Arsenal travel to Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City this weekend with the entire football world wondering if the Gunners really have what it takes to mount a title challenge this season.

The Gunners have been one of the better teams in the Premier League so far this season and currently sit third, unbeaten and having scored eight goals and having conceded just one, whereas Manchester City have played poorly and have stuttered to recent results against Liverpool and Stoke City.

However, and it must be said, both teams currently have the same amount of points, are both unbeaten and this game will go a long way to determining both teams' credentials as title challengers.

Arsene Wenger's side are on the crest of a wave having won in Montpellier in the Champions League on Tuesday night as Manchester City snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by conceding two late goals to lose against Real Madrid.

So as we head towards the Etihad Stadium all the momentum is with the North London side with Roberto Mancini in the unusual place of needing to motivate his team to get them back on track.

Here we look at six key battles for Manchester City vs. Arsenal.
