Manchester City chalked up yet another victory to maintain its stranglehold of the Premier League title race but pursuers Manchester United and Leicester City both secured important wins to enhance their top-four bids on Sunday.
Raheem Sterling’s header after 75 seconds was enough for City to win 1-0 at Arsenal — a result much more comfortable than the narrow scoreline suggests.
It was its 13th Premier League win in a row, and 18th in all competitions, equalled a club-record 11 successive away wins and kept the side 10 points ahead of the pack at the top.
