Emirates Stadium was the site of a huge match Premier League between Arsenal and Manchester City, who were the current winners. Both teams were putting up a strong fight, making the game very exciting. Up until Gabriel Martinelli’s late-game heroics, the score had been tied for most of the game. Nathan Ake’s face was hit by his shot, which surprised Ederson and gave Arsenal a wild 1-0 win.
Several heart-stopping moments happened during this Premier League match. Josko Gvardiol’s shot was miraculously cleared off the line early in the game, giving Arsenal a scare. Ake then missed a great chance from close range. Another close call was David Raya’s shot, which went just wide of the post because he hesitated on it.
Mateo Kovacic’s close calls with the referee’s book were one of the main topics of conversation during the first half. Still, he avoided getting a red card even though he made a tackle with his studs showing and a late charge.
Gabriel Martinelli’s addition in the second half changed the game. He gave Arsenal new fire and helped them finally win.
