Sky Sports will broadcast a double dose of Premier League football this afternoon as Manchester City host Arsenal and Southampton travel Bournemouth.
City and Arsenal shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw in last season’s corresponding fixture, with first Sergio Aguero and then Kevin De Bruyne giving the hosts a lead, only for the Gunners to level through first Olivier Giroud and then Alexis Sanchez.
Arsenal are unbeaten in their last six games with Manchester City in all competitions. City’s last victory in this fixture was 6-3 at home in December 2013.
The last six Premier League meetings have produced 24 goals – an average of four per game.
Coverage starts at 3.30pm on Sky Sports 1 with live streaming on Now TV and Sky Go. Kick-off 4.00pm.
Sky’s coverage begins with Bournemouth v Southampton at 12.30pm with a 1.30pm kick-off.
