Arsenal face a tricky trip to Manchester this weekend, when they'll be greeted by a motivated Manchester City side on Saturday evening. Pep Guardiola's men have had a fortnight to stew over their 1-1 away draw against Leeds – two more dropped points – and target an emphatic response during this televised clash.

Will Mikel Arteta's side perform well to inflict more damage on a slow-starting City side? Or will they be overwhelmed by a team packed with quality, even with their best strikers sidelined. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Manchester City vs Arsenal Betting Tips

Sergio Aguero (knee) and Gabriel Jesus (muscle) are City's two key strikers and both remain sidelined with troublesome injuries. It means the sky Blues enter this weekend's clash with Raheem Sterling likely to deputise in a centre-forward role, though Liam Delap (17) was an unused substitute at Elland Road.

Sterling was their best player that evening against Marcelo Bielsa's men, but with more incision in the final third, he'd have scored a hat-trick – rather than just one goal against Leeds. It'll be interesting to see whether Bernardo Silva starts against Arsenal, having made a noticeable impact as a second-half substitute on October 3.

Benjamin Mendy was booked shortly after the half-hour mark and it's likely he'll be dropped after another sloppy defensive display. £40m summer signing Nathan Ake is likely to replace him, against an Arsenal side who exposed them on the flanks at Wembley three months ago.

Expect to see Bukayo Saka linking up with captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang down the left-hand side, a combination that has worked wonders recently.

Manchester City vs Arsenal Correct Score Predictions

After recording 23 shots with just one goal and a point to show for their efforts at Leeds, City want a response.

Arsenal have started well and in Arteta, they have the perfect head coach to outsmart Guardiola – though his players must step up against top opposition.

That's easier said than done and although they've held their own in recent months against the likes of Liverpool and City, I'm not entirely convinced. One thing I'm confident about though: this game has goals written all over it.
