Mustafi And Aubameyang To Start, Holding And Pepe Out: Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Face Manchester City

After resting Shkodran Mustafi against Liverpool midweek, it is likely that head coach Mikel Arteta will reinstate the German to the starting eleven for the FA Cup semi-final clash against Manchester City.

With Sead Kolasinac also having started on the bench, the pair are expected to be named in the team that will line up at Wembley. It will be harsh on Rob Holding who performed well in the 2-1 victory over the Reds. Hector Bellerin could also be recalled with the Spaniard replacing Cedric on the right flank.

In midfield, it is almost certain that Dani Ceballos will come back into the team ahead of Lucas Torreira, and link up with Granit Xhaka once again.


After his surprise omission on Wednesday, captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will return to the eleven. Nicolas Pepe is the likeliest to give way, with Bukayo Saka taking up a place in the front three after being utilised as a wingback versus Liverpool.

Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Face Manchester City:

Martinez, Bellerin, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac, Tierney, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka, Lacazette, Aubameyang
