Right winger: Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)
Bukayo Saka’s influence in the Arsenal squad has grown steadily and now in the 2022-23 season, he’s had his best run for the club yet, scoring 13 goals and making 11 assists from 32 league appearances. The 21-year-old is a real force of nature and the Gunners will be relying on his attacking prowess to produce the goods at the Etihad.
Striker: Erling Haaland (Manchester City)
Where do we even begin with this fella? Just look at his stats – 32 league goals in 28 appearances, at least eight more than anyone in the division, and including four hat-tricks. Simply put, Haaland has taken the Premier League by storm and he will no doubt be the biggest threat coming from the hosts.
Left winger: Gabriel Martinelli (Arsenal)
There are quite a few good options in this position, but Gabriel Martinelli has been the best among them. With 15 goals in the league, he’s been the most prolific goal scorer for Arsenal in the competition, while also contributing another five assists. A dynamic and explosive forward, Martinelli is a clinical forward and exercises his amazing dribbling skills to slalom past the most intricate defences.
