London (AP) - Leader Manchester City remains the team of the hour in the English Premier League.

Three days before the Champions League round of 16 against Borussia Mönchengladbach, Man City deservedly won 1-0 (1-0) at Arsenal on Sunday and thus celebrated their 13th league success in a row.

With ten points ahead after 25 games, the team of former Bayern coach Pep Guardiola in England is clearly on a master course.

After just two minutes Man City took the lead through Raheem Sterling at London's Emirates Stadium.

Then the Guardiola-Elf controlled the German national player Ilkay Gündogan and kept the hosts away from their own goal.

Arsenal stagnated with 34 points in the middle of the table.

After two championships, one FA Cup success and three league cup wins, Guardiola is still missing an international success with Man City.

On Wednesday he wants to take the next step with his team in the first leg of the first leg of the premier class.

Due to the travel restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, the game will not take place in Gladbach, but in Budapest.
