Manchester City 1-0 Arsenal: Raheem Sterling seals a narrow victory for Pep Guardiola’s side to climb up to 10th in the Premier League.
Sterling, given the armband by manager Pep Guardiola with Fernandinho on the bench and Kevin de Bruyne injured, finished off the rebound after Phil Foden’s 23rd-minute shot had been saved.
The result extended a miserable run of away results against their fellow ‘top six’ members for Arsenal. They have now failed to win in their last 29 such meetings, since success at City in 2015.
More importantly for his side, after picking up a single point from their last two games, they were able to claim maximum points in this one.
The three points came even without De Bruyne and with the returning Sergio Aguero restricted to an hour’s action on his first appearance since June after recovering from a knee injury.
