Arsenal walked out of the Etihad Stadium empty-handed on Saturday evening following their 0-1 loss at the hands of Manchester City.
Having served as Guardiola’s assistant at City, many expected manager Mikel Arteta to give City some hard time and they did just that apart from finding the back of the net.
In the defeat, Arsenal has now lost all seven of their last seven league meetings with Manchester City with Raheem Sterling being the hero this time out.
According to stats from Opta, this is Arsenal’s worst run against a single team since they also lost seven in a row against Ipswich Town between 1974 and 1977.
The result will be a worry for Arteta as his side hasn’t won a single away game against top-six opposition since they earned a 2-0 victory away at City back in the 2014/15 season.
7 - Arsenal have lost each of their last seven league games against Manchester City, their longest such run against an opponent since losing seven in a row vs Ipswich between 1974-1977. Bogey. #MCIARS— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) October 17, 2020
