Arsenal Vs. Manchester City, 2011 Carling Cup Quarterfinals: Lineups

Both Arsenal and Manchester City are fielding interesting lineups for their Carling Cup quarterfinal clash, and they're a bit ambiguous. Arsenal could be playing a 4-3-3 with Park Chu-Young as a wide forward or they could be playing a 4-4-2 with Yossi Benayoun as a winger. Manchester City's lineup looks like a 4-5-1, but that would mean that natural fullback Pablo Zabaleta was playing in midfield, something that he's done before. We'll just have to wait and see what it looks like on the pitch. Here are the lineups.

Arsenal Lineup (4-3-3): Fabianski; Djourou, Koscielny, Miquel, Yennaris; Frimpong, Benayoun, Coquelin; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Park, Chamakh

Manchester City Lineup (4-5-1): Pantilimon; Onuoha, Savic, K. Toure, Kolarov; Johnson, de Jong, Nasri, Hargreaves, Zabaleta; Dzeko
