Arteta scratches Guardiola's back

As much as Brendan Rodgers' men got ahead on the scoreboard early, the Gunners, in a fit of pride, turned the score around with force.

Not that he needs it, but Mikel Arteta, Pep Guardiola's former second coach, has just tripped Leicester, one of Manchester City's two main pursuers in the fight for the Premier. Fight, to call it in some way, because Pep's men, in the absence of United playing their game, take out Foxes and Red Devils 13 points. As much as Brendan Rodgers' men were ahead on the scoreboard very soon, the Gunners, in a fit of pride, turned the score around with force, but, because of a disastrous start to the season, the European positions are still distant 6 points that can become 9 if Chelsea win their match.

It was Tielemans, who was also the best of his team, who, with a fantastic diagonal, scored the first when just 5 minutes had passed. In light of what happened during the season, it could seem that the match was going to be long for the Londoners, but this Arsenal is a new team that was about to tie again through a penalty that the referee pointed out but that He just snatched the VAR. It didn't matter, Arteta's men dominated all aspects of the game and, on the brink of halftime, David Luiz headed a ball for the equalizer. There was still time for Lacazette to score from eleven meters and for Smith Rowe to be injured before halftime, so his coach had to back down with Odegaard's substitution and put the Norwegian on the field.In the second half, Pépé, who took the opportunity, scored the third after a great team move in which the Real Madrid player put a good ball into the hole. Leicester, who lost Barnes through injury, were powerless during the 90 minutes to lose not only the match, but also the opportunity to fight for the Premier and second place in favor of Manchester United.
