Manchester City continued there stellar start to the season with a comprehensive 3-1 win over Arsenal. The result leaves the Gunners 12 points behind league leaders Man City, with Arsenal's improbable title hopes all but over, while the Sky Blues are unbeaten in 23 games.

Kevin de Bruyne opened the scoring in the 19th minute, with Arsenal lucky to go in the break just 1-0 down. Sergio Aguero scored from the spot to double City's lead after Monreal fouled Sterling in the 50th minute - although it was a questionable call.

Substitute Alexandre Lacazette pulled one back for Arsenal in the 65th minute to give the Gunners hope, but some terrible officiating from the linesman meant that Gabriel Jesus scored the third goal to consign Arsenal to a defeat.

Here's how Twitter reacted:


The pre-match banter pretty much revolved around Alexis Sanchez, and the fact that Francis Coquelin started at centre-back!

Manchester City were brilliant from the start...

...and then De Bruyne opened the scoring with a fantastic goal.

Arsenal's misery kept on piling up as City turned up the pressure

However, Alexis Sanchez was having a terrible, terrible game.

And then Aguero stepped up to make it 2-0 in the second half. No doubt about the result.

However, Lacazette grabbed one back soon after coming on.

City deserved to win, but the third goal left a bad taste in the mouth as David Silva was clearly offside.

Can anyone stop Manchester City's juggernaut?

Things are really bad for Arsenal, and its even worse than pre-Wenger times!

Arsenal fans may want to take a look at this. Michael Oliver, not so much...
