Ilkay Gundogan could return to the City line-up after missing the midweek victory over Everton, but defender Nathan Ake misses out again. The Dutch international has resumed individual training, but is not yet ready to rejoin the squad.
“Gundo played just part of today’s session," he said at his pre-match press conference.
"We will see tomorrow how he feels.”
“Nathan has come back to training on the pitch. Alone still, but he is closer to coming back with us,” added the City boss.
“The rest are fit.”
City won their last league game at The Emirates 3-0, with Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden scoring for the Blues. Overall City have won 46 of the 171 games played against the Gunners, with 40 draws and 85 defeats.
