Manuel Pellegrini's men have struggled somewhat on their travels in the campaign so far but their home form has propped up some disappointing away days. Of the seven home Premier League games so far, City have a 100 per cent record, scoring 29 goals and conceding just four.
After an impressive comeback against Bayern Munich in midweek, the hosts will be confident of securing another three points, they're currently 5/6 (1.83) with Paddy Power to do so but new customers can back the home side at 3/1 (4.0).

Arsene Wenger's side will come into this game full of confidence after a superb start to the season which sees them five points clear at the top of the Premier League.
The Gunners did lose 1-0 to Manchester United but on the whole their away form has been solid, albeit they have not faced any side inside the top eight and they are unlikely to face a tougher domestic away day than Saturday's assignment at the Etihad. The visitors are priced at 16/5 (4.20) with the draw a 13/5 (3.60) chance.
Some familiar names dominate the goalscorer markets with Sergio Aguero's form of 12 goals in 14 Premier League games mean he is an odds-on chance at 10/11 (1.91) to find the net. Yaya Toure netted twice in City's 3-2 win over West Brom recently and the 30-year-old is an industry best 17/1 to repeat that feat against the Gunners.
Arsenal's talisman Olivier Giroud has been in fine form too, netting seven goals and the France international is available at 12/5 (3.40) to score anytime, while Aaron Ramsey, who has eight league goals to his name this term is priced at 4/1 (5.0) to score his ninth at the Etihad.
While Arsenal have been in fine form of late, their away credentials have yet to be tested against the Premier League elite and with City having such a great record at the Etihad Stadium they are sure to be a popular selection with punters looking to start the weekend with a win.
