Manchester City registered an 11th straight Premier League victory after coming from behind to defeat Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.

The clash got off to a lively start, with Gabriel Jesus going close with a header from Kevin de Bruyne's cross while Ederson was lucky not give away a penalty a before the 10-minute mark.

The Gunners, who were without Mikel Arteta, managed to get past the City defence onn 16 minutes when Thomas Partey played sent Gabriel Martinelli through on goal, however Ederson was on hand to deny the striker.

It was the home side who broke the deadlock in the 31st minute through Bukayo Saka, who latched onto a cross by Kieran Tierney before sending a fine low strike past Ederson.

Other than Jesus' early header, the Manchester outfit struggled to carve out a serious opening in the remaining stages of the stanza and failed to register a single shot on target.

After waves of attack, the Citizens got their reward in second-half stoppage time through Rodri's close-range finish after the hosts failed to clear their lines.
