Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Manchester City

Sports Mole rounds up all of Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Manchester City.

Last season's Premier League runners-up host the reigning champions in Sunday's blockbuster Emirates battle, as Arsenal renew hostilities with Manchester City.

The Gunners are seeking to redeem themselves following a 2-1 loss to Lens in the Champions League, where goals from Elye Wahi and Adrien Thomasson cancelled out a Gabriel Jesus opener.

Despite falling short in Europe, Mikel Arteta's side remain undefeated domestically so far and are just one point adrift of the champions owing to their 4-0 drubbing of Bournemouth last weekend.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's injury and suspension news ahead of their headline encounter with Man City, who bested RB Leipzig 3-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Gabriel Martinelli

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: October 8 (vs. Man City)

Ever since Gabriel Martinelli suffered a hamstring injury against Everton on September 17 - the severity of which has not been disclosed - Arteta has repeatedly refused to rule the Brazilian out of his side's next game, but it would be a surprise to see the South American passed fit to take on the Citizens.

Bukayo Saka

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: October 8 (vs. Man City)

Arteta's decision to risk Bukayo Saka from the start against Lens raised a few eyebrows due to the winger's recent knocks, and the Spaniard's move backfired when Saka left the field with a hamstring problem in the first half, but the Englishman is "in contention" to face Pep Guardiola's team.

Jurrien Timber

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Jurrien Timber has been recovering from a serious ACL injury for the past two months, but it will still be a while before the Dutchman is seen in the red and white strip again.


Arsenal have no players suspended for this match.
