MCI vs ARS Dream11 Prediction
It's going to be a big one as Manchester City play hosts to Arsenal at the Eithad in the upcoming fixture of the Premier League. It hasn't been the most ideal start for Pep Guardiola as his side have secured just four points from the three games so far, with a win, defeat and a draw to their names. As for Mikel Arteta's Arsenal, they do look to seem to be the team with a plan and will be hoping to stay at the top half. The Gunners with three wins, a defeat and nine points on board, are in at the 4th spot. We can expect yet another cracker of a contest and here is the MCI vs ARS Dream11 Prediction for the fixture ahead.

Xhaka, deadline day signing Thomas Partey and Ceballos are expected to feature in central midfield. Willian, Lacazette and Aubameyang should be leading the charge up front for the visitors.
ARS Playing 11 (Probable)
Defenders- Walker, Dias, Laporte
Midfielders- Mahrez, Rodrigo, Dani, Foden
Forwards- Sterling (vc), Lacazette (c), Aubameyang
Raheem Sterling can play a pivotal role in the advanced region for Manchester City. Sterling has a goal, an assist and a pass accuracy of 87% from the last three appearances in the league.
Alexandre Lacazette has been on form ever since the start of the new season for Arsenal. The French forward has three goals and a pass accuracy of 78.3% from the last three appearances in the league season. He can be added to the MCI vs ARS Dream 11 Prediction side.
X Factors and Differential Picks
Phil Foden has two goals and an assist from the last four appearances for Manchester City and could once again pack a punch here.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang can once again prove to be the danger man in the attacking front for Arsenal. Aubameyang has a goal and an assist from the last four appearances in the league so far.
MCI vs ARS Match Prediction
Both sides have been involved in some goal fests in the recent past and we could expect yet another enthralling affair. However, Manchester City continue to display their defensive frailties which could lead to some problems against a quick counter attacking Arsenal unit. With that being said, the MCI vs ARS Today Match Prediction odds are in favour of a draw going ahead.
