After 100 days, the Premier League is finally back and already with two big clubs facing each other. On a postponed match from matchday 28, Manchester City welcomed Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium. On a terrible night for David Luiz, the Citizens got a 3-0 victory and avoided Liverpool’s possible title this Sunday. Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne, and Phil Foden scored the goals of the match.

As usual, City took control of the match in the early minutes of the first half. Things would be difficult for the Gunners and only got worse when, with just 24 minutes of the match, they were forced to make two changes due to injury. First, at the 7th minute, Granit Xhaka had to leave the field, giving place to Dani Ceballos. And then, what probably sealed Arsenal’s fate tonight, Pablo Mari left and David Luiz came in his place.

It didn’t look that bad straight after the subs, even with the hosts creating good chances. The Citizens obligated Bernd Leno to make some good saves in a short period to avoid the goals, making the German goalkeeper Arsenal’s better player – maybe in the game. However, at the end of the first half, the ball hit Luiz’s leg, as it ended up being an assist to Sterling, who broke the deadlock.

We thought that, after the break, things could get better to the visitors. But that didn’t happen. At the 51st minute, Luiz appeared again to make things worse for his team. After being left behind by Riyad Mahrez, the Brazilian pushed him inside of the box, awarding Man City a penalty.

Wrapping up Luiz’s terrible performance, he not only gave a silly penalty away but also was shown a straight red card.

Kevin De Bruyne, who didn’t have anything to do with that, stepped up and took the penalty, sending Leno to the wrong side and putting the ball into the back of the net.

The Gunners, that were already playing badly, became even more lost. Manager Mikel Arteta even tried to change something, putting new players on the field, but Arsenal just didn’t play well. The Citizens, on the other hand, took total control of the match and still found time to score the third, with Phil Foden, at 90+2.

With the 3-0 victory, Manchester City remains in 2nd place, with 60 points, but still 22 points behind Liverpool. Arsenal, on the other hand, stops on the 40 points, in the 9th position.
