Arsenal take on Manchester City today in a crucial encounter which can see the Gunners secure a top three finish.

Mesut Ozil is expected to start in his favoured number ten role behind striker Olivier Giroud.

City will be without their star defender and captain Vincent Kompany after he suffered a calf injury during the Citizen’s defeat to Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League.

Ozil has enjoyed an impressive season for the Gunners this season so far. The 27-year-old has recorded 18 assists and with two games to go still has a chance of equalling the Premier League record of 20 set by Thierry Henry.
