Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will lead the Arsenal line in Sunday’s Premier League clash with Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium.

Aubameyang – a January arrival from Borussia Dortmund – will start at the tip of the Arsenal attack, while Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are also included as Alexandre Lacazette is named on the bench.

There are two debutants in the Gunners XI, meanwhile, as Sokratis and Matteo Guendouzi are both selected, but fellow new arrivals Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Lucas Torreira are on the bench.

As for City, head coach Pep Guardiola has made three changes to the team that started the 2-0 win over Chelsea in the Community Shield, with Ederson, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling coming in for Claudio Bravo, Phil Foden and Leroy Sane.
