The attacking trio were not quite firing on all cylinders at St James' Park, but Leroy Sane will be among those trying to change that as they look to get back to winning ways.
Here, Sports Mole looks at how the German has fared against Arsenal in the past.
Sane has averaged more than a goal every other game against Arsenal in the Premier League, scoring three times - and assisting another - in five top-flight meetings.
The winger has drawn a blank in his two cup meetings with the Gunners, but in the league he has been deadly when this fixture has come around.
Even so, despite registering a goal and an assist at the Emirates Stadium last season, Sane was left on the bench for same fixture this term, coming on for a three-minute cameo as Man City ran out 2-0 winners.
Sane has won both of his previous home games against Arsenal, though, and scored a valuable equaliser in his very first meeting with Sunday's opponents as they went on to claim a 2-1 win at the Etihad.body check tags ::
