Arsenal Line Up Vs Man City, Denis Suarez To Be Debuted

Arsenal boss Unai Emery might today hand Denis Suarez his Premier League debut when they face defending champions Manchester City.

Suarez, who completed a loan witch from Barcelona last month, trained with his new team-mates on Friday and will hope to feature against Pep Guardiola's outfit.

Emery remained coy on where and when he is likely to field the Spanish midfielder in his line-up, praising Suarez’s versatility having worked with him at Sevilla in 2014/15.

When asked about the new arrival in his pre-match press conference, Emery said:”I think he is good, he adapts quickly and he is a player with quality.

“I am thinking about all the players. If he starts, I have confidence in him.

“He can play right he can play inside like a No 10 player. I will use him in all positions.”

Emery's comments suggest Suarez is most likely to be in competition with Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan for a spot in the starting XI.

Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should start up front while Granit Xhaka should return as part of a three-man midfield.

Laurent Koscielny is back in training and could return after a nasty jaw injury.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has returned to training and is available but Danny Welbeck remains a long-term absentee.
