Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne scored a brilliant opening goal in the Premier League clash against Arsenal – just moments after being denied a penalty.

The hosts applied earlier pressure on the Premier League leaders at the Etihad Stadium.

De Bruyne went down inside the area under the challenge of Thomas Partey, and City made huge shouts for a penalty.

However, referee Michael Oliver waved away the claims and play was allowed to continue.

Speaking on talkSPORT, former Arsenal man Perry Groves said: “That looks like a penalty because he’s come across De Bruyne and stopped him getting to the ball. If that’s not a penalty, Arsenal have got away with one.”

Ex-City star Stuart Pearce added: “If he gave a penalty on the pitch, he would’ve stuck with it.”

Groves replied: “It’s not horrendous. But they got away with one. That’s 80 per cent a penalty.”

It was a huge moment early on in the clash, but De Bruyne was on hand to score the opener just minutes later.

The Belgian went on a solo run from the middle of the pitch from Erling Haaland’s takedown and fired in a superb effort.

City fans were sent into raptures after the goal, which could prove crucial for the rest of the match.

John Stones doubled their lead on the stroke of half-time, with City being the far better side on the night.

Eight minutes into the second half, De Bruyne netted his second of the match, with Arsenal crumbling at the back.

Rob Holding scored a consolation goal in the final few minutes, with City holding on to claim a huge three points as Erling Haaland scored his 49th goal of the season.

With two games in hand over the Gunners, they could very well be set to win a third consecutive league title.
