GETTY Antonio Conte has been handed a big boost

Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Leroy Sane scored in the first half as the runaway leaders restored their 16-point cushion over nearest rivals Manchester United in the table. Ask Arsene Wenger to picture his ideal Arsenal performance right now and one suspects the mental image would be shadowy and faint.

Even new January recruit, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looks lost already, unable to dispatch a penalty past Ederson.

The Gunners really struggled without Jack Wilshere in the side as he was missing on the night through injury. "Four of our fixtures are also away!" It's one of those things where we have to just go again to start to pick up momentum on Sunday.

Man City could have been forgiven for failing to be at their best at the Emirates, given their preparations were probably hindered by the Carabao Cup celebrations, but that simply wasn't the case; City were remarkable, particularly in the first half.

"We made an fantastic three goals, nice goals".

Wenger's side have now lost four of their last five games in all competitions, with their seven 2018 defeats more than any other Premier League club.

US stuns Sweden to win first Olympic gold in men's curling
It was a day of sporting ignominy for hockey-mad Canada, winners of the last two Olympic gold medals in men's ice hockey. Germany stunned defending champions Canada 4-3 Friday to reach the men's Olympic ice hockey final for the first time .

As Manchester City fans sang it "was just like Wembley", just a motley number of the Arsenal fans at the half-empty Emirates roused themselves to respond to the taunting.

For City's first goal, he dashed through the Arsenal defence with fantastic dribbling skills and insane pace before laying the pass for Silva who opened the scoring for City. "I'm surprised that you're surprised", Wenger said about the crowd reaction.

City then exhibited their speed on the counter-attack for a third five minutes later as Aguero, Kevin de Bruyne and Kyle Walker combined to set up Sane to tap home his 12th goal of the season.

Arsenal wasted opportunities and the most clear-cut came in the 53rd. Would you have Henrikh Mkhitaryan over Leroy Sane? But City goalkeeper Ederson guessed correctly and easily dived down to catch the effort.

"I am confident that nothing is permanent in life", added Wenger. "Chelsea have a lot of very talented players but we are in good shape and we are very confident". "I'm always ready for a fight". I know all the managers can be in that situation.
