How to watch Man City vs Arsenal: Live stream tonight’s all-important Premier League clash online

Aguero and Sane start on the bench as Man City take on Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium at 8:15pm BST tonight

Manchester City host Arsenal behind closed doors at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester tonight. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15pm and the game will be broadcast live on Sky Sports and Now TV Sky Sports Pass in the UK from 8pm. Both services have huge limited-time discounts.

It’s been a long wait for the Premier League to return but football is finally back after the extended and unforeseen coronavirus break that lasted more than three months. Both teams will be allowed five substitutes, but only three subs breaks in order to prevent disruption during the game.

After a turbulent season, Arsenal are currently sitting in ninth place on the Premier League table, but a win on Wednesday will take them ahead of Spurs who are in eighth place because The Gunners have a game in hand. Arsenal are the only team with an undefeated Premier League record this year.

Defending Premier League champions Manchester City, meanwhile, are currently in second place behind Liverpool who resume the season with a huge 23-point advantage at the top of the table. Guardiola will be more concerned about Leicester City who are currently just four points behind them in third place.

Man City vs Arsenal: Confirmed line-ups

Man City: Ederson, Walker, Garcia, Laporte, Mendy, De Bruyne, Gundogan, D Silva, Mahrez, Jesus, Sterling.

Man City (subs): Carson, Otamendi, Zinchenko, Rodri, B Silva, Fernandinho, Foden, Aguero, Sane.

Arsenal: Leno, Bellerin, Mustafi, Mari, Tierney, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Nketiah, Willock, Saka, Aubameyang.

Arsenal (subs): Martinez, Luiz, Kolasinac, Ceballos, Maitland-Niles, Lacazette, Pepe, Nelson, Martinelli.
