  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! GUNDOGAN HEADS CITY AHEAD!!!!!! 1-0!!!!! The home side take the lead as Gundogan powers a header past Leno from close range. Silva and Jesus combine down the right flank before the Brazilian floats a cross to the back post. Gundogan coasts in behind Chambers and plants his effort down and past Leno before the keeper can react. A great start for City.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! TORRES CONVERTS!!! 2-0 CITY!!!!! The homes side are in complete control already. Torres completes a simple finish from close range after Silva's cross travels through the Arsenal defence, allowing the Spaniard to score. It is horrendous defending from the Gunners as a poor delivery from Silva somehow works its way into the path of Torres. He is left unmarked to guide his effort past Leno.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! RODRI MAKES IT FOUR!!!!! 4-0!!!! City are on their way to another dominant victory at home as Rodri curls in a low strike. Torres makes a good run to open up space on the edge of the Arsenal box. He works an offload back to Rodri, who shoots first time and bends his effort inside the right post into the bottom-right corner to beat Leno. A fine effort from the Spaniard.
