Manchester City have paved the way to defending their title. In the 4-1 win against Arsenal, who are still leaders, the “Citizens” burned off a football firework and now only need two points from two catch-up games to outperform the Londoners.
The outstanding player was Kevin De Bruyne, who converted a pass from Erling Haaland in the seventh minute to make it 1-0. Haaland as a preparer, that worked better in the top game: The Norwegian striker missed three big chances (28th, 36th, 41st) for the second city goal before the break.

That was achieved by John Stones (45+1), who headed in a De Bruyne free-kick. 2-0 at the break – a show of power by the champions against harmless capital city dwellers who only had a long-range shot from Thomas Partey (35th). As great as Mikel Arteta has developed at Arsenal in recent months, he was clearly at a disadvantage in the top duel against his former boss Pep Guardiola.
