Video Arsenal 1-0 Man City
The most awaited battle in round 8 of the Premier League between Arsenal and Man City ended with a 1-0 victory for the “Gunners”. Coach Arteta’s team snatched an extremely emotional 3 points thanks to Martinelli’s lucky strike.
This extremely important victory helped Arsenal rise to 2nd place in the Premier League rankings. “Gunners” surpassed Man City by 2 points more than “The Citizens”.
Arsenal is currently equal in points with Tottenham (20 points) and equal in goal difference (+10). However, coach Arteta’s team could not rise to the top of the table when they had fewer goals than Tottenham (16 goals compared to 18 goals).
After many rounds of reigning at the top of the Premier League, Man City was finally “ousted”. Of course, the gap between coach Pep Guardiola’s team and Tottenham and Arsenal is only 2 points, a number that can be leveled at any time. But Man City needs to play more carefully in the near future, as they have lost their second consecutive match in the Premier League this season.
Man City was lucky to only drop to third place because on the day they lost to Arsenal, Liverpool could not find the joy of winning. Coach Jurgen Klopp’s team drew with Brighton in an extremely dramatic 2-2 score. This leaves “The Kop” with only 17 points, 1 point behind Man City and ranked 4th on the Premier League rankings.
Aston Villa also failed to win in round 8 of the Premier League, drawing 1-1 with Wolverhampton. That result led to them losing the opportunity to enter the top 4. Currently, the home team at Villa Park is ranked 5th with 16 points.
