once, we can do it again!
4..We should have beat them last season, Gervinho had a glorious chance to put us in front and didn’t take it, we are due a win there
5..We have conceded only 5 goals away all season, winning 5 of 7, we drew against West Brom and lost against United
6..Sagna, the best right back in the league has had a break and sat out against Hull, Everton and Napoli. He should, I hope, be ready to go again and put in a top performance against City
7..Our away support is the best in the land and will be non stop singing to support the team throughout the game
8..Mesut Ozil is going to be putting a massive performance soon, we haven’t seen the best of him yet and I cant help but think he will take over a game for us, could this be the one?
9..Theo Walcott is back in the side, his pace can frighten the best of teams, especially with our creative midfield talent trying to pick his runs out.
10..We got through the Champions League Group of death, yes we lost but we are through, that should give them a lift and aim to win the next game.
Likely starting XI – Chesney, Sagna, Per, Kos, Monreal, Flamini, Ramsey, Jack, Ozil, Theo, Giroud.
