Manchester City vs Arsenal is set to be an explosive encounter taking place in the English Premier League on Sunday. The match kicks off at 11 a.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
Last season's Premier League Champions, Manchester City have gotten off to a stuttering start to their new campaign with just 8 points from their opening 4 games. They are already five points behind Chelsea who gained a last gasp victory on Saturday against Stoke. If City can beat Arsenal on Sunday they will move back to within touching distance of Chelsea, just two points adrift.
However, City will likely be missing influential midfielder Samir Nasri, who has been a key player in their rise to the summit of the English game. Nasri would have been playing his former club had he made the game, but he suffered a hamstring injury during City's 3-2 Champions League defeat away to Real Madrid during the week.
Nasri though is not thought to be a serious casualty and he should be back in action soon. City manager Roberto Mancini said: "I do not think he will be ready for Sunday. We will try but it is difficult. I hope he will be okay for next week."
City came away from the Bernabeu earlier this week empty handed after Real Madrid scored two goals in the closing minutes if their tie to snatch the win. The result was a bitter blow to City and perhaps showed the side's inexperience at the top European level. They will want to address those concentration issues and ensure that they do not give the Gunners similar chances to punish their defense on Sunday.
These two sides met three times last season with City winning 1-0 twice and Arsenal winning by the same scoreline when they met in April. Sunday's game is sure to be a similarly tight affair, with Arsenal hoping to end City's immense unbeaten run at home, which now runs back 31 English Premier League games.
