De Bruyne scores twice as City roll over Arsenal

Manchester City players celebrate Kevin De Bruyne’s goal against Arsenal on December 15, 2019

LONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 15 – Two fine goals and an assist for Kevin De Bruyne inspired Manchester City to a 3-0 win over a woeful Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Manchester City of old turned up in the first half, racing into a 3-0 lead before the break, largely down to a De Bruyne masterclass. He put City ahead with a brilliantly controlled rebounded half volley, before squaring for Raheem Sterling to double their lead.

De Bruyne made it three with a low curling effort from 20 yards, then saw another bending long-range shot hit the post via Bernd Leno’s superb stop.

It was another of those days for Arsenal, who looked overawed throughout, while Mesut Ozil took criticism from the home fans as he walked slowly off the pitch when substituted at 3-0, prompting him to kick away his gloves in frustration.

The result leaves Manchester City 14 points behind leaders Liverpool, but now four points from Leicester after their slip against Norwich on Saturday, while Arsenal sit ninth, seven points off the top four.
