Man City XI vs Arsenal: Predicted lineup and latest team news

First-choice target Harry Kane would have wanted to be making his debut this weekend but has now confirmed he will not be leaving Tottenham this summer.

So, the focal attacking point – if there is one for City – is again up for grabs with Ferran Torres or Gabriel Jesus so far trading the spot.

Pep Guardiola talked up Jesus’s effectiveness out wide after the 5-0 thumping of Norwich – but both Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez are pushing for starts. That may push Jack Grealish into a deeper role.

Kevin De Bruyne is a doubt for the game, while Phil Foden is definitely out. Further back, John Stones is pushing for a start as he continues to work on his fitness.

Manchester City predicted XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Rodri, Gundogan, Grealish; Jesus, Sterling, Mahrez

Saturday 12.30pm BST, Sky Sports

Man City squad from: Ederson, Steffen, Carson, Van Sas, Cancelo, Dias, Ake, Laporte, Mendy, Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Gundogan, Palmer, Grealish, De Bruyne, Mahrez, Bernardo, Silva, Rodri, Torres, Jesus, Couto, Sandler, Rogers, Doyle, Edozie, Knight, Lavia, McAtee
