Commentary
Manchester City bounce back from their defeat to Newcastle to reclaim second place in the table with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Arsenal. Sergio Aguero was the key man in the victory, notching his 10th hat-trick in the Premier League. The Argentine opened the scoring after 48 seconds, although the Gunners were able to respond through Laurent Koscielny. However, City regained the lead before the break thanks to a tap-in from Aguero following excellent work by Raheem Sterling. Pep Guardiola's men dominated the second half and got the third goal in slightly fortuitous circumstances as it appeared the ball hit Aguero's arm last before rolling into the net. The visitors were not happy, but their display in the second half was lacklustre to say the least, failing to register an effort on goal. City move back within two points of Liverpool, although the Merseysiders are in action tomorrow against West Ham.
