Man City hammer Arsenal to move two points off top

Man City - rapid news gh

At the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City outperformed Premier League leaders Arsenal and dealt the race for the championship a major psychological blow.

The fight that was supposed to determine the champion ended up being shockingly one-sided.

Erling Haaland and Kevin de Bruyne’s lethal connection propelled Pep Guardiola’s team, who are currently two points behind Arsenal with two games remaining.

After seven minutes, Haaland set De Bruyne up for a deft score. Arsenal then held off a barrage of attempts until John Stones headed in a corner in the last seconds of the first half. The goal was awarded by VAR after first being deemed offside.

Haaland, the City’s go-to scorer, was brilliant and again set up De Bruyne for the third goal in the 54th minute by sending a beautiful strike between the legs of Arsenal defender Rob Holding.

Holding gave Arsenal a late comeback before Haaland, who had earlier in the game been denied four chances by Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, made it a memorable evening with his 49th City goal.
