Manchester City 3-0 Arsenal: Hosts punish David Luiz errors to seal comfortable win

Arsenal looked as soft-centered as they ever have in a 3-0 defeat. 

Brought on as a substitute in the 24th minute following an injury to Pablo Mari, Luiz's error led to Raheem Sterling's opener before the Brazilian was sent off for bringing down Riyad Mahrez in the penalty area just after the break to earn himself a red card and the home side a penalty, it felt like old times again.

Sterling’s goal in first-half stoppage time at least gave City the lead their dominance deserved.

Kevin De Bruyne made no mistake from the spot (51) before substitute Phil Foden (90+1) rounded off the scoring to condemn Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta to a heavy defeat on his return to the Etihad Stadium.

Victory for City consolidates their position in the top four and means Liverpool, who are 22 points ahead of Pep Guardiola's side, will not be able to seal the Premier League title at rivals Everton on Sunday.
