Rodri’s strike, timed at 92:28, is our latest winning goal in a Premier League match since Gabriel Jesus scored on the final day of the 2017-18 season against Southampton to ensure Guardiola’s men became the first team to reach 100 points.

In a flying start, Manchester City’s Ruben Dias headed just wide before Gabriel Martinelli’s shot was blocked by Ederson at the other end.

Arsenal broke the deadlock on 31 minutes to reward an impressive first-half display when Bukayo Saka swept in from Kieran Tierney’s pass. It was the first time Pep Guardiola’s side had trailed in a league match since 30 October.

But Manchester City levelled on 57 minutes when Bernardo Silva was adjudged to have been fouled by Granit Xhaka, following a VAR review, and Riyad Mahrez converted the penalty.

Within 60 seconds Martinelli then hit the post following Nathan Ake’s goalline clearance, and less than a minute later Arsenal were reduced to 10 men as Gabriel was booked for a second time.

Although the Gunners dug in resolutely, Rodri popped up to poke in a last-gasp winner from close range.

Manchester City are now on 53 points, 11 clear at the top but having played one match more than second-placed Chelsea. Arsenal remain fourth with 35 points.

Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale said ,”We’re deflated, but we’ve got to swallow it and move on because that’s football. We’ve got an important semi-final first leg coming up on Thursday.”

After the match Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said ,”Arsenal were better. We face a team that in recent years has struggled to be in the top four. They start this season bottom.

They have six days after beating Norwich, we have two days. It was so tough for us to come back. We had no energy. That is why we put one more player in the middle to get more control and passes.

We know in transition and the physicality they have it can be difficult and it was difficult. We tried and in one minute we have a penalty and then the red card. We try to analyse many things but sometimes the coin falls on your side.”
