Manchester City moves to the top of the Premier League with 3-1 victory against Arsenal

    İlkay Gündoğan celebrates Manchester City's victory against title-chasing Arsenal.

    (CNN)For the first time since November, Manchester City has supplanted Arsenal at the top of the Premier League.

    Second-half goals from Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland helped City to a 3-1 victory over its title-chasing rival at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday, though Arsenal does have a game in hand.
    Kevin De Bruyne gave the visiting side the lead when he gathered Takehiro Tomiyasu's errant back-pass and lobbed goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.
      Arsenal responded near the end of the first half when Bukayo Saka equalized from the penalty spot, but Man City pulled clear in the final 20 minutes of the game through Grealish and Haaland, who now has 26 goals in 22 Premier League games this season.
        "It's a long road. There are plenty more games to play," said City manager Pep Guardiola. "Coming here and winning against that team, [in the] second half, we were much, much better."
