Robert Pires has warned Arsenal about the threat posed by Sergio Aguero ahead of Sunday’s showdown with Manchester City at The Emirates.

The north London side are preparing to welcome Pep Guardiola’s men to Emirates Stadium as the look to get their top-four bid back on track.

Arsenal have been in disastrous form in recent weeks, with the Gunners having slumped to sixth place in the Premier League after a run of four defeats from five games.

The Gunners have also been knocked out of the Champions League at the hands of Bayern Munich, and so Sunday’s game takes on added significance.

And former Arsenal star Pires has warned the north London side that Aguero is set to pose a serious threat on Sunday afternoon.

Speaking in an interview with TAG Heuer, Pires said: “Aguero has everything. Of course, he’s a good striker.

“He has a lot of potential. He’s a small player but he’s very strong and loves to fight with the defenders. He’s very dangerous.”

Pires is also a keen admirer of Yaya Toure.

He added: “I love Yaya Toure. He is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.”

Arsenal finished in second place in the Premier League last season and without a trophy, after winning the FA Cup in both 2014 and 2015.
