Pep Guardiola's Manchester City will be looking for a fresh start to their Premier League 2020-21 campaign after the international break when they welcome Arsenal to the Etihad for their matchweek 5 fixture on Saturday.
Former champions Manchester City have had a disappointing start to their season, with one win, one loss and a draw in their three matches. Football fans in India can watch the Premier League on TV and live streaming.
Guardiola will be particularly disappointed with his team's tame 5-2 loss to Leicester City just before last week's international break.
City may have to work around a few first-team injuries with both Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling picking up knocks during their international duty for Belgium and England, respectively.
Arsenal, meanwhile, have been in good form winning three of their four fixtures this league season.
Gunners coach Mikel Arteta, who was previously Guardiola's assistant at City, has already proven he can go toe to toe with his former mentor. Arteta masterminded a memorable victory over Man City in the FA Cup semi-final last season.
Arsenal fans can also look forward to a club debut for deadline day signing Thomas Partey in the match. Kieran Tierney, though, is set to miss out due to mandatory self-isolation after his Scotland teammate Stuart Amstrong tested positive for COVID-19 while on international duty.
For Liverpool fans, a tasty Merseyside Derby awaits at the Goodison Park. Jurgen Klopp's men were shocked 7-2 by Aston Villa in their last outing and may have a challenge at hand against Carlo Ancelotti's new-look Everton, who are undefeated this season and currently top the table.
