GOAL – Arsenal 0-2 Man City

Vincent Kompany

Man City

First trophy incoming for Pep Guardiola.

Vincent Kompany wins the corner and pokes home Manchester City’s second goal himself.

Kevin de Bruyne plays a low pass to Ilkay Gundogan on the edge of the box, the German shoots first time but the ball is diverted into the net by a clever Kompany finish.

The Belgian’s first goal since May and what a time to get it. He wheels away in celebrating in front of his own fans.

City goal number 199 for the Argentine.

 HALF-TIME

Arsenal 0-1 Man City

Sergio Aguero’s goal the difference at the interval.

Sergio Aguero celebrates

 

GOAL! ARSENAL 0-1 MAN CITY (Aguero, 19)

Simple as you like for City. It’s awful defending from Mustafi, who misjudges Bravo’s goal kick. Is there a nudge from Aguero? It looks like there’s not much in it and the ball goes over the defender’s head. Aguero’s in on goal. Ospina comes off his line and the striker lifts the ball over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.

  • Arsenal 0-1 Man City
  • Aguero opener (19)
  • Seven Arsenal changes
  • Ozil, Ramsey & Aubameyang return
  • Kompany, Otamendi & De Bruyne start
  • No Sterling for City, Jesus on bench
