Manchester City 3-1 Arsenal Fc
Two early goals from both teams made this match an interesting one to watch.
Match day 25 derby between Manchester and Arsenal was indeed an interesting match for football lovers as all seemed favourable for City when Sergio Aguero stooped down really low to head in an opener goal just in the 46th seconds of the match from Laporte’s cross; who stole the ball from a somewhat slow Alex Iwobi on the edge of the visitor’s keeper box.
Arsenal could have been 3-0 down at 9mins of the when but Aquero got a Penalty appeal denied 2min after the first goal and Laporte who assisted Aquero in the first goal also had a goal headed into the net from Kevin de Bruyne’s cross disallowed as the referee ruled it out as offside.
Not long after, the real contest began in the 11th mins when Arsenal drew level with City as an Unmarked Laurent Koscielny headed in the equaliser in what seemed to be Arsenal’s first attack in the game.
In reaction, City who are so determined to pile pressure on League’s leaders(Liverpool) show Arsenal another level of class in the 44th mins as Aguero tapped the ball into the back of the net from a spectacular foot-work by Gundogan and Sterling- as the England International crossed the ball to the scorer to make it 2-1 just before halftime.
City continued to pile pressure on Emery’s boys just after the break and it indeed paid off when another good play cross by Sterling reached a sliding Aguero who tapered the ball into the net to make it 3-1; thereby earning himself a hat trick.
So what next?
City travel to Everton next week on match day 26 while Arsenal travels to Huddersfield.
It was a really good and interesting match to watch!
