Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres scored inside the first 12 minutes of the Premier League match at the Etihad Stadium

Arsenal’s miserable start to the new Premier League season continued as they conceded twice early away to champions Manchester City.

After opening the campaign with back-to-back 2-0 defeats against Brentford and Chelsea, the Gunners needed a boost at the Etihad Stadium.

After Mikel Arteta chose a starting line-up that left many scratches in his head regarding formation, Arsenal were early 2-0 down again.

What happened?

City took the lead after just seven minutes as Gabriel Jesus crossed the far post and Ilkay Gundogan took advantage of a loose defense and headed home.

Just five minutes later, City scored a second after Arsenal could not manage a cross again, this time Ferran Torres scored from close range from Bernardo Silva’s ball in.
