They have delivered fine game against Spanish Champions Real Madrid, but Cristiano Ronaldo‘s late goal changed the whole game.City’s last match in league also ended with draw against Stoke City so they should win this big match to defend their Championship.
Mancini and his side are happy about Sergio Aguero’s return and he will make big impact in team. Aguero will joinwith Carlos Tavez in front and Samir Nasri won’t available for three weeks (hamstring strain). Yaya Toure and David Silva are perfectly doing their roles.
Manchester City’s defensive is still good with combination of Captain Vincent Kompany and Lescott, but Mancini will give another chance to Matija Nastasic, who played against Real Madrid. Striker Edin Dzeko scored in Champions League so he will shine more in this game.

The Gunners having more physical and mental confident from their last two victories so they will deliver the same game against Champions of England. Before that, they have beat Liverpool in League by 2-0 and these all will bring new energy to them.
Lukas Podolski is improving for game-by-game and helped to win against their last match. Gervinho scored twice against Southampton and scored winning goal against Montpellier. These two players are giving more trouble to opponents in recent games. Midfielders Santi Cazorla and Mikel Arteta are giving good support to the strikers and doing their role effectively.
Arsenals’s striking force is good now, but there are some good young players kept in bench. Jack Wilshere is returned for training, but his debut is doubt for this match.
