Manchester City put Arsenal to the sword with a 3-0 hammering in the English Premier League return on Wednesday night, 17th June, at the Etihad Stadium.
City dominated much of the game with goals from Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden sealing all the three points for the Citizens, against a 10-man Arsenal.
Arsenal centre back David Luiz saw a red card in the 49th minute into the second half following a mis-timed challenge on Riyad Mahrez in the Gunners’ box. Luiz’s mistake in the first half also led to Sterling scoring the first goal for City.
This game was intially postponed in March after Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta (former Man City assistant coach), tested positive for the coronavirus. This led to the postponement of the Premier League as a whole.
If the second-placed City had lost, Liverpool could have won the title with a victory at Everton on Sunday.
Now the runaway leaders still need two more wins to be crowned English champions for the first time in 30 years.
l Arteta’s men registered the sixth consecutive game without winning away from home. With this result, Manchester City rose to 60 points while Arsenal remained at 40 points.
In another match, Aston Villa and Sheffield United shared honours after equalising without goals. With the result, Sheffield maintain the sixth place with 44 points and Aston Villa in the 19th place with 26 points.
