The course of the Arsenal vs Man City match

Havertz greeted him and kicked the ball directly. However, Man City goalkeeper Stefan Ortega was able to block Havertz's kick.

After that, Kai Havertz again got a golden opportunity. He launched the ball into Man City's goal from close range in the 40th minute. However, Kai Havertz's effort was again thwarted by Stefan Ortega. No goals were scored. That situation made the Arsenal vs Man City duel in the first half end with a score of glasses aka 0-0.

Continuing into the second half, John Stones headed the ball into the Arsenal goal after receiving a pass from a corner in the 53rd minute.

Ten minutes later, Pep Guardiola decided to pull out Erling Haaland and insert Cole Palmer.

In addition, Guardiola also included Kevin de Bruyne to add creativity to Man City's attack. Cole Palmer made an immediate impact. He managed to score a goal for Man City in the 77th minute.
