Manchester Metropolis recorded their second Premier League win of the season as they beat Arsenal in a tightly contested sport on the Etihad.
The Blues have been with no host of first-team gamers for the competition, with Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, Aymeric Laporte and Benjamin Mendy all lacking out.
The absences of De Bruyne and Jesus have been anticipated after Pep Guardiola dominated the duo out in his press convention on Friday, however there was no suggestion on the eve of the sport that Laporte and Mendy would even be unavailable.
Guardiola informed Sky Sports activities previous to kick-off that he expects to have Laporte again earlier than Mendy returns.
Metropolis took the lead within the first half via Raheem Sterling and his left-footed strike proved to be the one purpose of the sport, because the Blues moved onto seven factors for the marketing campaign.
