Last season’s top two meet on Sunday as Arsenal entertain the Premier League champions Manchester City.
Arsenal thrashed Bournemouth 4-0 in their last league fixture, with Kai Havertz scoring his first goal for the Gunners in the win.
They were surprisingly beaten in the Champions League though, going down 2-1 away to Lens, despite a Gabriel Jesus opening goal.
Manchester City recorded an impressive 3-1 win away to RB Leipzig in the Champions League, with Julian Alvarez scoring one and assisting another off the bench.
They were beaten for the first time in the league last weekend though, losing 2-1 away to Wolves despite the home side registering just one shot on target.
Premier League form: Arsenal W3 D2 L0; Manchester City W4 D0 L1

Saka has an ongoing injury issue and was withdrawn early midweek, making him a major doubt for the visit of Manchester City.
Thomas Partey is back and could return to the XI, with Havertz continuing should the Ghanaian not be considered ready.
Rodri will serve the final of a three game suspension, meaning Matheus Nunes may well continue despite an early withdrawal against Wolves.
Bernardo Silva is fully fit and will likely start, whilst Jack Grealish may have to make do with a spot on the bench.
Expected starting XI’s
Arsenal (4-3-3): Raya; White, Gabriel, Saliba, Zinchenko; Rice, Partey, Odegaard; Saka, Jesus, Trossard
Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Ederson; Walker, Dias, Akanji, Gvardiol; Kovacic, Nunes; Bernardo, Alvarez, Doku; Haaland
That run has to come to an end at some point right?
