Raheem Sterling’s fourth goal secured all the three points for Manchester City in Saturday’s English Premier League clash against Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.
The win was the first for Pep Guardiola’s side in three matches.
Sterling, who missed England’s games against Wales, Belgium, and Denmark with a hamstring niggle, scored the decisive goal midway through the first half of the action-packed game at the Etihad Stadium.
Algeria captain, Riyad Mahrez, stationed on the right of a fluid City attack, was prominently involved in the opening exchanges – firing wide inside the opening minute before digging out a cross for the returning Sergio Aguero to head over.
He later released Aguero to run at the Arsenal defence in the 23rd minute, with Phil Foden’s resulting shot saved by Bernd Leno, and Sterling was around to tuck home the rebound.
