Manchester City have taken their current Premier League winning streak to 11. Pep Guardiola’s team triumphed 2-1 at Arsenal in the Premier League’s first game of the year.
In this match of the 21st round of the English league, it was the gunners starting better, with Saka opening the scoring (31′). The home team continued on top after the break, but Mahrez restored equality (57′), converting a penalty: after analyzing the images, as instructed by the VAR, the referee punished Xhaka for a foul on Bernardo Silva.
Gabriel Magalhães saw two yellow cards (57′ and 58′) and was sent off, but the citizens were able to back the opponent to the wall. Even so, in a ball sent by De Bruyne to the opposite area, Rodri was happy and had the goal at his mercy, after a series of rebounds, shooting into the back of the goal (90+3′).
In this way, Manchester City reinforces its leadership: it adds 53 points and prepares to gain ground against Chelsea and/or Liverpool, who face each other this Sunday. As for Arsenal, they maintain 35 points, in 4th place, albeit with a game in hand.
