Pep Guardiola’s City were held to a 0-0 draw by Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal on Sunday as the result helped Liverpool stay atop the league table.

Premier League champions Manchester City were held to a 0-0 draw by Arsenal at the Etihad on Sunday as the result helped Liverpool stay atop the league table after their 2-1 win against Brighton earlier in the day.

In a game of few chances at Etihad Stadium, defending champion City came closest to finding a winner when Nathan Ake headed straight at goalkeeper David Raya from a corner.

The goalless draw ended City’s run of scoring in its last 57 home games.

Liverpool’s 2-1 win against Brighton earlier in the day means it is two points clear of second-place Arsenal, with City a point further back in third.

In what was the last meeting between any of the three title rivals before the end of the campaign, the game failed to live up to the hype, with both teams canceling each other out.

City had totally dominated this fixture in recent times, having won the previous eight home meetings against Arsenal. That included a 4-1 win last April, which played a key part in City overhauling the Londoners in the race for the title last season.

A repeat never looked likely as the visitors defended stubbornly to snuff out City’s attackers in the final third. Having beaten City at Emirates Stadium in October, Arsenal has taken four points off Pep Guardiola’s side.

Arsenal’s best opportunities came from former City striker Gabriel Jesus, who twice fired wide in the first half and was close to connecting from close range after the break.
