Manchester City-Arsenal has decreed Pep Guardiola's team as the big favorites for the final victory of the English Premier League. Pep Guardiola's City, currently with two matches to recover, dominated the match, closing on Arteta's Gunners, thanks to a super performance.
Citizens won 4-1 against London rivals. Manchester City, in the event that they manage to triumph in the two games to be recovered against West ham and Brighton, could be +4 to 5 days from the end of the Premier League, putting a serious mortgage on the title issue.
Guardiola hits his 20th victory against Arsenal in his career. In the first half the duel was won by Ramsdale, with three decisive saves to keep Arsenal alive, who collapsed in recovery: a free kick by De Bruyne and a winning touch by Stones, with the Var restoring an initially canceled goal.
The recovery is once again one-way, with the Belgian in great shape: his inside right is worth the 3-0 in the 54th minute, with the match practically over. Arsenal are in fact in total confusion and, in the whole match, have only one decisive leap in the 87th minute, when Holding scores the goal of the flag.
However, the Gunners are out of the match and it shows in the 95th minute, when Haaland scores poker undisturbed: 49th goal of the season for the former Dortmund player, 33rd in the Premier League. Manchester City wins 4-1 and makes two out of two in direct matches.
He is now 73 points, -2 from Arsenal, with two games left. Hoax on the horizon for Arteta after a dominated year.
Manchester City destroys Arsenal: Guardiola sees the title!

Roberto De Zerbi's Brighton also collapsed, perhaps feeling the effects of the dross of the Fa Cup and being overwhelmed by Nottingham Forest. The Garibaldi Reds push at the start, who miss a penalty with Brennan Johnson, hypnotized by Steele.
