Pep Guardiola’s men rebounded from an opening loss to Tottenham to throttle Norwich City 5-0 and now will hope to heap woe on former assistant coach Mikel Arteta and Arsenal.

Prediction

Arsenal did rebound a little at midweek but the upshot of that is they had to play midweek. A rested Man City is without some key pieces but expect the hosts to have the most of everything. Man City 3-1 Arsenal.
