Good evening and welcome to Nigerianeye's live text coverage of the Premier League clash between Arsenal and Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium.

These two sides met just four days ago when Man City claimed the first major trophy of the season by cruising to a 3-0 win over the Gunners in the EFL Cup final at Wembley.

Arsenal now sit 10 points adrift of the Champions League places too, whereas Man City could restore their 16-point gap at the top of the table this evening.

Make sure you don't miss a moment of the action courtesy of our minute-by-minute updates below.

Right, the players are out on this freezing night at the Emirates, so let's have a quick recap of the team news before we get started...


ARSENAL: Cech; Bellerin, Koscielny, Mustafi, Kolasinac; Xhaka, Ramsey, Ozil, Mkhitaryan, Welbeck; Aubameyang

MANCHESTER CITY: Ederson; Walker, Kompany, Otamendi, Danilo; Gundogan, De Bruyne, Silva; Bernardo, Sane, Aguero

7 min Ederson is alert here, and he has to be. Ramsey slides a pass into the box which Aubameyang is interested in, but Ederson sweeps up the danger.

5 min Arsenal will be relatively happy with the start they have made to this match, and they already look more capable of causing City problems tonight than they did at Wembley. Still very early days, though.

3 min There are an awful lot of empty seats at the Emirates Stadium this evening, which is no doubt down to the weather but could also be a reflection of Arsenal's recent poor form.

1 min KICKOFF: Here we go, then! Arsenal get us underway at the Emirates!
