Tipped by the bookmakers to put forth a strong title challenge, early signs suggest Manchester City may not be able to live up to expectations. They are currently in a rut, and in need of a couple of tweaks to revive their faltering campaign.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are tearing it up in the Premier League, and have quickly risen to the business end of the standings. With a decent return of nine points from four games, the Gunners should be lauded for their performances. Brace yourselves for a nerve-cracking ninety minutes come kickoff.

Manchester City vs Arsenal Team News

In something of a tailspin, Manchester City are currently not in good shape. A side known for their relentless high-press footballing style, they have looked lackluster this season, struggling to get going in their fixtures.

Though there are reports of internal crisis brewing at the club, their recent struggle boils down to some major injury problems in attack. With Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus out on the sidelines, the Citizens have played their previous two games without a recognized striker.

On the wrong end of a humiliating 5-2 defeat to Leicester City few weeks ago, Manchester City were brought down to bare bones on the night. As if that wasn’t enough, Guardiola’s charges were held to a one-all draw versus newly-promoted Leeds United on the last matchday.

Their Spanish gaffer will be inviting unbearable pressure on himself if his side play out another awful game this weekend. His two strikers may remain ineligible for this game, but Guardiola must find a solution to Man City’s woes soon enough.

Of course, Arsenal will be showing no mercy as they attempt exploiting City’s weaknesses. They have been in fantastic form this season, winning games with relative ease. So far, their singular PL defeat came against reigning champions Liverpool in a frantic 3-1 clash last month.

The Gunners were made to dig really deep for victory last time out, laying blood and sweat bare on the pitch to pinch out a fortuitous 2-1 victory over strugglers Sheffield United. Striking a purple patch on the hour-mark, Arteta’s men recorded two goals in the space of five minutes to move ahead.

Given a major scare by McGoldrick’s 84th-minute strike, Arsenal held their own till the final whistle to clinch maximum points. Far from their best in that fixture, they will need to improve on their urgency in the final-third to ensure City’s miseries are piled on.

Injured or Suspended Players

Manchester City: Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Philippe Sandler.
