Arsenal 0-2 Man City: Sterling And Silva Score! (Report, Other Results)

Manchester City marked a great start to the new Premier League season with a 2-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday.

It was less than 10 minutes before the latest replacement for Patrick Vieira or Emmanuel Petit - this time Matteo Guendouzi - showed a hopeless lack of touch in a promising position and allowed the ball to run out for a throw-in.

The Gunners were just 16 minutes into the season when their collective ability to put in a tackle was hideously exposed yet again.

Raheem Sterling, with the bounce that was so frustratingly absent from his hard-working performances for England in Russia, skipped past Hector Bellerin and Guendouzi before firing off his shot before Granit Xhaka could get in a tackle himself.

It flew untroubled into the back of the Arsenal net with Petr Cech not even offering out a stretched arm in protest.

The inevitable moment of brilliance that keeps Arsenal fans believing was provided by Bellerin after 21 minutes.

He embarrassed Benjamin Mendy with his turn but the subsequent shot was at too comfortable a height and Ederson was able to make an easy save.

Two moments later was a personal highlight – the Arsenal goalkeeping howler.

Cech tried to sweep along a simple back-pass on to his other centre-back only to scuff his kick and send the ball spinning dangerously close to his own far post for a corner.

So while the Blue Moon continues to rise, Emery can only hope that as it clears the skies above north London again it provokes something of a sea-change in what Arsenal have to show for this new era so far.
