The Gunners were beaten by newly-promoted Brentford on the opening night of the campaign and then found themselves outclassed by Chelsea at the Emirates last Sunday to start the 2021/22 season with successive defeats.
A visit to the champions looks like another tough ask but Mikel Arteta’s side can at least be buoyed by a 6-0 thumping of a young West Brom side in the Carabao Cup in midweek.
City have already come unstuck against north London opposition once this season, losing 1-0 at Tottenham in their opener, but they responded by hammering Norwich last weekend.
