London, February 22: Manchester City made it 13 consecutive Premier League victories as Pep Guardiola’s team cast aside Arsenal 1-0 thanks to Raheem Sterling’s early header. Hunting an eighth straight win over the Gunners, City made a supreme start which was capped by Sterling’s 13th goal of the season for the club in all competitions. After 30 minutes of dominance, City rather took their foot off the accelerator, though Ederson only had one save to make as City maintained their superb defensive record.

Sterling had been involved in six goals in his last five Premier League appearances against Arsenal heading into Sunday’s game, and he added to that tally inside the opening two minutes. Having already sliced wide, Sterling was left unmarked to leap up and glance Riyad Mahrez’s cross from the right beyond Bernd Leno.
Sterling has only scored more league goals against Bournemouth than against Arsenal, and he would have had a second in this game if not for Leno’s later save.
