Man City dominance against Arsenal give advantage in title race

0 14

Manchester City put four goals past Arsenal to get advantage in the Premier League title race.

Manchester City defeated Arsenal 4-1 at the Etihad stadium to boost their chance of winning the Premier League.

Prior to the match Arsenal had 5 points lead but Pep Guardiola side claimed 3 points to reduced it to 2 points with 2 games at hand.

Kevin De Bruyne scored two and set up the other for John Stones with the irrepressible Erling Haaland, who assisted both of De Bruyne’s goals, finally getting the goal that his performance deserved by adding the fourth in stoppage time.

Rob Holding had scored late on for Arsenal but the gap is down to two points and, crucially, City still have two games in hand. Talk of the treble will only increase now. For Arsenal, their first defeat since February is also their fourth game without a win. Hopes are fading.

Though Holding’s fine finish reduced the deficit to two late in the game, there was little prospect of a comeback, the contest turning into a procession. Those still hoping for a title race will be anxious that the rest of the season does not play out the same way.
