Man City’s Epic Win Over Arsenal Puts Them on Track for a Premier League Title

Kevin de Bruyne scored twice as Manchester City won 4-1 against Arsenal on Wednesday, making it look like they have a really good chance of winning their third consecutive Premier League title. Even though they are still in second place, the win cut Arsenal’s lead to only two points and Manchester City has two more games to win over them. Their manager Pep Guardiola is now so close to bringing home a great victory by getting the team trophies in three different categories. These include the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup!

Arsenal weren’t able to beat City in a game that would have played a big part in deciding who won the championship.

Mikel Arteta’s team had been doing well for most of the season, but couldn’t get back from De Bruyne scoring for City early on.

Aaron Ramsdale did great work trying to keep Arsenal in it, however, John Stones scored another goal late in the first-half to make it 2-0 for City.

Nine minutes into the second half, Kevin De Bruyne scored early in the game and sealed the deal for Manchester City. Even though Rob Holding managed to score a goal late in the game (86th minute), it was too little too late and couldn’t change the result of 4-1. In stoppage time, Erling Haaland put up one more point on the scoreboard. This is already Manchester City’s third victory against Arsenal this season and their winning streak extends to eight times now!

Arsenal really needed to win the game so that it could stay in charge of the competition for a title. This is because they had some very bad luck with three ties in a row against Liverpool, West Ham and Southampton which stopped them from winning the championship for 19 years. On the other hand, City was continuing on an unprecedented 16-game streak without a single defeat in any type of event and their performance is at its best.

The team had a lot of confidence right from the beginning and they were leading 2-0 at halftime. They could have scored even more goals if they hadn’t wasted the first 45 minutes. City asked for a penalty twice and then De Bruyne got a fast break through which was like a warning that things were going to keep getting better.

John Stones was able to kick the ball far away from Arsenal’s territory and Erling Haaland received it. He then passed the ball to Kevin De Bruyne, who took a shot from 20 meters away into the goal, scoring for Manchester City.

De Bruyne almost scored his second goal in a different breakaway opportunity, but Ben White managed to block it in time.

City kept trying as Haaland had 3 attempts at shooting but Arsenal defended well and only ended up behind by one goal heading into half-time.

In the first-half, when the visitors were just about to defend their side from scoring, Stones scored a goal from De Bruyne’s free kick. But this goal was initially ruled out for being offside, however after reviewing it on VAR (Video-Assistant Referee), the goal was finally accounted for.

After that, within 10 minutes of the second half, De Bruyne once again scored a goal with Haaland assisting him by playing him in and he slipped a close-range shot right past Ramsdale.

The game seemed over after that but yet Arsenal managed to score one last consolation goal by Holding before time ran out.

Erling Haaland scored his 49th goal of the season at the end of the game, making it clear that City had won.
