InternationalFootballPremier League: De Bruyne, Haaland shine as Man City thrash Arsenal 4-1

Srinagar: Manchester City star duo of Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland were at their best as City thrashed Arsenal 4-1 win, leaving Gunners hoping for a slip-up from Pep Guardiola’s side.

Manchester City have their fate in their own hands in the title race, while Arsenal must now hope their rivals slip up, after the champions’ dominant 4-1 win over the leaders on Wednesday.

A Kevin De Bruyne double, along with goals by John Stones and Erling Haaland, took Man City within two points of Arsenal, with two matches in hand and a superior goal difference.

The Belgian was denied a second by a superb Ben White block, while Haaland went close on four occasions before Stones made it 2-0 in first-half stoppage time.

Although Stones’ header from De Bruyne’s free-kick was initially disallowed for offside, it was overturned following a VAR review.

De Bruyne made it 3-0 on 54 minutes, slotting past Ramsdale from Haaland’s pass for his eighth goal against the Gunners in the Premier League, three more than he has managed versus any other side.

Rob Holding pulled a goal back with four minutes remaining, curling beyond Ederson, but Halaand tucked in a fourth for City in stoppage time.

With his 33rd Premier League strike of the season, the Norwegian set a record for goals in a 38-match season, moving ahead of Mohamed Salah’s total of 32 from 2017/18.

City can go top when they visit Fulham on Sunday, while Arsenal are next in action on Tuesday, hosting Chelsea.
