Arsenal has Alexandre Laczette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Martin Odegaard available, though only the latter two are expected to start.

Aubameyang appears to be safe to lead the line after scoring a hat-trick against West Brom on Wednesday night. With Odegaard in the No.10 position, Emile Smith Rowe may have to play out wide.

After Bukayo Saka suffered a serious knee injury against West Brom, Nicolas Pepe is on standby. According to Mikel Arteta, Ben White will miss out again in another setback for the Gunners.

Kieran Tierney was not risked in midweek, but he should be fit to play at the Etihad. Aaron Ramsdale is not expected to take over in goal for Bernd Leno just yet.

Manchester City vs Arsenal Prediction

After losing their first game of the season Man Cty defeated Norwich 5-0 last weekend. With a 6-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday,  Arsenal earned their first win of the season.

Arsenal has now lost five games in a row at the Etihad. The timely returns of Aubameyang and Lacazette will be invaluable to Arsenal on the attacking front, and the Gunners are in a far better position than they were against Chelsea.

However, Arteta faces the same old problems, as his team should put up a better fight but will be blown away by the reigning champions’ superiority.
