Manchester City dwindled Arsenal in an outclassing manner in their premier league fixture with a possessive 3–1 victory at the Etihad Stadium.

Arsene Wenger appreciates the quality of the game Manchester City displays but believes Pep Guardiola’s side didn’t win in a normal way.

Belgian international Kevin De Bruyne gave Manchester City the lead with his driven finish at the 19th minutes, whereas Sergio Kun Aguero doubled their lead five minutes after second half kicked off from a penalty before substitute Alexander Lacazette pulled back one for the Gunners with his zealous shot inside the box at the 65th minutes but Jesus Gabriel restored the two nil lead at the 74th minutes.

Arsene wenger had a problem with the penalty awarded for City as he believed Nacho Monreal didn’t foul Raheem Starling. Meanwhile for the third goal, both the assist David Silva and scorer Jesus were offside.

“It is unfortunate that the game finished the way it finished. You can accept it if City win in a normal way, but this is unacceptable.” Said Wenger.

However Manchester City could have still won if not for the fantastic saves by Petr Cech and wastefulness of the hosts which Guardiola regretted.

“The only regret is the chances in the first half that we did not take, or when we didn’t make the right pass.”

Manchester City have now won fifteen consecutive games in all competitions including the EFL and Champions League. Their 11-game heave resulting to 31 points and +31 goal difference is a premier League record.

Arsene Wenger therefore thinks The Citizens are unstoppable although anything could happen. In his own words this is what he said;

“Can anyone stop them? With the way they have started and the quality they have it will be difficult, but you never know. If on top of that they have decisions like they have had today, they will be unstoppable.”

Manchester City now leads the table with eight points difference from second place Man United, the difference is the hugest after 11 games in the premier league era.
