ARSENAL 0 MAN CITY 1 Sterling's early header edges City past Gunners for 18th win in a row

Posted 5 days ago 21 Feb 2021 by MrBoss

Manchester City extended their winning run to 18 games as they continued their impressive march towards the Premier League title with victory at Arsenal.


The visitors have not dropped a point since 15 December and looked confident right from the outset, taking the lead with just two minutes on the clock as Raheem Sterling somehow managed to outjump Rob Holding to head in Riyad Mahrez's cross.


City had four shots to Arsenal's none in the opening quarter of an hour and it looked like the Gunners were in danger of being on the end of a heavy defeat as Pep Guardiola's side poured forward at every opportunity.


To Arsenal's credit they weathered that early storm and grew into the game as Kieran Tierney tested Ederson with a strong effort from distance, while there were glimpses of a threat on the break through the pace of Bukayo Saka.


City failed to kick on after the break although still looked the most likely to add to their lead as Kevin de Bruyne - making his first start in over a month - lifted an effort just wide while Ilkay Gundogan saw a shot saved by Bernd Leno before Joao Cancelo clipped a lovely strike inches past the post late on.


In the end, a second goal was not needed as City took the three points that means they remain 10 points clear at the top of the table with 13 games remaining.


Arsenal, meanwhile, are 10th and six points off the top six.
