Manchester City vs Arsenal – LIVE!

The defending champions host the Gunners as a high-profile lunchtime clash at the Etihad kicks off another bumper Premier League weekend before the first international break.

Arsenal head north looking to avoid a run of three successive league defeats to open a season for the first time since 1954/55, with listless losses to London rivals Brentford and Chelsea having piled the pressure on manager Mikel Arteta.

While Arsenal did bounce back by thrashing a young West Brom team 6-0 in the Carabao Cup in midweek, they have a pitiful recent record against Man City – losing each of their last eight league meetings.

However, Pep Guardiola’s City still boast plenty of firepower and will be favourites to extend their 11-match unbeaten run against Arsenal, having bounced back from a tricky start to 2021/22 by thumping newly-promoted Norwich last weekend.

About as bad a first half as Arsenal could have had.

Three goals conceded, awful defending and a red card too.

This could get very ugly for Arteta if City keep their foot on the gas.

Half-time
Manchester City 3-0 Arsenal

Difficult to envisage how that first half could have been any worse for Arsenal, who are getting hammered and down to 10 men.

A long, long second 45 minutes awaits as the pressure continues to mount on Arteta.

If there was a white towel to be thrown in, Arteta should do so now.

GOAL! Manchester City 3-0 Arsenal | Gabriel Jesus 43′
43 mins: Easy as you like and City have a third before half-time.

Ederson plays the ball straight through the middle to Torres, who has oceans of space to charge forward and find Grealish out left.

The former Aston Villa captain then glides through and lays it on a plate for Jesus to tap in ahead of Kolasinac.

Relentless from City… this really could be any score. Arsenal are all over the place and can’t get out.

40 mins: City are pushing hard for a third goal before the interval now as they seek to hammer home that numerical advantage.

Jesus lays the ball off for Torres, whose drive is blocked behind by Tierney.

Guardiola’s men are moving the ball at speed now as Arsenal’s 10 men look to make it to the interval at 0-2.

The wheels are fully off now and going back down the road to London.

Xhaka gets a red card and he can have no complaints – studs up, off his feet.

RED CARD | Granit Xhaka, Arsenal
35 mins: It goes from bad to very bad to disastrous for Arsenal 10 minutes before the break as they are down to 10 men.

It’s a familiar silly act from Xhaka, who has two feet off the ground as he dives in recklessly on Cancelo.

No hesitation from Atkinson as he pulls out the red card.

Madness from one of Arsenal’s most experienced players.

Arteta fuming, but he can have few complaints.

Xhaka claims he got the ball and there wasn’t contact with the defender, but you can’t tackle like that.

34 mins: Wonderful feet from Cancelo, who beats Cedric all ends up with a tidy nutmeg before scuffing a cross into the side netting.

That skill deserved a far better end product!

The floodgates have closed, for now, as City seem to have taken their foot off the gas.

Still zero joy for Arsenal, though, who haven’t had a shot on target yet.
