Manchester City seized control of the Premier League title race as Kevin De Bruyne inspired a crucial 4-1 rout of crumbling leaders Arsenal on Wednesday.

De Bruyne scored twice and set up John Stones’ goal before Erling Haaland netted to cap a stylish display that showed why City have been champions four times in the last five seasons.

Second-placed City are now just two points behind Arsenal with two games in hand.
