All the weekend action will be available to customers on DStv Compact and GOtv Supa+.
Arsenal are yet to defeat Manchester City in a league match since Pep Guardiola came to England seven seasons ago. The gunners ran out of steam to finish second behind City last season, having topped the table for the majority of the campaign.
Arteta’s men however managed to edge the Citizens in the Community Shield in August, courtesy of a penalty shootout. Both sides are struggling with injuries to key players ahead of the tie. Kevin Debryne is currently out on a long-term injury, while Rodri is suspended. Arsenal are battling with the fitness of their star man, Bukayo Saka, while Gabriel Martinelli is also a serious doubt.
Manchester City suffered their first league defeat of the season away at Wolves last week but remains top of the table with 18 points from 7 matches.
