Man City see off Arsenal
Manchester City faced a trip to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon as they looked to make it 18 wins in a row across all competitions.
And when all was said and done at the Emirates, this is exactly what Pep Guardiola’s side managed.
Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez combined inside two minutes to fire the Sky Blues into the lead.

From there, Arsenal were able to keep a usually fierce Man City attack fairly quiet, though the Gunners offered little at the other end.
This eventually resulted in the final whistle blowing with the score at 1-0, ensuring Man City’s 10-point lead atop of the PL is intact for another week.
Guardiola on Sergio Aguero
Following the win over Arsenal, Pep Guardiola has been speaking about Sergio Aguero.
The Argentine, after a lengthy injury layoff, has been on City’s bench in their last three league outings.
However, Aguero is yet to make an appearance since his return, with the City faithful no doubt wondering when their star striker will be back in action.
When speaking on Sunday, however, though Guardiola stated he was looking forward to putting Aguero back in the side, he also urged caution when it comes to rushing the hitman back:
“I am looking forward to putting him in. We cannot forget he was a long time injured and you get rhythm when you play minutes.
“But he deserves to play and I want it. I want to say keep working hard and your time is coming. “It’s about his physical condition – he was one year injured; he only played a few minutes.
“I want to be sure for him – for us as well – but for him.”
