Manchester City were magnificent all night as they dealt a crushing blow to Arsenal’s Premier League dream with a 4-1 win at the Etihad Stadium which puts them in maybe firm control of the title race.
Midfielder Kevin De Bruyne scored two and did set up the other for John Stones with the irrepressible Erling Haaland, who assisted both of De Bruyne’s goals, finally getting the goal for which his performance deserved by adding the fourth in stoppage time.
Although Rob Holding had scored late on for Arsenal but the gap right now is down to two points while City still have two games in hand.
Talk of the treble will only heat up. As for the Gunners, their first defeat since February is also their fourth game without a win as hopes at the moment are fading.
