Match Report: Manchester City defeat Arsenal to take EPL lead

Manchester City defeated Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium, moving them into first place in the Premier League table.

Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring in this action-filled affair in the 24th minute, capitalising on an error by Takehiro Tomiyasu and lifting the ball over Aaron Ramsdale into the net.

Arsenal equalised from the spot in the 42nd minute, Bukayo Saka sending Ederson the wrong way after the goalkeeper fouled Eddie Nketiah in the box.

Pep Guardiola’s side thought they had been awarded a penalty of their own in the 57th minute, but VAR ruled that Erling Haaland was offside prior to being fouled by Gabriel Magalhaes.

Fifteen minutes later though, Jack Grealish gave the visitors the lead for good. Haaland added City’s third 10 minutes after that to put the game out of reach.

Arsenal fall out of first place for the first time since August, now having failed to win three straight league matches.
