LONDON: A late deflected strike by super sub Gabriel Martinelly sealed the victory for the Gunners.

Arsenal stunned English Premier League (EPL) defending champions Manchester City 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium, in London. In doing so, the Gunners have put an end to a 15-match winless run against City.

Mikel Arteta’s side has done what no other Arsenal side has been able to do in eight years – that is, beating City in the Premier League. Incidentally, the loss for Pep Guardiola’s side is their second in a row since December 2018.

A late deflected strike by super sub Gabriel Martinelli sealed the victory for the Gunners, much to the delight of the home crowd. The Brazilian was introduced at the beginning of the second half to spark the home side forward.

The match did not live up to the billing as both sides adopted a conservative approach. Clear-cut chances were few in this top-of-the-table clash. City had marginal possession, the visitors had 51% of the ball possession to be precise.

However, the visitors could not create trouble for Arsenal as they were only able to register four shots at goal and only one was on target. Although Arsenal had less of the ball, they had 12 shots at goal, but only four of them were on target.

This was a rare match that lacked creativity and attacking prowess between the two exciting teams. Arsenal felt the absence of their key man Bukayo Saka, who is dealing with an injury.

The victory has put Arsenal on equal points with table toppers Tottenham Hotspur at 20. As it stands, City trails behind the two London sides by two points after eight matches.

With the FIFA break putting club football on hold, Guardiola would hope to get his side back on track while Arteta would be looking to continue building momentum after the FIFA break.
