Pep Guardiola extended his superior record over Arsene Wenger as Manchester City outclassed Arsenal with a resounding 3-0 at the premier league clash at the Emirates with goals from Bernado Silva, David Silva and Leroy Sane. This was their second encounter within 5 days but Manchester club justified their cup dominance on Sundaywith a clean 3-0 victory over the inconsistent Arsenal side.
Arsene Wenger made changes to the side that lost 3-0 to Manchester city at the Carabao with the revert of formation from a 3-4-3 to a 4-2-3-1 formation which saw the recall of Petr Cech, Henrikh Mhikitaryan,Danny Welbeck and Kolasinac into the side. Pep Guardiola made the changes to the City squad with replacement of goal-keeper Bravo and injured Fernandinho with Elderson and Bernando Silva.
The game began with the host trying to get a grip on the game while being conscious as the players were a bit on a defence and counter-attack approach. Prior to this game, the gunners defence have been called to question. It took only 15 minutes for Manchester city to break Arsenal’s defence as Bernado Silva handed the away side the lead with a left curler.
The host responded and almost got back on level terms with Ramsey but his attempt was saved by in form Ederson. David Silva extend their led in the 23rd minute with a combination from Leroy Sane and Aguero teamwork as City tore Arsenal defence to shreds. Arsenal immediately respond with Xhaka’s free kick but Ederson was equal to the task. Arsenal’s intense pressure backfired as City converted to their possession to attack and this lead to a goal with Leroy Sane netting the third. Manchester could have made it 4 before the break but Aguero’s attempt from close range was denied by Petr cech. Arsenal had the chance to pull one back during the second interval but Aubamayang fluffed his line by missing from the spot. The Gabonese attacker have been struggling to justify the huge wage paid to secure his services from Dortmund.
Guardiola have proven strong grip on the fixture as he has successfully completed a hatrick of victory against his compatriot Arsene Wenger. Arsenal defence have been criticized lately and this sums it up. With the fans expression and with the number of attendance for the game, Arsene Wenger could be preparing for his exit as the Arsenal faithful might have expressed their feelings.
