Manchester City put 6 past Arsenal this afternoon to put a dent in the London side’s title aspirations.
A brace from man of the match Fernandinho and a goal each from Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Yaya Toure, secured the comfortable win for Manchester City.
“It was a great game for the fans. At times the tempo was frightening. We looked to be in control of the game for most of it. There were no standout individual performances but collectively we’ve did incredibly well,” Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany told BT Sport.
Theo Walcott netted a brace for Arsenal, while defender Per Mertesacker scored the other goal for Arsene Wenger’s side in the defeat.
Aguero was also taken off with a calf injury.
With the win, Manchester City, which moved to second place, is now three points behind Arsenal in the EPL standings, while the Gunners’ lead could be cut to just two points if Chelsea wins their game later today.
