Well that is all we have time for from The Emirates. We're back this weekend with live coverage from the Premier League again.

Liverpool vs Newcastle and Man City vs Chelsea are out featured games.

But until then, it is goodbye.


Full time: Arsenal 0-3 Manchester City

The crisis deepens at The Emirates for Arsene Wenger as his Arsenal side suffer their second three-goal loss to Manchester City this week.

The damage was done in the first half through Bernardo and David Silva's cute finishes, before Leroy Sane made it three.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed the chance to spark a comeback with a saved penalty and after that, as the snow returned, the game was played a near walking pace.

City are five wins from the title while the Gunners are 10 points off the top four, and 30 behind the champions-elect.


Two added minutes at The Emirates. Thank goodness.


A chant of 'one Arsene Wenger' coming from the Man City fans who have travelled.

Not much support for the Frenchman from the home faithful.


Gabriel Jesus on for City. They have never lost when he has played for them in the Premier League. Don't see that changing tonight.


Arsenal fans continue to spill out of the home end. Not sure there will be many around to boo them at full time.



The snow has descended on The Emirates and it would be fair to say this game has slipped into an afterthought. Yaya Toure joins the handful of players who don't want to be out there, replacing Sergio Aguero.


Arsene Wenger is in for another linching from the media over the next 24 hours. Brighton are to come this weekend, and frankly they'll be licking their lips at the prospect of facing this Arsenal side.



Kyle Walker off with what looks like a leg injury. Bit of a worry for City. Oleksandr Zinchenko on for the final 19 minutes.


The game is meandering a little now after that brief flurry of pressure from Arsenal. Just a case of how many more City want. Sergio Aguero is yet to find the net tonight.....


Aubameyang takes one first time on the volley but it drifts wide. Another chance gone for the Gunners.


Nicolas Otamendi fouls Henrikh Mkhitaryan inadvertently. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang steps up and is denied by Ederson. When it rains it pours.




Attendance tonight: 58,420.

No chance.


Back under way at The Emirates. No changes at the break.


Leroy Sane gets his goal to put City three to the good.

Half time: Arsenal 0-3 Manchester City

Do not adjust your screens, you are not following a re-run of the Carabao Cup final. City lead by the same scoreline as they beat the Gunners on Sunday, but before we have even reached the second 45 minutes.

Goals for both Silvas and Leroy sane for City. Arsenal have been as insipid as the home attendance, which must be their lowest of the season. Boos welcome the half-time whistle, and the gloom shows no sign of lifting for Arsene Wenger.


Into two added minutes at The Emirates. Ederson holds a shot from Xhaka as Arsenal try to muster something at the end of this half. Let the boos commence.


Cech saves from Aguero at close range. City look like scoring every time they get the ball.


Laurent Koscielny smashes the ball out of play under no pressure at the back. It has been that kind of night for Arsenal. But don't forget that City have been simply awesome.


Just about sums it up.


David Silva bangs Man City into a two-goal lead.
