    THE MISSING MAN

    Kevin De Bruyne has been ruled out with an unspecified injury, and his recent form in this fixture proves just how much Manchester City will miss him.

    The Belgian has been involved in seven goals in his last eight Premier League starts against Arsenal (5 goals, 2 assists), and has has scored more goals against the Gunners than he has any other side in the competition.

    GOOD EVENING FROM MANCHESTER

    Welcome to our live coverage of tonight’s Premier League match between Manchester City and Arsenal.

    After their second-place finish last season, much was expected of City this time around.

    However, four points from the opening three games is the poorest return of a Pep Guardiola side in over a decade.

    Worse still for City, the Premier League’s 2019-20 Player of the Year, Kevin De Bruyne, has returned injured from international duty with his likely return still unknown.

    On a brighter note, Raheem Sterling has been declared fit for selection and there may yet be a first glimpse of Sergio Aguero since June after the Argentine striker recently returned to training.

    Arsenal’s performances have been something of a mixed bag so far, but they have only dropped points in defeat at Anfield during their first four fixtures.

    Certainly, former Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta has the Gunners on the right track, and he only has to go back three months to remind his squad of the time they saw off their opponents in the FA Cup semi-final.

    Kieran Tierney is likely to miss out this evening having been forced to self-isolate, but the north London club do have a new £45m man to call upon in midfield. Is it time for Arsenal to get the Partey started?

    We’ll have news of the two teams shortly before kick-off follows at 5.30pm.
