Man City extend Premier League lead



Premier League leaders Manchester City continued their blistering form with a 3-1 victory over Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday (Nov 5).

Kevin De Bruyne netted the opener (19) with a low, left-footed effort from 16 yards into the bottom right corner, and Sergio Aguero made it 2-0 from the penalty spot (50) after Raheem Sterling was shoved in the box by Nacho Monreal.

Sub Alexandre Lacazette halved the deficit with a low drive (65) through Ederson's legs, but City regained their two-goal lead through their own sub Gabriel Jesus (74), netting from close range despite David Silva being in an offside position before crossing.

The result means City are now unbeaten in 23 games in all competitions, while Arsenal drop down to sixth place, 12 points off the leaders.

Arsenal have not beaten one of their big five rivals on the road since they won at the Etihad nearly three years ago, and their struggles went on as City attacked in numbers.

Aguero -- who was given a pre-match guard of honour after becoming City's record goalscorer in midweek -- blazed over from an angle early on, while Leroy Sane's ball across the face of goal was inches from being converted by Sterling.
