Arsenal are currently in a better place than earlier in the season when it comes to injuries, mainly because Vivienne Miedema made her return in the victory over Bristol City.
She has been out with an ACL injury since December 2022 and she is expected to get some more minutes against Man City. Having won their last two league games, Arsenal will hope they have put any poor form behind them.
Arsenal predicted lineup vs Man City
Arsenal predicted lineup vs Man City (4-2-3-1): Zinsberger; Maritz, Wubben-Moy, Codina, Catley; Maanum, Walti; McCabe, Little, Foord; Russo.
The international break proved to be a very unfortunate one for Man City because England defender Alex Greenwood suffered a serious head injury against Belgium. She will not be involved against Arsenal.
With Man City playing well at the moment, Gareth Taylor is expected to name largely the same starting eleven from the 1-0 win away at Leicester City.
Man City predicted lineup vs Arsenal
Man City predicted lineup vs Arsenal (4-3-3): Keating; Morgan, Kennedy, Houghton, Alexandri; Angeldal, Hasegawa, Roord; Fowler, Shaw, Kelly.
Arsenal are certainly the team with the most pedigree here but they are the team that has struggled more in the early stages of this very young WSL campaign.
Considering that Man City are. now without a key player in Greenwood, and the home advantage that Arsenal can boast, the Gunners may well continue their return to form here with a narrow win against this Man City side that looks set to be near the top for a lot of the season.
Prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Man City
