City missing Aguero, Toure and Nasri for clash with Arsenal
MANCHESTER CITY travel to Arsenal without Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and former Gunner Samir Nasri on Sunday.

Left-back Aleksandar Kolarov (knee) is back in contention for the Barclays Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium but right-back Maicon (knee) is still out while Micah Richards and Jack Rodwell are long-term casualties.
Provisional squad: Hart, Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Kompany, Nastasic, Lescott, Kolarov, Clichy, Rekik, Milner, Barry, Garcia, Sinclair, Silva, Tevez, Dzeko, Balotelli, Lopes, Suarez.
