The Sky Blues won their 18th straight match in all competitions.
The last time Manchester City and Arsenal met in the Premier League was a 1-0 victory for Pep Guardiola's men on home soil. The teams faced off again on Sunday at the Emirates Stadium in London, with the same result.
Raheem Sterling's header just 75 seconds into the match was the difference between the sides as City appeared to be headed for a dominant victory but instead settled for the one-goal win. For all their struggles of late, Arsenal fought valiantly against the league leaders, weathering the early storm to play City on fairly equal terms for most of the match.
However, the result was ultimately the same: City picked up another three points as they march toward the Premier League title, while Arsenal remains stalled in 10th place on the table.
It looked like a slaughter was en route, but Arsenal has grown into the game, and it's a far more even affair at the moment. City's still the better of the two sides, but Arsenal seems to have found some fighting spirit.
Raheem Sterling gets the visitors on the board with a header. This may be a long match for the Gunners.
2. Ruthless. A great switch of play from @rubendias finds @Mahrez22 with the delicate touch - he whips it in and the target man himself - @sterling7 - gets on the end of the cross to head us into a lead 😎
