Manchester City secured another 3-0 win over Arsenal in a short space of four days and Leroy Sane put on an exceptional performance for the league leaders.
The former Schalke winger scored a goal and set up another for his side on a snowy night in North London. Sane’s movement, flair and his devastating pace was too much to handle for the Arsenal midfield and defence.

The Etihad outfit are now 16 points clear at the top of the table thanks to goals from Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Leroy Sane.
Arsenal had the chance to score but their new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang failed to convert his penalty at a crucial stage in the game.
Despite improving their performance after the thrashing at Wembley, Arsenal were carved apart far too easily.
Arsene Wenger was already under a lot of pressure after the League cup final defeat and things have gone from bad to worse now. It will be interesting to see how the Gunners regroup and bounce back from this now.
Here is how the fans reacted to Leroy Sane’s performance on Twitter.
Leroy Sane is the player United fans think Martial is

Do you reckon Hector Bellerin has nightmares about Leroy Sane? I do…

Leroy Sane is just next level beast against top 6 teams. At 22 he is already a World Class winger. Can’t think of many left wingers better than him.
Just imagine the things he will do when he is 24… ??? pic.twitter.com/5t2ONbNXxQ

Leroy Sané is the type of player I’d replace Cristiano with in a year or two, have got it all in his locker.

Leroy Sane is one of the most delightful players to watch, honest to God actual goosebumps at times, when running into players directly, usually only Hazard does that to me.
