Reigning Champions Manchester City made a statement of intent in the title race with a convincing 4-1 victory over Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium. Kevin De Bruyne’s stunning opener set the tone for the rest of the match, with John Stones doubling the lead before the break. De Bruyne added a third in the second half to put the match beyond doubt and move City within two points of the top of the table with two games in hand.

Manager Pep Guardiola, who acknowledged the role of the crowd in the lead-up to the match, was delighted with the performance and is now optimistic that the title is within his side’s grasp. He said: “We know winning will give us a step to putting it completely in our hands. The Premier League is 11 months working, working, working. And we want to take this opportunity. We cannot do it alone. Hopefully all the Etihad will be full three hours before the game.”

As City close in on yet another league title, it’s a great testament to the work done by manager Arteta and his team, who defied expectations to compete toe-to-toe with the reigning champions. Despite this loss, the Gunners have had an impressive season and will be looking to finish the campaign strongly.
