93'
FT: Arsenal 0-3 Man City! Some boos from the crowd at the end and it was straight forward for Guardiola's men. There were no goals in the second half, but the game was lost for the Gunners in the first 40 minutes. De Bruyne scored twice and assisted Sterling to give Man C three much needed points. Arsenal once again disappointed. That's all from us, thanks for your company and see you again soon!
