Arsenal will travel to Manchester to face the Citizens in a tie that make or break both teams.
However, Manchester City will be without their central midfielder IIkay Gundogan, after the player sustained a knee injury.
Gundogan’s injury setback will be a blow for City for the upcoming tie against Arsene Wenger’s side. Guardiola is likely to field Fernando and Yaya Toure in the central midfield position when they face Arsenal on Sunday.
The Citizens ended their two-match losing streak in the Premier League with a victory over Watford. The City manager was delighted with his side’s performance and was impressed with Toure’s display in their latest win.
“Yaya is an exceptional player and if he plays as he did today we are very happy for him – he can play as a defensive midfielder or further forward and he did very well this evening,” the City boss explained.
“We are happy with the result, it was important to win this game against a well-organised Watford side All the team worked hard and it is good to get a clean sheet and all our defenders did well against Watford’s tough, powerful strikers.”
