Huge changes for Arsenal at Man City
Arsenal have made some huge changes for their game with Man City today, moving back to a back four.
It will be the first time since the end of last season that Arsene Wenger has moved away from the back three.
That formation saw Arsenal end the season in great form, lifting the FA Cup and ending the season with a fine run of victories.
However, today sees a back four with Francis Coquelin coming in to bolster the midfield and Alexis Sanchez moving to the central striker role.
One hour to go – and that means it's time for team news

It is a bold move from Wenger to change the system but City have been in irresistible form and he obviously believes Arsenal need a change of formation to get anything from the game.
Sead Kolasinac was expected to miss the game but will start at left back.
Alexandre Lacazette dropping to the bench is the biggest omission from the team.
