Where Arsenal can try to exploit Man City

Where Arsenal can try to exploit Man City

In the defensive phase Arsenal will fall deep and form a block to force the city to pass sideways, and with Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang and Bellerin ready to fight back, they represent a constant threat. City's style of play means that it often pushes the defensive line up to the half-way line – if Arsenal's traps can force a turnover, the pace and firepower are there to exploit it.
Take Fernandinho out of the game
Fernandinho is the hub of Man City's construction game. It goes deep in the penalty shootout, always finding the space to connect those beautiful moves of passage that allow the city to move from their own box to that of opposition, with complete control of the ball.
Liverpool set the pattern to beat City last season and a key part of their gameplan was to exclude Fernandinho from the game. Roberto Firmino did it very well, never allowing his Brazilian partner a moment of peace.
