Manchester City go in search of a much-needed win when they host Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. City have failed to win their last two Premier League games and come up against a Gunners side which beat them in last season's FA Cup semi-final.

Man City Form


Man City started the season with an eye-catching 3-1 win over Wolves, but Pep Guardiola's side have failed to win either Premier League game since.

They were embarrassed 5-2 at home by a rampant Leicester in their most recent game at the Etihad, and were held to a 1-1 draw by new-boys Leeds before the international break.

Sandwiched either side of the defeat to Leicester were Carabao Cup wins over Bournemouth (2-1) and Burnley (3-0). But City face Arsenal with question marks hanging over them sitting in 14th position in the Premier League table.

Sergio Aguero remains on the sidelines, but Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko could be available after injuries.

Arsenal Form


Arsenal have lost just one of their seven games played so far this season in an encouraging start for Mikel Arteta's side.

They lifted the FA Community Shield with victory over Liverpool on penalties after a 1-1 draw at Wembley. Arsenal also repeated the spot kick success over the Reds in the Carabao Cup.

The Gunners' only defeat came courtesy of a 3-1 defeat at Liverpool in the Premier League, but they bounced back last time. Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe scored in a 2-1 win over Sheffield United before the international break.

Having also won against Fulham (3-0) and West Ham (2-0), Arsenal find themselves in fourth spot in the Premier League standings.

Arsenal Team News


Arsenal are set to hand a Premier League debut to Thomas Partey following his capture from Atletico Madrid. Injury will keep Calum Chambers, Pablo Mari, Gabriel Martinello and Shokdran Mustafi out, while Kieran Tierney is also unavailable.

Man City vs Arsenal Head to Head


A Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang double earned Arsenal a 2-0 win over Man City in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley in the last meeting. But City had won seven in a row prior to that including the last four matches at the Etihad.

Verdict

Man City have dominated Arsenal in the Premier League, but are too short given their early season struggles. 

Over 2.5 goals is the best bet, while Arsenal's pace - particularly Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - could exploit Man City's defensive frailties and lead to a high scoring game.
