Manchester City badly need a victory when they entertain Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening. City have not won in their last two Premier League fixtures and face a Gunners outfit they lost to in last season's FA Cup semi-final.

Manchester City Form & News


Manchester City started the campaign with a bang, beating Wolves 3-1, but Pep Guardiola's charges have failed to claim a Premier League victory since.

They were smacked 5-2 at home by Leicester City in their last game at the Etihad, and were held to a 1-1 draw by Leeds United ahead of the international break.

On either side of the loss to the Foxes were Carabao Cup victories over Bournemouth (2-1) and Burnley (3-0).

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

Arsenal Form & News


Arsenal have been defeated in just one of their seven fixtures so far this season.

Mikel Arteta's side lifted the FA Community Shield with a win over Liverpool on penalties after a 1-1 draw at Wembley. Arsenal repeated that spot kick success over the Reds in the Carabao Cup a few weeks later.

The Gunners' only loss came at Liverpool 3-1 in the Premier League, but they bounced back last time out. Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe netted in a 2-1 victory over Sheffield United ahead of the international break.

Having also beaten Fulham (3-0) and West Ham United (2-0), the Gunners find themselves in fourth spot in the Premier League.

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.

Manchester City vs Arsenal Head to Head


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice to earn Arsenal a 2-0 victory over Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley in the last meeting of the sides.

Before that somewhat surprising result, City had won seven in a row against Arsenal.

Manchester City vs Arsenal Odds
