Manchester City 3 Vs 1 Arsenal
5 things we learnt as Guardiola’s men continue dominance
There is no stopping Manchester City just yet as they ran out 3-1 winners over Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday, November 5.
These are five things we learnt from the game
1. Manchester City are really good
If you had any doubt on how good Manchester City have been this season, this win against Arsenal will obliterate that unsureness.
Pep Guardiola’s men dominated from start to finish and even when Arsenal got a whim of hope with the goal from Alexandre Lacazette to make the score 2-1, City were never bothered.
2. Arsenal are a decent side
Many Premier League observers would have been expecting a thrashing from Manchester City today but while 3-1 is still a huge scoreline, it does not reflect the true nature of the game neither does it paint the true picture of Arsenal’s resilience.
For the three goals they conceded, Arsenal were victims of a goalkeeping error, a soft penalty and an offside goal. They fought and on a better day result would have been better.
When Arsene Wenger rejected all advances from Manchester City last summer to keep Alexis Sanchez, it was games like this the Frenchman had in mind. Big games require big players to step and deliver but Sanchez and Mesut Ozil have so far failed Arsenal this season. It’s not entirely their faults, but if they can’t be that extra quality, then Arsenal will be fine without them.
