Manchester City thrashed ten-man Arsenal 5-0 to go top of the Premier League table.
It was men against boys as the Gunners endured a disastrous opening 45 minutes at the Etihad.
Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres both netting early on before Granit Xhaka was shown a straight red card for a rash two-footed tackle on Joao Cancelo.
The impressive Gabriel Jesus piled yet more misery on Arsenal to increase City’s advantage heading into the break.
Rodri scored the pick of the goals with a superb curled effort from range in the 53rd minute.
Torres completed his brace at the death to cap off a dream afternoon for Pep Guardiola’s champions.
Meanwhile, the pressure grows on Mikel Arteta to find a result from somewhere after three defeats from three in the English top flight.
The result sees the north London club drop to the bottom of the division ahead of their clash with newly-promoted Norwich next weekend.
