One side is a title contender. The other is in free fall. Here’s how to watch Manchester City v Arsenal in Matchweek 3 of the Premier League season.

Ideally, Manchester City v Arsenal would be a match with mouthwatering implications for the Premier League standings on both sides.

This Matchweek 3, it doesn’t have that kind of flair. That’s not to say there aren’t interesting storylines to monitor.

Manchester City are riding high after a 5-0 demolition of Norwich. With an opening loss to Tottenham setting them back, they’ll be extra motivated to prove they’re still the team to beat in the EPL.

Arsenal fell flat in both of their first games as Brentford and Chelsea each picked up a 2-0 victory. Manager Mikel Arteta is a man on the hot seat and an upset over Manchester City may be his only path to salvation.
