Goals from Sergio Aguero, Kevin de Bruyne and substitute Gabriel Jesus sealed the win to extend City’s gap over the Gunners to 12 points.
Despite a confident start by Arsenal, it was the Citizens who took the lead through Kevin de Bruyne. The Belgian’s first effort was saved by Petr Cech, but the Gunners’ shot-stopper could do nothing about the midfielder’s second attempt which nestled into the bottom corner.
Five minutes after the break and City doubled their lead. Nacho Monreal was adjudged to have brought down Raheem Sterling in the penalty area. Sergio Aguero tucked home his eight goal of the campaign.
Substitute Lacazette scored his 6th of the season to give Arsenal hope, but the comeback was shortlived as David Silva, who appeared to be in an offside posiition, cut back for Gabriel Jesus who slid in for City’s third.
It all but confirms Arsene Wenger’s side are now out of the title race and solely in a battle to achieve a top four finish.
