Arsenal face Manchester City in the Premier League tomorrow.

Arsenal face perhaps one of their biggest tasks of the season tomorrow, as they face Manchester City at The Etihad Stadium.

In what is traditionally a bad hunting ground for Arsenal, they will not have many believers in their ability to outdo the Premier League champions in their own back yard.

Going into the game Arsenal have also been hit by a few injuries. Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Debuchy are out for six weeks, after undergoing surgery on ankle and shoulder problems respectively.

Arsene Wenger also confirmed to Arsenal.com this week that Danny Welbeck was definitely out of the game with a thigh problem and Kieran Gibbs remained a doubt with an injured heel.

So what clues could be taken from Arsenal's training session at London Colney this afternoon?

First of all, there was no sign of Gibbs. Whether that is a hint about his fitness ahead of tomorrow's game will have to be revealed, although Wenger had asserted he would be in training on Friday.

Wojciech Szczesny trained, but it would seem likely that David Ospina, who was also in action, will be starting between the sticks.

As for the rest of the session it looked as though Joel Campbell was enjoying himself, while Alexis Sanchez did his best rambo impression with a read head band on.

As for the coldest player at the training ground, that award goes to Laurent Koscielny - who looked positively freezing!
