Arsenal breaking records

Following what is a historic win for Mikel Arteta, Arsenal have put an end to a lot of unwanted records as they look to go one better than last season in the race for the Premier League crown.

  • Sunday’s 1-0 triumph was Arsenal’s first Premier League win against Pep Guardiola.
  • It was Arsenal’s first Premier League win against Manchester City since 2015.
  • The Gunners secured their first Premier League win against the reigning champions since 2017.
  • Manchester City’s four shots against Arsenal is the fewest the Sky Blues have ever had in a Premier League game under Pep Guardiola. Their final shot of the game came in the 58th minute.
  • Arsenal have beaten Manchester City in a Premier League home game without conceding for the first time since April 2012.

After struggling for so many years against the Manchester outfit, Sunday’s win will surely hand Arsenal a huge confidence boost and the belief they can actually win the title this time around.
