Kompany and Walker would be benched with upcoming matches against Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, and Champions League match against Basel around the corner.

Wenger’s managerial carrier would be gambled at this match and the intensity with which Arsenal plays at Emirates would make Manchester City struggle. The fortune less manager would hope to turn the tide and secure three points today to ensure a Champions League spot.
