Manchester City vs Arsenal live stream and match preview

The Premier League's top two finally meet for the first time this season as leaders Arsenal entertain reigning champions Manchester City.

Recent results have left this one tantalisingly poised, with the Gunners' advantage down to just three points after they drew with Brentford on Saturday. That said, they do have a game in hand, and a return to winning ways in their biggest game of the campaign so far would only serve to reinforce their title credentials.

City haven't been at their utterly unstoppable best of late, although they do enter this encounter off the back of a 3-1 win over Aston Villa on Sunday. Last week's financial charges have left a cloud hanging over the club, but for now, Pep Guardiola and co. will be squarely focused on blowing the title race open.

Kick-off is at 7:30pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League (opens in new tab) wherever you are.

Team news

One would expect Mikel Arteta to name an unchanged Arsenal starting 11 for the seventh league game running. The Gunners remain without the injured Gabriel Jesus, Emile Smith Rowe and Mohamed Elneny, but Reiss Nelson could be in contention after returning to training earlier this month.

As for City, Pep Guardiola reverted to a back three against Villa and sprung his latest tactical surprise by deploying Bernarndo Silva as an inverted left-back – which seemed to work. The injured John Stones is the visitors' only confirmed absentee.


Arsenal come into this clash on their worst run of the season – but that the run is two league games without a win tells you all you need to know about how superb they've been this term. The Gunners are winless in three in all competitions – having lost at City in the fourth round of the FA Cup last month – but were unlucky not to beat Brentford at the weekend, falling foul of a high-profile VAR mistake.

City, meanwhile, have been in inconsistent form by their standards since the World Cup, winning five, drawing one and losing two in the league. They've also lost their last three away matches in league and cup – the last of which also saw them travel to North London, where they went down 1-0 to Tottenham.


Anthony Taylor will be the referee for Arsenal vs Manchester City.


Arsenal vs Manchester City will be played at the 60,704-capacity Emirates Stadium in London.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee (opens in new tab)
