Manchester City extended their unbeaten Premier League run against Arsenal to 12 matches with a resounding 5-0 victory at the Etihad Stadium.
The hosts took a seventh-minute lead courtesy of an Ilkay Gundogan header and Ferran Torres doubled City’s advantage five minutes later from close range.
Granit Xhaka was dismissed for serious foul play, following a challenge on Joao Cancelo in the 35th-minute, before Gabriel Jesus finished from Jack Grealish’s pass to add a third before half-time.
Rodri’s controlled 25-yard strike made it four on 53 minutes, before Torres headed in substitute Riyad Mahrez’s cross to complete the scoring six minutes from time.
City, who have now won their last three home league matches 5-0, go top of the table ahead of West Ham United, who take on Crystal Palace this afternoon, on goal difference.
Arsenal sit bottom with three defeats from three.
