Pep Guardiola’s side claimed the bragging right of the affairs at the Etihad Stadium as they hand the Reds an heavy defeat on the return of Premier league.

While many had predicted a tough show against their visitors due to the absence of absence of Erling Haaland, the hosts turned things around to keep their chase of the title despite conceding early from Mohammed Salah’s effort.

Argentine Julian Alvarez would later level up to wrap the first half with a draw.

However, two goals early in the second half from Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan shave the pendulum back to the city’s end before Jack Grealish wrapped up victory in an absorbing contest at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

The victory for City leaves the league leaders Arsenal on their toes as they seek to maintain their grip on the top spot.
