Arsenal really stepped up to the plate, showing everyone they mean business in the title race by holding Manchester City to a solid 0-0 draw at the Etihad Stadium. This result was a game-changer, propelling Liverpool to the top spot in the Premier League on a crucial day where the title race heated up.

Under Mikel Arteta’s guidance, Arsenal, hungry for their first league title in two decades, sit in second place on the table with 65 points and just nine games left in the season. City, the reigning champs, aren’t far behind, trailing by just one point with 64.

Liverpool, meanwhile, seized the opportunity to snatch the lead with a gritty 2-1 comeback against Brighton & Hove Albion earlier in the day.

Despite City’s dominance in possession, Arsenal didn’t falter, putting up a staunch defense that frustrated even the likes of Erling Haaland, the league’s top scorer. It was a masterclass in defensive play, extending Arsenal’s unbeaten league run to an impressive nine games.

Gabriel Jesus had a couple of close calls for Arsenal, narrowly missing the target with two shots in the first half and almost connecting with a cross from Bukayo Saka. On the other side, City’s best chance came early on with Kevin De Bruyne’s corner kick, but it was expertly dealt with by Arsenal’s keeper, David Raya, after glancing off Nathan Ake’s shoulder.
