Raheem Sterling’s first-half goal was enough for Pep Guardiola to get one over his old assistant as Manchester City edged out Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal 1-0.

Sterling struck in the 23rd minute when Bernd Leno could only parry Phil Foden’s shot and Ederson ensured that was enough as he made fine saves from Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before the break.

Pepe then bent another free-kick narrowly wide after Walker felled Aubameyang, while Sterling passed up a late chance to settle it after breaking into the box.

Aguero was replaced by Ilkay Gundogan with 65 minutes gone as Sterling moved forward for City.

Arteta masterminded victory when these two sides met in the FA Cup semi-final in the summer but Arsenal have not won at the Etihad since January 2015, with City having won eight and drawn two of the last 10 meetings between the two sides.

But it was Arsenal who threatened next with Saka felled by Dias before David Luiz sent the resulting free-kick over the crossbar.

Arsenal were slow to grow into the game but just as they were beginning to get a foothold in the City half, the hosts took the lead with 23 minutes gone.
