# Key Players of the Gunners: Olivier Giroud is an Arsenal striker who is in great form now though perhap he would not play in friendly match. Alex Iwobi and Theo Walcott would possibly lead their attacking division where Colombian Ospina would be their goalkeeper. If we consider their best players, Alexis Sanchez is one of them but coach Wenger will not use him in friendly match.
# Key Players of City: The Citizens possess some great players like Pablo Zabaleta, Nicolas Otamendi, Sergio Aguero and so on but in such kinds of friendly matches they would not have a chance to perform unless in great need. Otamendi would lead the defense instead the Belgian Kompany. Brazilian Fernandinho and Fernando would play along with Navas and Kelechi.
# Prediction: Still the maximum possibility goes to Arsenal. So, the prediction is – Arsenal 2 – 1 Manchester City.
