Another dissapointing night from the North-London after a two beauty strike from Kevin De Bruyne and a goal from Raheem Sterling, securing a 0-3 win for the Blues on the first half.
The defeat increase the tension within the fans and a pressure to Freddie Ljungberg, a new replacement coach after Unai Emery. Unai Emery have been sacked by Arsenal after the longest less win since 1992, with Ljungberg in charge, things didn’t go as plan as Arsenal win only 1 out of 5 games while conceding 10 goals under the Swedish coach.
Here are the 3 talking points and analysis during the match at Emirates last night:
City still challenging for the PL title
It looks like Arsenal might have some home playing against Man City at the Emirates Stadium with first win over the last 7 premier league games. Their win over West Ham might give the fans a little joy, but that didn’t last long as Manchester city excellent performance gain them a 3-0 lead in the first 40 minutes of the game.
Pep Guardiola operate with the same tactic he uses when he play against Arsenal. But this time he start the lineup with an unusual formation (4-2-3-1) but still with this formation, it stills trouble the Arsenal defence.
Even with an early attempt from Gabriel Martinelli during the first half that was denied by Ederson. City still took the advantage and score their first goal from De Bruyne with a fine finish inside the box with only 2 minutes into the game. Later De Bruyne provide an assist to Sterling to make it 2-0 and 5 minutes before the first half another beautiful strike from De Bruyne giving the Blues a 3-0 lead.
A World Class Performance from De Bruyne
It’s a night to remember for Kevin De Bruyne as he produce a world class performance as a midfield. The Belgian midfield was involved with all the 3 goals for Manchester City, scoring 2 and assisting 1. Both his goal was from his brillant skills and it can clearly be seen that De Bruyne is one of the best midfielders in the world right now. No doubt that his performance against Arsenal were a 10/10.
