Manchester City and Chelsea recorded wins in their outings on Sunday against fellow title contenders in the Premier League.

While City were emphatic with a 3-1 win over Arsenal, Chelsea dug deep to beat Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United by a lone goal at Stamford Bridge.

As it turned out on Sunday, Alex Iwobi will be heading to the Super Eagles camp on a losing note as his English club, Arsenal, were beaten 3-1 by a dominant Manchester City team at the Etihad Stadium.

Iwobi played for 78 minutes before he was replaced by Jack Wilshere.

Goals from Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero gave City a two-goal cushion which was to be reduced by Alexandre Lacazette in the 65th-minute.

However, Gabriel Jesus sealed City victory with a third off the bench.

For the Chelsea vs Manchester United game, Alvaro Morata’s stunning header was the difference between the two teams as the Blues secured a nervy 1-0 win over the Red Devils.
