- Saturday, August 28, 2021 - 12.30: Manchester City vs Arsenal
Manchester City vs Arsenal Betting PreviewManchester City bounced back from back to back defeats in the Community Shield against Chelsea (1-0) and in their opening Premier League match at Tottenham (1-0) with a resounding 5-0 home win over newly-promoted Norwich.
Just two games into the new Premier League season and there are already mounting issues at Arsenal. The Gunners have lost their opening two matches to both Brentford and Chelsea without scoring a goal - the worst start to any of the club's 118 seasons playing in the top four leagues in England. They have players missing through injury and illness including key men such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, and Willian.
Manchester City last faced Arsenal in February and secured a 1-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium thanks to an early Raheem Sterling header, which extended City's winning run at the time to 18 matches. The Gunners have lost at Etihad on their previous five visits.
Probable Line-UpsManchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Laporte, Dias, Walker; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Sterling, G.Jesus, Grealish
Pep Guardiola has already confirmed that Aymeric Laporte will start on Saturday after the Frenchman was rested against Norwich. He will complete the four man backline alongside Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias and Kyle Walker, given that Benjamin Mendy has been charged with four counts of rape and has been suspended by the club. Phil Foden is still sidelined as the youngster sustained a foot injury en route to the Euro 2020 final with England. Kevin De Bruyne also missed last time out but the Belgian could be passed fit for this contest.
Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Leno; Tierney, Holding, Mari, Tavares; Lokonga, Xhaka; Pepe, Odegaard, Saka; Aubameyang
£50 million summer signing Ben White tested positive to Covid on the eve of the Blues clash. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returned from a bout of coronavirus at the weekend and should be ready to start this time. The likes of Willian, Alexandre Lacazette and Alex Runarsson are still affected while Eddie Nketiah, Gabriel Magalhaes and Thomas Partey are all out injured. Martin Odegaard's visa issue will be sorted in time for him to make his second debut but the Norwegian is in contention with Emile Smith Rowe for the number 10 role.
