It has been a positive pre-season for the Sky Blues, with victories over AC Milan and Sunderland, as new manager Manuel Pellegrini assesses his squad.
Sergio Aguero could make his first City appearance since the friendly clash with Chelsea in New York on May 25 after returning to full training following an injury layoff.
Arsenal's pre-season has been one of frustration in the transfer market, but Olivier Giroud has impressed over the summer with seven goals in five games.
He could partner the Gunners' sole summer signing Yaya Sanogo, a 20-year-old French striker, up front.

Arsenal: Szczesny; Jenkinson, Sagna, Mertesacker, Gibbs; Arteta, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Giroud; Walcott, Sanogo
