A woeful start to the new Premier League season for Arsenal continued at the Etihad as they lost 5-0 away at Manchester City on Saturday.
The Gunners, who arrived at the Etihad having lost their previous eight Premier League fixtures against City, made a terrible start after falling behind to Ilkay Gundogan’s seventh-minute header — setting the stage for the Citizens’ massive thrashing.
Manchester City doubled their lead just five minutes later, through Ferran Torres’s close-range finish after yet more woeful Arsenal defending.
Then, Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka saw a red card for a two-footed challenge on Joao Cancelo just ten minutes before half-time.
Striker, Gabriel Jesus added a third two minutes before the interval after fine approach play from Jack Grealish to end the game as a contest, with Torres heading in his second to complete the scoring six minutes from time.
Below are the Goalscorers for Manchester City vs Arsenal:

Arsenal – who failed to have a shot on target throughout the match – now drop to the bottom of the table after losing their opening three league fixtures of a season for the first time since 1954 — 67 years ago.
