Arsenal 0-3 Manchester City: Gunners Pay Heavily for United Win

In spite of what online betting review sites anticipated, Arsenal suffered a humiliating evening in the hands of Manchester City as they were made to concede three consecutive times without reply. It looked like we got posecuted fo the sin of United who inflicted pain on their rivals last weekend.

Gabriel Martinelli set the ball rolling as early as 30 seconds into the game. The Brazilian raced forward before attempting a strike which was pushed out for a corner kick by Ederson. Unfortunately, that will be our last shot on target from the encounter.

Manchester City made no delay in responding to the threat as they took the lead in less than a minute later. Jesus received the ball from Fernadinho, cuts it back for De Bruyne and he smashed the opener into the roof of the net.

Martinelli was close once again but the visiting goalkeeper was quick to push out. Nicolas Pepe's rebound was blocked and Pep Guardiola's men pushed forward. The scorer of the first goal turned provider, sqauring one for Raheem Sterling to score from close range.

Disaster struck for us close to halftime. First, it was Sead Kolasinac that got injured and before he could get off to be replaced by Bukayo Saka, De Bruyne curled one in to earn himself a brace. He would have loved to get his hattrick on the brink of the break but Bernd Leno ensured that it ended 0-3 with his save.

The second half started and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang headed one in an attempt to begin the comeback process. Unfortunately, it was a mission impossible. The Gabonese international fired one wide afterwards.

We would have conceded more from Riyad Mahrez and Jesus if not for our German goalkeeper who came to our rescue on those occasions.

No win, three points lost at home, no clean sheet and the tough times continue. We remain ninth on the Premier League table pending when we visit Everton for our next league match by 12:30pm on Saturday.
