Manchester City were coolness personified while Arsenal froze in the Premier League on Thursday night.
It was a second embarrassment in four days for Arsene Wenger and his side against City, following Sunday’s EFL Cup final humbling at Wembley.
Bernardo Silva warmed the visitors’ cockles on a frigid London evening with his 14th-minute opener.
Leroy Sane danced through a stand-offish Gunners defence before squaring for the Portuguese star, who switched feet and clipped gorgeously over Petr Cech.
Aaron Ramsey could have pulled level with a snapshot on 23 minutes, only for Ederson to launch himself into a diving save.
Sane was at it again when he helped Sergio Aguero to set up David Silva for the second.
The shaven-headed Spaniard polished off a smart move inside the Arsenal box in the 28th minute, leaving the home side frozen out of the contest yet again.
And Sane ensured a distinctly frosty reception for the hosts from a sparse home crowd as they went down the tunnel at half time minutes later.
After Aguero had exchanged passes with Kevin de Bruyne down the right channel, the German’s first touch in the box was enough to squeeze the ball over the line as he followed in.
And only Cech’s close-range reflexes prevented an unthinkable fourth before the break as City threatened to run riot.
The icy chill around the Emirates was hardly helped when Ederson palmed away a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty five minutes after the break.
Nicolas Otamendi had clattered Henrikh Mkhitaryan like a polar bear in a china shop, only for the forward to flunk his 12-yard test.
It was cold-hearted cruise control from there on in for Pep Guardiola’s visitors, who extend their EPL lead to a ludicrous 16 points once more.
