At the Etihad Stadium today, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City will take on Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal. The Gunners will be looking to win their first Premier League match against City since December 2015. Both teams have recently won convincingly, with City cruising to a 5-0 victory over Norwich City and Arsenal thrashing West Brom 6-0 in the Carabao Cup. With the likes of Aubameyang and Martin Odegaard returning to the starting 11, Arsenal are in a far better position than they were against Chelsea. However, it almost feels as if Arsenal’s season won’t get going until after the international break, so it’s difficult not to see City running riot today.
Man City XI: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Stones, Cancelo; Silva, Rodri, Gundogan; Mahrez, Jesus, Grealish
Arsenal XI: Leno; Cedric, Holding, Mari, Tierney; Lokonga, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang
Man City 3-1 Arsenal
