Despite stumbling in the Champions League in midweek, Arsenal have rediscovered their consistent form in the Premier League that saw them run City close until the final weeks of last season. Currently joint second with Spurs, the Gunners smashed Bournemouth on the weekend with Kai Havertz getting his first goal for the club. The only real worries for Arteta this weekend are Bakayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, both of whom could miss out due to their respective fitness woes.

Man City began the season with six straight wins, which is new for Guardiola's side who are traditionally seen as slow starters. That run, however, was brought to a surprise halt by Gary O'Neil's rebellious Wolves side last week. City were caught out twice from counter attacks with Pedro Neto, in particular, causing City multiple problems. Rodri, the main man for City, will be missing again on Sunday as he serves the third game of his suspension, so Pep will need another tactical innovation to cope with an ambitious young Arsenal side. Will he rely on the disappointing Kalvin Phillips to step up?

John Stones is on the City bench and Bernardo Silva is back and played midweek after missing his previous three games.

Saka has not been named in my squad while Martinelli is on the bench.

How to watch the Arsenal vs Man City live stream wherever you are

As you'll read below, the Arsenal vs Man City live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual streaming service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long-term.

ExpressVPN

Speed, security and simplicity combine to make <a href="https://go.expressvpn.com/c/4550836/1330033/16063?subId1=hawk-custom-tracking&sharedId=hawk&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.expressvpn.com%2Fgo%2Fenglish-football" data-link-merchant="expressvpn.com"" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance, if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Peacock or another service and watch the game.

Sky Sports has the Arsenal vs Man City live stream in the U.K., so if you already have a Sky subscription that doesn't include Sports, you'll need to pay £15/month to add those channels. The game will be shown on Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League stations.

Whichever package you go for, you'll also gain access to coverage in 4K and HDR, so long as you also have an HDR-ready Sky Q box and HLG-compatible TV.

Sky Glass is another option. This gives you Sky TV within a 4K TV that has a built-in Dolby Atmos soundbar, and without the need for a dish. Prices start at £14/month for the TV, plus a Sky sub on top of that. 

If you don't want to shell out for a full Sky subscription, you could also consider Sports Membership from the Now streaming service. This gives you 24-hour access for £11.98 or month-long access for £34.99. And right now there's a special offer where if you commit to a year, you pay the equivalent of £26 a month.

All sounds great, right? But if you're not in the U.K., you can still follow the Arsenal vs Man City live stream by using one of the best VPN services, such as ExpressVPN.
