Man City hammer Arsenal
Sunday’s late Premier League kick-off saw Manchester City travel to Arsenal.
Both sides will have been in desperate need of a win for different reasons.
City started the day 17 points adrift of league leaders Liverpool and anything less than a win at the Emirates would have all but killed their already slim title hopes.
As for Arsenal, their form has been pretty dismal for some time now with a top-four finish looking increasingly unlikely.
Somewhat unsurprisingly, it would be Man City who started Sunday’s tie on the front foot with Kevin De Bruyne firing the Citizens into the lead with less than two minutes on the clock.
The Belgian than set up Raheem Sterling and added a second goal to give Man City a commanding 3-0 victory.

Arsenal hold meeting with Arteta
After Sunday’s clash, reports have been circulating showing Arsenal chief executive Vinai Venkatesham leaving Mikel Arteta’s home in the early hours of Monday morning.
Arsenal are of course still without a permanent boss after Unai Emery was axed.
And due to Freddie Ljungberg’s less than impressive record as interim boss, the North London outfit will probably be keen to appoint a new boss as soon as possible.
Arteta is a former Arsenal player and had already been linked with the job.
Now, on Monday, BBC Sport have reported that Arsenal have held a meeting with Arteta to discuss their managerial vacancy.
However, the report from the BBC claims it is not known if Arteta has been offered the job.
