Wenger says 'difficult' to see anyone stopping City, slams ref

05 Noviembre 2017

And Petr Cech can expect a busy afternoon up against the Premier League's top scorers this season.

But City restored their two-goal lead when David Silva, in what replays suggested was an offside position, collected a pass from Fernandinho and slipped the ball to substitute Gabriel Jesus for a simple tap-in.

"It will be hard this season", Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said, when asked if City could be stopped.

It's now a club record-extending 15 straight wins in all competitions for City - a streak that includes a penalty-shootout triumph in the League Cup.

The Gunners are lining up with a 4-3-2-1 formation, while City begin playing 4-3-3.

Guardiola added: "Well done (to my players), it was well deserved".

Having not gained much joy from Alexis Sanchez on his own in attack with Mesut Ozil behind him, Arsenal threw on 52 million-pound ($68 million) striker Alexandre Lacazette in the 56th minutes and the Frenchman fired them back into the game with a clinical diagonal finish after being set up by Ramsey.

Veteran manager Arsene Wenger brought off Granit Xhaka four minutes after City scored their third goal and the Arsenal midfielder gestured angrily in the direction of the fourth official as he sat on the bench, complaining about the offside decision that had gone the hosts' way. The playmaker cut inside and squared a pass for Jesus to sweep home in the 74th, ending Arsenal's realistic hopes of a comeback.

Manchester City's Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero (2nd R) celebrates with Manchester City's German midfielder Leroy Sane (R) after scoring their second goal from the penalty spot during the English Premier League football match between Manchester City and Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, north west England, on November 5, 2017.

"We have an opportunity to show we can do well against a big team away from home", he said. "I feel they don't work enough, because it happens every season".
