Manchester City secured a big win behind closed doors on the first night of the Premier League’s return as they humbled Arsenal 3-0. Goals by Sterling (45’+2 minutes), De Bruyne (51′ minutes pen) and Foden (90’+1) did the magic.
De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and David Silva were all denied early goal by Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno, who’s display on the goal post was very impressive last night. But the display was unlock by inevitable City who moved ahead when Luiz’s defense mistake gifted Raheem Sterling a chance from close range.
With this win for City side means EPL leaders Liverpool will remain six points away from winning the EPL title, thus writing off potential celebrations in Sunday’s Merseyside derby when they win.
Raheem Sterling who had a good game last night became the first Premier League player to score a goal in the month of June in the English top-flight since Sheffield United Walter Rickett, scored against Stoke on 14 June, 1947.
Sterling also scored in his 50th home club game in all competitions against Arsenal.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, speaking to Sky Sports says “Everything went wrong from the first minute of the game. Every possible accident that could have happened hopefully happened today on the pitch.
His reaction to David Luiz Red Card and defense error on the pitch. “My opinion on David Luiz hasn’t changed. It won’t change because he had a difficult performance last night, he is someone that is very honest and straight forward”.
