Using Dream Team points to determine an Arsenal & Man City combined XI ahead of tonight's pivotal clash | The Sun
IT would be naive to downplay the significance of tonight's top-of-the-table Premier League clash.
Having played one game fewer than Manchester City, Arsenal are currently three points ahead of Pep Guardiola's side but defeat this evening would drop them down to second on goal difference.
The safety net of a game in hand means the Gunners' fate will remain in their hands as long as they avoid a total thrashing but there's no telling how a loss to their title rivals, and subsequent fall to second, would impact them psychologically.
Conversely, victory would likely provide a massive morale boost that may be enough to carry them over the line throughout the final third of the campaign.
Should the Citizens lose, they may well feel the Premier League is something of a lost cause and focus their attention entirely on their quest for European glory.
Such decisive fixtures invariably provoke a torrent of combined XIs and we too shall oblige but only on the condition that we use this season's Dream Team points to solely determine the selected players.
GOALKEEPER: Aaron Ramsdale (£4m)
Arsenal's custodian edges out Ederson (£4.4m) by three points.
The England international's overall total of 69 is bettered by five other assets in his position but Man City's No1 is not among them.
Goals have flowed freely for the top two teams but clean sheets have been harder to come by then many would expect.
