Manchester City secured their 10th win in 11 Premier League games, thereby extending their lead at the top of the table victory over Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.
Man City have won nine consecutive league matches, a club record for a single season, and have progressed to the knockout stage of the Champions League and are through to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.
Kevin de Bruyne’s driven finish in the 19 minute and a Sergio Aguero penalty in the 50 minute put City in command and, even though substitute Alexandre Lacazette pulled one back for Arsenal, Gabriel Jesus sealed victory for the home side from close range.
Arsenal were unlucky at the penalty awarded for Nacho Monreal’s challenge on Raheem Sterling ,as both Jesus and David Silva appeared to be offside for the third goal, but the visitors didnt deserve to take anything from the game.
The Gunners would have been beaten by more had it not been for the saves from goalkeeper Petr Cech.
Man City go into the two-week international break with an extended advantage over second-placed Manchester United, who were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea.
The eight-point gap between the top two is the largest after 11 games in the Premier League.
Arsenal slip to 6 points and are 12 points behind City, and face a battle to regain a place in the Champions League.
