Manchester City are looking for just their second win of the season following a lacklustre start.

Three games in and City have taken four points, having been trashed by Leicester and held to a draw with Leeds.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have secured nine points from their opening four fixtures.

The Gunners have defeated Fulham, West Ham and Burnley, but in their first major test they were defeated by Liverpool.

Mikel Arteta will be hoping his side will be lifted by the arrival of Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid for £45 million.

Manchester City vs Arsenal: Recommended bets

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score first. Arsenal’s captain netted the first goal in the last meeting between the two sides during last season’s FA Cup semi-final.

Aubameyang will be looking to end a run of three league games without a goal and is at 11/2 to open the scoring on Saturday.

Manchester City vs Arsenal: Match preview

Man City sit 14th in the Premier League after three games played with four points.

On the opening day, City produced an impressive performance at Molineux to comfortably defeat Wolves.

But a week later, Pep Guardiola’s side were brought crashing back down to earth as they were thrashed by Leicester.

The Foxes seriously exposed City’s defensive weaknesses putting five past them at the Etihad.

Man City were then held to a 1-1 draw with Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United to continue their underwhelming start.

To make matters worse, Guardiola could be without a number of key players on Saturday.

The likes of Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are varying degrees of injury concerns.

On Wednesday, City kick off their Champions League campaign at home to FC Porto.

Arsenal’s awful away record against the top six

Arsenal have taken nine points from three very winnable fixtures so far.

The Gunners have comfortably seen off Fulham, West Ham and Burnley to have them sat fourth in the league.

However, against Liverpool, they were well beaten and never looked like posing much threat to the Reds.

Over recent years, Arsenal’s record away at the top six has been poor and despite a strong start to the season, they once again were tripped up by one of the Premier League’s big boys.

Arsenal last won an away fixture against one of the Premier League’s top six sides back in January 2015.

Mikel Arteta has made a number of positive changes at Arsenal so far and ahead of a very tricky trip to the Etihad, the Gunners’ record at the top six is another change he will need to make.

Manchester City team news vs Arsenal

The Argentine has been recovering from a knee injury.

Meanwhile, Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Oleksandr Zinchenko are also all doubts for Saturday.

Arsenal team news vs Manchester City

Arsenal’s new addition Thomas Partey could be set to make his debut for the club.

The midfielder was in action for Ghana on both Friday and Monday.

Partey then arrived at the Gunners’ training ground for the first time on Tuesday.

Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney has been granted special dispensation for Saturday’s game.

The Scottish defender came in close contact with national team teammate Stuart Armstrong who tested positive for COVID.

Arsenal will remain without Calum Chambers, Gabriel Martinelli, Pablo Mari and Shkodran Mustafi.
