Six changes for Manchester City including Sergio Aguero replacing Edin Dzeko up front. Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri are in to face their old club, but there is no David Silva in the starting XI.

Why so pessimistic? I'm confidently backing City today. Kompany is back (best defender in the world for me) and I think his absence was a big part of City's form taking a nose dive. City have a pretty good record against Arsenal as well since the Arab takeover.

City's Jekyll and Hyde season suggests an Arsenal win for me. Where has the team gone from the start of the season? You'd of won the league by about 20 points.

I'd love Arsenal to win via a controversial penalty or offside, just to fuck with the conspiracy theorists.

Hart

Zabaleta Kompany Lescott Clichy

Milner Barry

Nasri Yaya Toure Balotelli

Aguero

Good team in my opinion, feeling pretty confident but Arsenal have quality all over the pitch so we need to be 100% concentrated on the game.

Arsenal must play without fear and with fluidity. Arsene Wenger has tried to ease the pressure off his team and put it all on his opposite number's, and rightly so, all the pressure is on Mancini's side now, especially as Manchester United are currently eight points ahead with only six more to play. Arsenal will struggle if nerves start to show, but City could crumble if it gets the better of them. Will be a very interesting match to watch; I can't wait.

I'll use the power of my 1000th post to wish Balotelli carries on the trend of great performances after his more dangerous antics and bags a hattrick.

I have a bad feeling, so I'll be optimistic and say 1-1, but yeah. Not watching this, because I hate games on television, but I still aren't looking forward to this. I'd rather we tried to win this so we can secure second since it's three points on Arsenal than chase United really.

Why is Yossi playing!? Has he got something in his contract where he must play in the top games!? Guarantee Chelsea done that to try and screw us over!

Only reason I'm slightly more confident than normal is because United have just beaten QPR, and what I'd describe as a big gap has just opened up. Any other time, I think City would win.
