Why you should back Manchester City
The reigning champs were disappointed after their first Premier League match of the year and fell 1-0 to Tottenham Hotspur. However, Pep Guardiola's side bounced back by handing Norwich City a 5-0 trouncing the following week. Manchester City put away every shot it put on target and capitalized on the creative talents of Jack Grealish, Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling, and others.
Last year's title winners were also a steel trap on defense and didn't allow one shot on target against the Canaries. Arsenal has been starving for goals in league matches so far, so facing arguably the best defense in the Premier League doesn't bode well for the visitors. In addition, Manchester City is unbeaten its its last 11 league fixtures against the Gunners.
Why you should back Arsenal
Arsenal has had a tough time this season because of injuries and positive COVID-19 tests. The Gunners could get more help this weekend, though. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is training after testing positive earlier this month, Alexandre Lacazette is working his way back toward the starting 11, and Martin Odegaard's transfer is now complete.
Aubameyang and Lacazette were involved in more than half of Arsenal's goals last season, so the visiting team's scoring chances should rise significantly with at least one of them back in the squad. Arsenal nabbed a 6-0 win against West Brom in the EFL Cup behind an Aubameyang hat trick earlier this week. That momentum could carry the underdogs to another quality result on Saturday.
