Commentary
  • 90'

    Saka does well on the left in linking with Smith-Rowe and plays a cross into the box but it's too heavy for any teammate.

  • 90'

    CHANCE FOR CITY! De Bruyne finds Sterling inside the left channel and he should score, but he fires across goal and wide of the post.

  • 90'

    Full-time: Arsenal 0-3 City. A humiliating home defeat for Arsenal to a City side who could have won by a much greater margin. De Bruyne (2', 40') and Sterling (15') got the goals.

  • 89'

    City have had 64% possession away from home in the second half here as they easily control the game.

  • 86'

    Chance! Arsenal give the ball away inside their own half, Sterling finds Mahrez and the Algeria winger brings a save out of Leno from a good position.

  • 85'

    Sub: Zinchenko replaces Mendy for City.

  • 81'

    Sub: Willock replaces Torreira for Arsenal.

  • 77'

    Shot! Rodri finds De Bruyne's in good space between the lines for City, but his shot lacks the power to really test Leno this time and he saves easily.

  • 74'

    Shot! Aubameyang makes a decent run but tries to shoot from a very wide angle with his weaker left foot and the effort trickles wide.

  • 72'

    Yellow: Sokratis gets a booking for a bad foul from behind on Jesus.

  • 70'

    Sub: Mahrez replaces Gundogan for City. De Bruyne will now drop deeper after running riot from an advanced position today.

  • 64'

    Penalty shout! Martinelli collapses in the box when challenged by Mendy, but that's certainly not a penalty for Arsenal.

  • 63'

    Yellow: Mendy goes into the book for City for a cynical foul on Pepe. City's tactical fouling has been ruthless today.

  • 62'

    CHANCE FOR CITY! Chambers gets caught on the ball and Jesus runs through on goal, but Leno denies the striker with a good save before Sterling has the rebound blocked.

  • 61'

    Yellow: Gundogan goes into the book for City for chopping down Smith-Rowe, who had burst through midfield.

  • 59'

    Sub: Smith-Rowe replaces Ozil for Arsenal.

  • 56'

    Sub: Bernardo Silva replaces Foden for City.

  • 55'

    CHANCE FOR CITY! De Bruyne finds acres of space on the break and carries the ball into the Arsenal box, but Chambers blocks well when the shot is fired in.

  • 52'

    CHANCE FOR CITY! De Bruyne finds Sterling, who sets up Jesus for a chance but the striker gets under the shot and scoops it over the bar.

  • 48'

    Close! Maitland-Niles gets a cross into the box from the right and Aubameyang heads just wide under pressure from Otamendi. That's better from Arsenal.

  • 46'

    The second half is underway.

  • 45'

    The fourth official indicates that three minutes of added time will be played.

  • 45'

    Half-time: Arsenal 0-3 Man City. De Bruyne's brace and an assist to set up Sterling separates the sides here. To be fair, the gap has been even bigger than three goals.

  • 42'

    Save! Leno makes an incredible save for Arsenal from De Bruyne's brilliant curling effort after Foden's solo run.

  • 41'

    Sub: Saka replaces Kolasinac for Arsenal.

  • 40'

    GOAL FOR MAN CITY! Foden finds De Bruyne and the Belgian curls a beautiful shot into the bottom corner past Leno. Arsenal are punished with a man less. Arsenal 0-3 Man City.

  • 37'

    Kolasinac has hobbled off and will need to be replaced. Saka is going to come on but Arsenal are currently playing with ten men.

  • 36'

    Kolasinac is down receiving treatment for Arsenal with an ankle injury. He may not be able to continue.

  • 34'

    Yellow: Kolasinac beats Walker with a dribble, forcing Rodri to hack down the Arsenal left back and take a caution for the side.

  • 33'

    Arsenal are having lots of sterile possession here, but finally win a freekick as Walker fouls Torreira. Ozil delivers the freekick but Mendy heads clear.

  • 27'

    Shot! Guedouzi has a shot blocked after some good dribbling by Martinelli, who looks Arsenal's biggest threat. Then the French midfielder goes down wanting a penalty, but the referee and VAR agree that it's not a spot-kick.

  • 26'

    Guedouzi looks for a ball over the top for Aubameyang but Otamendi defends well and heads the ball back to Ederson.

  • 25'

    Arsenal are having a lot of the ball at the back here but are struggling to get the ball into the final third.

  • 22'

    After a great spell of pressure, Gundogan strikes for goal for City but it goes wide of the right-hand post.

  • 17'

    Yellow: Fernandinho goes into the book for City for fouling Aubameyang.

  • 15'

    GOAL FOR CITY! Guardiola's side counter attack and De Bruyne picks out Sterling for a simple finish. Chambers and Torreira hardly covered themselves in glory in their defensive work in that move.

  • 12'

    De Bruyne floats in a freekick for City after Jesus was fouled by Torreira, but Leno does well to come and claim.

  • 8'

    Arsenal release Martinelli down the left and when Ederson can only punch his cross clear, Pepe smashes the rebound but it's blocked well by Rodri.

  • 6'

    Arsenal get forward up the left, but a cross from Kolasinac deflects straight into Ederson's arms.

  • 2'

    GOAL FOR CITY! Jesus gets in-behind the Arsenal defence and pulls the ball back for De Bruyne to smash the ball past Leno. That's a superb finish by the Belgian midfielder.

  • 1'

    We are underway in North London.

  • 1'

    Shot! Martinelli runs onto the ball and troubles Otamendi with his pace before getting a shot away and winning a corner. Good start by the Brazilian.
