Arsenal defense was all over the place with Manchester city exploring the fragile defense.Trips to Manchester haven’t been a good hunting ground for Arsenal with their worst defeat coming in the hands of City’s neighbor Manchester united in an 8-2 defeat which ironically happened on the Same date.Ferran Torres got the second for the citizens after short free kick from Gundogan with Cedric missing the ball.
Xhaka was sent off after a two-footed challenge on Cancelo, although It looked like the Swiss had won the ball.

Gabriel Jesus got the third for Guardiola’s side with the absence of xhaka handing them the midfield numeric advantage.
Arsenal were seeing little of the ball with their opponents dominating possession relinquishing any chance of them getting back in the game. The hosts pressure and dominance ultimately paid off after Ferran Torres who was unmarked in the box headed a Riyad Mahrez’s cross in off the post getting his brace in the process.

This was the gunner’s worse start to a season in sixty seven years, after two nil opening match defeats to newly promoted Brentford and their London rivals Chelsea.This left little to be desired after their six nil emphatic win over a young championship Westbrom side in the league cup.
In contrary Manchester city seem to have found their form after Son’s solitary goal was enough to hand them their first defeat of the season against Tottenham.However they became the first team to score five goals in the last three of their home matches against Everton(last season),Norwich and Arsenal.The champions will be in good spirits especially after missing out on Ronaldo who chose to join their city rivals Manchester united on his second spell at the club.
Pressure continues to mount on Arsenal’s manager after spending big during the transfer window with no results to show up for it.

Manchester city manger Pep Guardiola.

However Guardiola had this to say about his former assistant Arteta,
“He’s beyond a good manager. We were sad when he left. Sometime people expect results immediately. The squad he played today – they had 6, 7 or 8 injured. Important players like Ben White, Thomas Partey. If they trust him they’ll do a good job at Arsenal.”
