Arsenal’s Premier League hope dented in massive 4-1 loss to Manchester City
Manchester City dealt a devastating blow to Arsenal’s hopes of winning a first premier league title in 19 years as they dismantled the North-London side 4-1 this evening.
A double strike from Kevin De Bruyne, and one each from john stones and Erling Haaland earned city a vital victory as they cut Arsenal’s lead at the top of the table to just two points, with Pep Guardiola’s side still having two games in hand.
City took the lead after just seven minutes when Haaland played through de Bruin who slotted past Aaron Ramsdale and after receiving the ball from Haaland, De Bruyne drove forward and fired past the Arsenal ‘keeper from the edge of the box.
Stone’s then headed home a De Bruyne free-kick on the edge of half-time, with a lengthy VAR check ruling him onside.
De Bruyne then rounded out a brilliant individual display and an emphatic victory for city by burying goal number three after once again being set up by Haaland.
Rob Holding did get one back for Arsenal in the 86th minute, but it was nothing more than a consolation as Haaland fired home his 49th goal of the season in injury time.
