Arsenal will hope to bring Manchester City’s sensational start to the season to a halt when they travel to the Etihad today.

Pep Guardiola’s side are currently unbeaten in their opening 16 games in all competitions, and are five points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

City have won 14 consecutive games, a new club record, and have already scored 49 goals this term.

Arsenal are also in fine form, having lost just one in their last 13 games in all competitions, but they remain nine points behind their opponents today.


City have no new injury concerns, with Vincent Kompany remaining on the sidelines and Benjamin Mendy a long-term absentee.

Wenger will be hoping Sead Kolasinac recovers from a hip injury in time for the game today, while Shkodran Mustafi, Santi Cazorla, Calum Chambers, Danny Welbeck, David Ospina are all still sidelined.

Also, Jose Mourinho travels to Stamford Bridge with Manchester United to face his former side in the Premier League clash today.

Chelsea will hope to bounce back from a 3-0 loss at Roma during the Champions League in midweek. Antonio Conte’s side currently sits in fourth place, four points behind Jose Mourinho’s side.

United are in second place, five points behind league leaders Manchester City, and have won their last three games in all competitions without conceding.

The Blues have a good recent record against their opponents, having lost just once in their last 15 home Premier League games against United.

N’Golo Kante could make his return from injury for the hosts and he could line up alongside Danny Drinkwater, who would be making his Premier League debut at the club. Victor Moses is the only definite absentee for Conte.
