Arsenal and Manchester City secured another victory in the fierce competition for the Premier League title. The Londoners triumphed 1-0 against Leicester City in the transfer, while Pep Guardiola's "citizens" defeated AFC Bournemouth with a deep score of 4-1, also in the transfer.
As for Arsenal, the Londoners dominated the entire match, not giving Leicester any scoring opportunities. "Foxes" could not make a single shot at the opponent's goal. Gabriel Martinelli's goal in the 46th minute of the challenge was enough for Arsenal to get 3 very important points.
Initially, the Londoners took the lead with Trossard, but the latter's goal was canceled by the VAR system, due to a foul during the build-up of the action. Arsenal also had another goal disallowed, this time by Saka, due to an offside position. In this challenge, the captain's armband for the Londoners was given to Oleksandr Zinchenko, as a sign of respect for the sacrifice of the Ukrainians on the front of the war with Russia. The next match for Mikel Arteta's team will be against Everton at home.
On the other hand, Manchester City appeared confident in the 4-1 victory against AFC Bournemouth. Erling Haaland was back on target while Álvarez and Foden also found the net. Coach Guardiola again experimented with tactics and player alignment, but it seems that this time he made the right choice. Meanwhile, Lerma scored for AFC Bournemouth in the 83rd minute.
The win was quite important and motivational for Manchester City, which ended a really frustrating week with draws against Nottingham Forest and RB Leipzig in the Champions League.
Arsenal leads the Premier League standings, but the gap with City is now only 2 points. However, Mikel Arteta's men have one more game to play.
