The Gunners are still two-points clear but they have opened the door to Pep Guardiola’s men, who have two games in hand.

Despite three consecutive draws before tonight, Arsenal boss Arteta cut a clam figure in his pre-match interview at the Etihad.

Speaking to Arteta on BT Sport, Keown said: “Boss, you look incredibly relaxed this evening.”

And it did not take long before his old rival Scholes reacted, taking to Instagram to ridicule the ex-Arsenal star.

Adding to his story, Scholes wrote with a plethora of laughing emojis: “Did Martin Keown just call Arteta boss…”

Arsenal were the ones left red-faced after the game as City delivered a masterclass and could’ve had more than four.

Speaking exclusively to talkSPORT after the match, Arteta admitted his team was outplayed.

He said: “First of all I have to congratulate City. The better team won the game without a question of a doubt, and the disappointment comes with the way we performed, especially in the first half.

“We didn’t compete it, basically we lost every single duel in red areas, they got out of those red areas and attacked us in open spaces. We concede a set play, we concede a throw-in in our own half, and [Erling] Haaland is through on goal.

“It’s not nowhere near enough to win a game like that. It’s time to reflect, first of all accept the reality of what happened today and the fairness of the result and the performance, and now move on.

“There is still everything to play for and we are still there.”

When asked how damaging a defeat is to their title hopes, he replied: “What we have to do is be very clever now, it’s damaging today and tomorrow we have to move on.”
