Pep Looking to Kick-Start City's Season with Win Over Arteta's Gunners
Man City took the lead in the 17th minute away at newly-promoted Leeds Utd, thanks to a fantastic effort from Raheem Sterling. Sterling's first league goal of the season was cancelled out in the second-half by a close-range effort from Rodrigo. Leeds ended the game stronger than their guests, but City held on to secure a share of the spoils.
Arsenal added to Sheffield Utd's miseries last time out, securing a 2-1 win at the Emirates. Saka opened the scoring just after the hour mark, and soon after, Pepe made it 2-0. Sheff Utd pulled a goal back through veteran striker McGoldrick, but Arteta's men held on to claim all 3pts.
When City played host to Arsenal back in June, a goal from Sterling separated the sides at the interval. Midfield maestro De Bruyne converted a penalty early in the second forty-five to make it 2-0, and, in stoppage-time, Foden netted to wrap up a convincing 3-0 home win for Man City.
Arsenal head into this weekend's match as the form favourites with four wins from their last six matches in all competitions. Man City have had a slower start than usual to the season and sit 5pts behind Arsenal in the table. However, City have a game in hand over this weekend's guests and have won three of their last five matches in league and cup.
Head to Head Record
City don't have the best overall record against the Gunners, but in recent years they have had the better of the Londoners. Man City have won seven of their last eight games against Arsenal, so should be confident heading into Saturday's clash. Arsenal did win the last meeting between the two clubs 2-0 in the FA Cup but have lost their last four trips to the Etihad.
Aguero is unlikely to feature for the hosts as he continues his rehab following a knee injury. Gundongan is back in training and could face a late fitness test, so will Gabriel Jesus. Zinchenko looks set to miss out after picking up an injury in training, but Sterling could return following a thigh injury.
Arsenal will be without the injured Tierney, Martinelli, Chambers, Mustafi, and Villar this weekend. Emile Smith Rowe and captain Aubameyang are back in training. The pair will likely face late fitness tests ahead of the trip to the Etihad.

- Both Teams to Score: BTTS – Yes @ 8/13
- Result & Total Goals Under/Over: Man City & Over 2.5 Goals @ 4/5
- Anytime Goalscorer: Raheem Sterling to Score @ 10/11
BTTS – Yes
Eight of the last 14 fixtures between City and Arsenal have seen both teams score. The hosts have only kept one clean sheet in their last six attempts and have struggled defensively so far this season. Both teams have scored in three of Arsenal's last five outings, with the Gunners only failing to score in one of those matches.
Man City have only failed to score in one of their last five encounters with the Gunners and have scored in each of the duo's last 10 league meetings. This is a fixture that so often produces goals, and we're expecting both teams to find the back of the net once again this Saturday.
Man City & Over 2.5 Goals
Man City have won four of their last five matches against Arsenal and haven't lost in the league to the Gunners since 2015. City have won their last four home games against the Londoners, last losing at home to Arsenal in 2015.
Over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of the duo's last four meetings, with City scoring over 2.5 team goals in each of those three games. Over 2.5 goals have been produced in 12 of the pair's last 14 encounters in all competitions (including friendlies).
Arsenal might have started the season better, but we're backing Man City to win and for at least 3-goals to be scored in the process.
Raheem Sterling to Score
Sterling scored 20-goals in the Premier League for Man City last season and is already off and running in 2020/21. The England international has scored three goals in his last four appearances against the Gunners, and all of those games have ended in victory. We're backing Sterling to find the back of the net at least once against Arsenal this weekend.
