Kevin De Bruyne scored twice and assisted the third to help Man City sink Arsenal further in Premier League on Sunday Emirates Stadium.
De Bruyne scored the opening goal just two minutes into the game from Gabriel Jesus’s low cross.
City scored again through Raheem Sterling in less than 15 minutes. This will be Sterling’s 16th goal this season.
Then De Bruyne came back again with the third goal for City and could have scored a hat-trick before half time if not for a brilliant save from Bernd Leno.
Man City’s victory sees them close gap on first placed Liverpool and four points behind second placed Leicester City.
Arsenal, on the other hand, remain 9th in Premier League with a very slim chance of reaching the first four after their humiliating defeat to Manchester City.
The Gunners have only won one game, drew twice and now lost twice under Freddie Ljungberg who temporarily took over after Unai Emery was dismissed.
Sunday’s match against City has shown how desperately Arsenal need a new more experienced manager.
