The 17 year old midfielder completed his medical earlier this week and has made his £2m move to Arsenal from Legia Warsaw but the idea he may figure in such a key fixture may well concern Gunners fans.

Wenger has already confirmed that Bielik will move directly to his first team squad for the second half of the current campaign but the idea he might be ‘thrown in at the deep end’ will leave many believing that this is down chiefly to the lack of strength in depth in the Arsenal manager’s Emirates Stadium squad.

On his new signing Wenger stated;

‘He’s a defensive midfielder, 6ft 2ins, he has a good energy level and technical level. Also, it’s a gamble. But on what we saw it’s worth taking.’

The north London side could well do with a steely option in the middle of the park with the likes of Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta failing to consistently impress in the role but given Bielik’s tender years it would be hugely surprising if he were to play a significant role in proceedings this weekend.

Arsenal travel to the Etihad Stadium hoping for an improvement in results against the Premier League’s top sides and looking to make amends for last season’s 6-3 defeat in the corresponding fixture in December 2013.
