Man City 3-0 Arsenal

Nov 23, 2008

Arsenal’s turbulent week ended in more misery as Manchester City sent them to their fifth league defeat this season.

The Gunners appeared to be in freefall after skipper William Gallas was dropped for his midweek outburst.

Stephen Ireland clipped in City’s first after Gael Clichy sliced a clearance, and Robinho doubled the lead when he superbly chipped Manuel Almunia.

Robinho had a shot cleared off the line before Daniel Sturridge scored with a penalty after he had been fouled.

Arsenal’s build-up to the match was blighted by Gallas’ public claims that the team lacks spirit and togetherness, while City had won only once in five league games.
