Two of the big favourites for the Barclays Premier League clash this Saturday (September 13th), as Arsenal host Manchester City.

BT Sport subscribers can watch the lunchtime fixture (kick-off 12:45pm) live, as the reigning champions travel to a side that finished fourth in 2013-14.

Both Arsenal and Man City slipped up in their last league outing, with the Gunners being held by newly-promoted Leicester City and the Blues suffering a shock home defeat to Stoke City.

As such, both sides will be extra-motivated to get three points on the board at the Emirates Stadium this weekend.

City boss Manuel Pellegrini was angered by the manner of his side's defeat to Stoke, accusing his players of complacency.

He suggested they had one eye on upcoming fixtures against Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Chelsea, rather than concentrating on the job in-hand.

“I talked with the players and told them before we start thinking about [those games], it was very important to win against Stoke and maybe that would be tougher than any of those games," the Chilean stated.

Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger was similarly disappointed by his side's showing in the 1-1 draw away at Leicester.

His response was to splash out £16 million on Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck, who celebrated his move with two goals in England's recent win in Switzerland.

BT Sport viewers have a host of other games to look forward to this weekend, starting with Raith Rovers v Rangers from the Scottish Championship at 7:45pm on Saturday September 12th.

There are two games from Italy's Serie A on Saturday - Empoli v Roma at 5pm and Juventus v Udinese at 7:45pm - while Borussia Monchengladbach take on Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga at 5:30pm and St Etienne face Caen in France's Ligue 1 at 7pm.

BT Sport fans have plenty more European action to enjoy on Sunday September 14th, starting with Fiorentina v Genoa at 2:30pm, followed by Vitoria Guimaraes v FC Porto at 4pm.

Hannover 96 v Hamburg is live on the pay-TV service at 7:45pm, before Evian TG host Marseille at 8pm.
