It was a promising match between two of the favorite teams in the Premier League. And it was an opportunity for Manchester City to remain close to leader Chelsea, but Arsenal was just too effective to let them even gain one point. In the end, the Gunners, with Cesc on the field, destroyed City 3-0.
Arsenal goals were scored by Nasri, Song and Bendtner. The game was not tough at all for Wenger's side, who controlled the ball most of the time.
In fact, Dedryck Boyata's red card in the first five minutes of the game was the key to understand this disappointing performance of City. And after all, they got lucky when Cesc Fabregas missed a penalty shot that could have been another goal for the Gunners.
