Janusz Michallik still believes Mikel Arteta can be successful at Arsenal but several changes need to be made (1:05)

Manchester City extended their winning streak in all competitions to 18 appearances after a 1-0 win at Arsenal on Sunday

Raheem Sterling’s early first-half header proved to be the winning goal as Pep Guardiola’s side restored their 10-point lead to the top of the Premier League table

City were undisturbed throughout the 90 minutes but lacked cruelty in front of goal to extend their lead

Arsenal weathered the storm well early in the game, but couldn’t find an equalizer and remain 10th in the table

“We knew it would be one of the toughest, but we scored early and we could control it,” said Guardiola “The first 10-15 minutes were so good, then the next half hour they were much better than us

“The feeling is that they are close In the second half we needed something to be more efficient in our pressing and we were much better”

City started off brilliantly and scored within two minutes as an unmarked Sterling headed for Riyad Mahrez’s cross

The visitors threatened to run away with the match after the goal, but were not clinical enough

As a result, Arsenal turned into the game towards the end of half time with Kieran Tierney posing a threat down the left side, but City goalkeeper Ederson was not tested thoroughly

Ilkay Gundogan nearly continued his impressive goal form 10 minutes after the break, but his curling shot was ruled out by Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno

Joao Cancelo also almost doubled City’s lead with 10 minutes remaining, but his point-blank shot just missed the target

Gabriel Jesus could have scored a second in the stoppage time, but caught fire from inside the box as City claimed victory

“When we conceded the first goal it put us in a difficult situation It was tough With their training and the players they use they are really comfortable,” said the manager of Arsenal Mikel Arteta “We didn’t do it in the first 10 minutes”

The 18-game winning streak, already the longest in England’s top-flight game, extends the longest span of Guardiola’s managerial career, with City outscoring opponents 47-6 in the race

“We are only thinking about the next one”, added Guardiola “The race was amazing – I could not have expected it, but it is good”
