Manchester City vs. Arsenal, 2017 Premier League

Manchester City vs. Arsenal, 2017 Premier League”

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is aware of the threat he brings to the table, but wants to show he is capable of fighting against the best.

City have been flawless to start the season and have only dropped two points out of a possible 30 to open the season.

Arsenal haven't lifted the Premier League trophy since 2003-04 when the Gunners managed to go unbeaten throughout the season. People speak about Alexis Sanchez but, for us, Ozil's performance will be important as well.

Paul Ince is tipping Manchester City to thrash Arsenal at The Etihad on Sunday afternoon.

The Premier League returns this weekend with the global break looming large.

"We know United are playing against Chelsea, so it is another game to make more advances on one of them, or both of them".

Leroy Sane has had a hand in 11 goals in his last seven Premier League games - and has scored and assisted in four of his last five league games.

"When we go there, we want to defend well but you can not go there and only be focused on just defending".

A 24th loss against Arsenal would equal City's record number of Premier League defeats against any side. Pep Guardiola has come up with a team of players with the attitude "we will score more than our opponents". "We can not forget that he is 17 or 18 years old competing with the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Fernandinho, Yaya Toure and Bernardo Silva and that step to the first team is not easy", he added.

"Last season, we were not able to win one game away in the Champions League and this season we have won two, and hopefully against Shakhtar Donetsk we can do so again", he said.

City have won their last 14 games in a row in all competitions.

At this stage last season, Arsenal were in second place on goal difference with 23 points.

Arsenal finished outside the top four for the first time in 21 years last season and their start to the current campaign was indifferent.

"Fortunately, I am a lucky guy and I have a club where they give me time to do that, so I don't have the feeling that they don't trust me and that is fascinating".

Pep Guardiola has downplayed talk Manchester City could sign Alexis Sanchez in January - but has revealed he does have an admiration for another Arsenal star.

City have seen their sizeable investment richly rewarded, with nobody in the Premier League able to match De Bruyne's figures when it comes to creating opportunities for others.

Probability of away win: 14%.
