Sterling returns Man City to winning ways

West Ham v Man City

Winger's first-half goal enough to beat Arsenal and earn second victory of the season

Raheem Sterling's first-half strike returned Manchester City to winning ways, beating Arsenal 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium. 

City started strongly and got their rewards on 23 minutes, with Sterling converting after Bernd Leno had parried Phil Foden's shot. 

Bukayo Saka almost levelled five minutes before half-time, but his shot after a one-two with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was saved by Ederson.

Nicolas Pepe tested Ederson with a header in the first minute of the second half and curled a free-kick wide as Arsenal searched in vain for an equaliser. 

City's first league victory since Matchweek 2 extended their run of consecutive Premier League wins over Arsenal to seven and moved them to up ninth on seven points. 

Arsenal have nine points, having played a match more, and stay fifth.
