WATCH: Arsenal v Manchester City reaction

Steve Freeth has given his reaction to Man City's victory at Arsenal, in what could prove to be a season-defining result for both clubs.

Despite Pep Guardiola insisting not too long ago that his City side weren't going to win the title, his side headed to the Emirates Stadium knowing a win would see them leapfrog their hosts into top spot. 

The visitors drew first blood through a tidy finish on the break from Kevin De Bruyne, but Arsenal equalised just before half-time through a Bukayo Saka penalty.

City proceeded to dominated after the break, showing their quality and experience to secure a 3-1 victory, courtesy of second-half goals from Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland.

Pep Guardiola's side are now top on goal difference and have shortened into 4/7 favourites to win the title - so much for not being in a title race.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have only taken one point from the last nine available in the league, and they have also been beaten by Man City in the FA Cup in the time since they last registered a league win. 

When Arsenal beat Manchester United less than a month ago, it was a win that led fans to believe that Arsenal would run away with the title and even manage to reach the 100 point mark. 

How quickly things change.

Not only have they now drifted to 7/4 to win the title, but that 100-point total that everybody was dreaming of is not just unlikely, but also now mathematically impossible. 

One thing Arsenal have in their favour is that they do still have a game in hand on City, so whilst they have been shunted back into second place on goal difference, they can regain a three-point lead if they manage to win that. 

In the video above, Steve Freeth gives his thoughts on the result, as well as discussing whether or not it really is all doom and gloom for Arsenal.
