MCI vs ARS Dream11 Prediction: Manchester City are set to host Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday in a highly-anticipated English Premier League fixture. Regardless of the outcome, it will be a game of beautiful football between two top sides. Arsenal are looking increasingly stronger under Arteta this season and continue to impress each game whilst City, on the other hand, do not seem at the races as of yet. But this could all change come the weekend, with City in desperate need of a win and what better way to do it than against a top team in top form. It could be argued that Arsenal did crumble during their first big test this season, their 3-1 loss against Liverpool, and a break from club football could be exactly what City needed to kickstart their season. With potential absentees such as Tierney and Aubameyang, City should be considered favourites, and they have a habit of really punishing Arsenal.

Manchester City Team News
Manchester City made a delayed start to their 2020/21 campaign after participating in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals last term. So far in the Premier League, the Citizens have turned out thrice, managing just win. Indeed, having failed to win their last two games, Pep Guardiola & co. find themselves in unfamiliar territory, languishing at 14th on the table.
Injury update, unavailability
Kevin De Bruyne, strikers Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero, winger Raheem Sterling and left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko are all doubts for this game.
MCI Playing 11 & Subs (probable)
Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Mendy; Foden, Rodri, Gundogan; Bernardo, Mahrez, Sterling
Subs (probable): Silva, Cancelo, Hernandez
Arsenal Team News
Arsenal, on the other hand, have been reasonably solid at the start of the 2020/21 season. While the Gunners have not exactly set the stage alight in the final third, they have become a hard side to get the better of, which has reflected in the way they have won close games. Three wins in four have taken Mikel Arteta’s men to fourth on the Premier League table, a good base to build on.
Injury update, unavailability
Mikel Arteta will be unable to call upon the services of centre-backs Shkodran Mustafi, Calum Chambers, Pablo Mari and Gabriel Martinelli.
ARS Playing 11 & Subs (probable)
Leno; Bellerin, Luiz, Gabriel, Tierney; Ceballos, Thomas, Saka; Willian, Lacazette, Aubameyang
Subs (probable): Willock, Nelson, Pepe

Who will win MCI vs ARS Today Match Prediction Football
Typically in recent years, Arsenal have looked like almost ideal opposition for the way Man City play, but that is changing with Arteta at the helm. City are in poor form themselves too and the visitors will arrive at the Etihad with genuine belief that they can do a job on their hosts, as Leicester did. It is a match which could go either way, so we’re sitting on the fence with an entertaining score draw. We predict a 2-2 draw in today match prediction.
