City go after their first win of the season with a convincing 5-0 victory over Norwich City at the Etihad Stadium. Pep will look to continue without a correct #9 and will try to beat his student in Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal have lost both of their opening two league games against Brentford and Chelsea, but bounced back with a 6-0 Carabao Cup win over West Brom in midweek. Something has to give positively for Arteta this match.
Which team will come out in front?
Pep Guardiola’s side have Kevin De Bruyne listed as questionable and Phil Foden, Yangel Herrera are out for this one. Ben Mendy remains suspended.
Arsenal will see Nketiah, Gabriel, Bellerin, Partey and Willian out.
Manchester City 2-0 Arsenal
