When City last met the Gunners in April a 1-0 defeat looked to have killed off their title hopes, after Balotelli was sent off on 90 minutes for making a studs-up challenge on Alex Song.
"I thought it would be a six-game ban after that game. Three for the red card and three for what he did to Song," the Daily Mail quoted Mancini, as saying.
Asked if was ready to sell Balotelli due to his on and off field buffoonery, a smiling Mancini replied: "My patience with him is endless."
