The Gunners went into the international break having just beaten Sheffield United 2-1 at home, while City drew 1-1 with Leeds.

And despite having played just three Premier League fixtures so far, City are already playing catch-up in the title race.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will come up against his former boss Pep Guardiola once again, with the former having masterminded a 2-0 FA Cup semi-final win over his compatriot the last time these men met.

And with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang seeking to end a three-game goal drought, the Gunners could well prove tricky opposition for City this Saturday.

Man City v Arsenal team news

Man City: Sergio Aguero could be on the bench for City after recovering from a knee injury suffered at the start of the summer. Raheem Sterling missed the international break due to a hamstring issue but is likely to feature here.

Kevin De Bruyne withdrew from Belgium duty on Monday and is an injury concern, while Gabriel Jesus is expected to miss this clash. Oleksandr Zinchenko could be fit again, but Guardiola has some real selection issues to address here.

Arsenal: The Gunners will hope Aubameyang recovers from a sprained ankle to start here, but Kieran Tierney is still self-isolating after coming into close contact with Scotland team-mate Stuart Armstrong, who tested positive for Covid-19.

New signing Thomas Partey will likely make his debut, while Gabriel Martinelli, Calum Chambers, Shkodran Mustafi and Pablo Mari remain injured.

Our prediction: Man City v Arsenal

City played a thriller against Leeds last time out but wasted a host of first-half chances to put the game to bed early on.

Guardiola has plenty of issues to address in his forward line, and this could help Arsenal settle into the game at the Etihad.

Expect the Gunners to take the game to City here. Arteta knows how dangerous his forward men are, and this could lead to an open contest that produces goals at both ends.

Our prediction: Man City 2-2 Arsenal
