The Cityzens bounced back from an opening day defeat to Tottenham Hotspur with a 5-0 thumping of Norwich City and the defending champions will next play host to a wounded Gunners outfit. 
Arsenal are pointless and goalless after successive 2-0 defeats to Brentford and Chelsea respectively. Pressure is mounting on manager Mikel Arteta and it won't get any easier for the north London club. 

"They were the better team. It is one of the difficult moments. The circumstances are difficult and unprecedented," Arteta said following his team's lacklustre performance against the Blues. 

"Feeling sorry for yourself doesn't help. You have to win football matches, keep it together and show spirit."

City boast a dominant record in matches against Arsenal in the Premier League over the last few seasons and completed the league double over their rivals in the 2020/21 campaign. Raheem Sterling has scored in four successive league games against Arsenal and netted the only goal in both matches between the two clubs last season.
