Sterling beauty gives dominant Man City halftime lead

Manchester City has controlled play against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, but only once found a way past Petr Cech.

That came via Raheem Sterling, the clear star of the first half, as the young Englishman fired a shot from atop the box that took a tiny turn before beating a screened Cech.

Man City has had most of the ball, and Arsenal has already used a sub after Alex Maitland-Niles couldn’t suffer through a leg injury. Stephane Lichtsteiner has taken his place at left back.
