Premier League matchup between Arsenal and Manchester City: match preview, team news, head-to-head comparison, and how to watch.  

Manchester City travels to North London to take on Arsenal in an effort to recover from a shocking loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend.

 

In their second match of the most recent UEFA Champions League group stage campaign, Pep Guardiola and his team traveled to east Germany on Wednesday night to face Marco Rose’s RB Leipzig.

 

With goals from Phil Foden, Julian Alvarez, and Jeremy Doku, the defending European champions defeated the German team 1-3 to take control of the group’s top spot.

This victory extended Manchester City’s lead.

 

As a result of an early own goal by Ruben Dias and a second-half counterattacking effort from Hwang Hee Chan, the Sky Blues’ last domestic game had a different outcome, with the Sky Blues dropping their first points of the season to Wolves.

 

On the other side of Sunday’s match are the Gunners, who enter the contest after losing to Lens 2-1 in the UEFA Champions League after Elye Wahi broke the score in the second half to give the French club the lead.

 

Details of the fixtures.

On Sunday, October 8 at 16:30 BST, Manchester City will play host to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

When they travel to the Emirates, Pep Guardiola will be without a few key players as John Stones regains match fitness after only making the bench against RB Leipzig in a European match.

 

After having surgery to treat a hamstring injury that he first suffered in the 2023 UEFA Champions League final and aggravated in this season’s Premier League opener against Burnley, Kevin De Bruyne is still out.

In early 2024, the Belgian is anticipated to return.

 

After raising both hands to Morgan Gibbs-White of Nottingham Forest and receiving an instant red card for “violent conduct,” defensive midfield mainstay Rodri will serve the last game of a three-game domestic football suspension.
