Manchester City continued typical assistance in the Premier League as a masterful display by Bruyne terminated them to a 3-0 victory over a lethargic Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday.
Bruyne created two sublime completions and one silky assist for Raheem Sterling as Guardiola’s City killed the match as a challenge before halftime.
Meditations stockpile figured out how to maintain a strategic distance from any greater discipline in the second half as City turned on voyage control yet it was an awkward an hour and a half for their Ljungberg whose side were completely excelled.
There was no huge celebration by the travelling City fans as the champions, who dropped 8 in their past 5 games, stay 14 point out of control pioneers Liverpool.
They did, however, close the goal on 2nd place City to 4 points in front of their clash one week from now.
Arsenal handled just with 6 shots – their least total at home in the PL since 2008 and are 9th with 22 points, 7 points untied of the top 4 and giving little sign that things will improve at any point.
Ljungberg has managed just one lead from 5 games in break charge since Unai Emery was sacked and halfway through the season the north London club appear rudderless – as near the relegation zone as the best 4.
Guardiola said a week ago’s performance in losing 2-1 to Manchester United was better. It is currently 6 home games without a success for Arsenal in all matches, yet they almost led the pack in the opening minute when Gabriel Martinelli burst through.
Manchester City were 2 up in the 16th moment and again they cut through Arsenal without breaking a sweat. He swapped goes with Jesus and then selected Sterling who was all on his anyone to tranquilly dispatches the ball past Leno.
Shortly before halftime, with Arsenal quickly down to 10 men as left back Sead Kolasinac limped off, City made it 3-0 with De Bruyne again given time and to pick his spot, this time passing a brilliant left-foot finish simply inside the post.
Many Arsenal fans headed for a previous halftime coffee, or maybe home, and missed an eminent spare by Leno to deny the extraordinary Bruyne a 1st half hat trick, tearing the Belgian’s bending exertion against the post.
