The Gunners will on Wednesday evening engage Manchester City in a crucial Premier League showdown.

Meanwhile, Arsenal’s sensation Bukayo Saka has made some interesting changes to his Fantasy Premier League team ahead of their critical encounter.

National Daily understands that the game at the Etihad Stadium has been billed as a must-win for Mikel Arteta’s side, who are five points clear at the top of the Premier League but have played two more fixtures than Pep Guardiola’s reigning champions.

Saka, meanwhile, is also flying high in an FPL league which includes his Arsenal teammates Mohamed Elneny, Rob Holding and Eddie Nketiah.

But ahead of game week 33 where Arsenal take on City, Saka opted to sell Arsenal teammate Gabriel Martinelli and bring Marcus Rashford into his FPL side, with Manchester United playing away against Tottenham on Thursday.

Saka, who owns himself in his FPL team, also opted to bench Oleksandr Zinchenko and keep him as third sub.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal’s title clash, Arteta described the match as an ‘incredible opportunity’ for his squad and dismissed a suggestion that playing City at the Etihad Stadium earlier in the season would have benefited his side.

‘They’ve been in incredible form but look where we are in the table,’ Arteta said.

‘That means we’ve been in incredible form as well. That’s why we are where we are.

‘It’s going to be a tough night and challenge but the opportunity is incredible for us.

‘We knew from the beginning, if you want to win a Premier League, you have to go to Spurs and beat them. You have to go to Chelsea and you have to beat them.

‘You have to go away from home and win. This is what we’ve been doing. This is why we’re here. Now you have to go to City and you have to beat them.”’
