City change shape after defeat, Ozil dropped for Arsenal

Premier League: Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny returns to full training ahead of crucial clash against...

The Gunners were never expected to be busy in the January transfer window, with Unai Emery revealing that he had no funds to spend.

Knowing that Arsenal don't have the best players to perhaps play in the four at the back system, we could see a three at the back set-up against Manchester City.

"It's no change for him", Emery said of Ozil.

"I am thinking of all the players, and I will make my decision tomorrow, but if he starts I have confidence in him".

Suarez has joined Arsenal on loan until the summer with an option to buy. The club worked very well.

However, Guardiola - who is trying to successfully play catch-up in a title race for the first time in his career - believes quieter players like David Silva, Fernandinho and others are capable of being influential in a different way. And I saw a lot of players who speak a lot in the locker room, "I want to do that", and afterwards, when they go out on the pitch and they are under pressure, say "I don't want the ball and I don't want to defend".

"I used to watch Bergkamp and Henry - they're both legends of the club and hopefully we can follow in their footsteps".

Unai Emery's Arsenal will look to outsmart Manchester City as they visit Etihad on Sunday in a crucial English Premier League fixture.

"Our challenge every day, every match, is to take a better balance in the attacking and defensive moments", he explained.

But the manager pointed to Liverpool's journey to the Champions League final last term - and the demands of qualifying for the tournament in back-to-back campaigns - as evidence that the Reds can deal with the situation.

"Now, with Liverpool, they are doing a very big Premier League this season".

"They have lost some matches but I think that was an accident".

Manchester City are aware of the repercussions of falling further behind Liverpool after they dropped three precious points against Newcastle United in midweek.

"It is a very hard situation for Ozil and for Arsenal". We have maybe some injuries but we have other players who can play and help the team with their qualities, with the performances, with their condition.

Meanwhile, defender Hector Bellerin has undergone successful surgery after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament rupture earlier this month.

"It's a big injury and a long time, this season is impossible", he added.
