For about three years now, Arsenal FC had been an underdog to Manchester City as Arsenal last won a game with Manchester City was in 2017. Even Manchester City had defeated Arsenal FC twice in the 2019/2020 season. But the ball changed in favor of Arsenal FC as the club beat almighty Manchester City managed by Pep Guardiola, the two goals scored by Arsenal FC captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Before the game, many football fans had given the game to Manchester City to win Arsenal FC as usual. But Arsenal FC surprised the whole world by defeating Manchester City by two goals to nil.

Undoubtedly, the influence and tactics of the coach, Mikel Arteta cannot be overemphasized, but the impact of each player on the field of play cannot be underestimated. The two major lessons learned from Saturday's game between Arsenal FC and Manchester City are:

Firstly, the confidence that Arsenal FC defeated Liverpool FC on Wednesday worked for the team on Saturday. The players played as a team, not an individual ball, and each player was confident with the ball. Playing with confidence helped Arsenal FC in the game.

Secondly, the inability of Mahrez and Raheem Sterling to operate at the wings affected Manchester City. Tierney and Niles curbed the two players. To defeat Manchester City, the coach of the opponent club should work on the two sides of his team from the back. In contrast, Mikel Arteta, Arsenal coach, also worked on his defensive line, ensuring that the players at the defense line played with cohesion and doggedness. David Luiz was extraordinary, which earned him 'Man of the match.'
