If you are after a more City-centric view to proceedings, then our very own We’re Not Really Here matchday show could well be the thing for you.

With expert analysis before the match, at half time and following the full-time whistle for half an hour, the show is available to watch on all digital platforms.

We're Not Really Here will also have player reaction and, time permitting, the post match thoughts of Pep Guardiola.

Tuesday’s show will kick-off at 7pm (UK), with an hour of build-up, interviews and chat leading up to the match.

Joleon Lescott, Paul Dickov and Michael Brown will join presenter Cel Spellman to provide the perfect build-up to the big game.

City will monitor the condition of Gabriel Jesus who missed the trip to Southampton after receiving a blow to the mouth in our draw with West Brom. 

Arsenal will await news on the fitness of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who missed Saturday's loss to Everton with a tight hamstring.

Thomas Partey could also be absent having missed the past fortnight with a thigh knock while Granit Xhaka is suspended.

Form guide

City go into the match on a eight-match unbeaten run in all competitions and, during that period, we have conceded just one goal.

We boast a magnificent record in the Carabao Cup, having won the trophy for the past three seasons with our last defeat in the competition coming back in October 2016.

Mikel Arteta’s Gunners are going through a tough spell at the moment with last Saturday’s 2-1 Premier League loss at Everton leaving Arsenal with 14 points from 14 league games.

However, they beat City in the semi-final of the FA Cup last season and went on to win that trophy, beating Chelsea in the final.
