MOTM: William Saliba.

Arsenal this season are only the fourth team to keep a clean sheet against a side managed by Pep Guardiola in two league matches in the same season, after Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2014-15, Manchester United in 2020-21, and Crystal Palace in 2021-22.

Both Premier League meetings between Arsenal and Man City this season have been goalless at half-time; none of the previous 22 league meetings between the two clubs had been 0-0 at the break before this.

Since his Premier League debut, William Saliba has been dribbled past just FIVE times in 53 Premier League games for Arsenal, fewer than any other CB in that period (minimum 20 tackles vs. dribblers). 

Erling Haaland has failed to score & have a shot on target against Arsenal in his last 3 appearances (2 EPL and 1 community shield).

William Saliba & Gabriel are the first centre back pairing in the Premier League to restrict Erling Haaland home & away to zero shots on target in a single season.

Arsenal have finally taken points from Man City in the Premier League, the first time in 13 attempts. It’s the first time in seven years that the Gunners have avoided defeat to Man City (since April 2017).

Manchester City failed to score in a Premier League game at the Etihad Stadium for the first time since a 0-2 defeat to Crystal Palace in October 2021; they had scored in 47 straight home league matches prior to this draw with Arsenal.

This match saw just three shots on target (1 Man City, 2 Arsenal), one of just three games to see three or fewer in the Premier League this season, which also includes the reverse meeting between the two sides in October (also 3 shots on target).

Arsenal has a 27% ball possession which is the lowest they’ve managed in over 2 years.

For the first time this season, the Opta supercomputer doesn’t think Man City are the favourites to win the league.
