Pep Guardiola’s side took apart a soporific North London side, which put even more pressure on Arsene Wenger from the fans at the final whistle.
Whilst Arsenal created very little in the final third, Manchester City pinned their opponents down with attacking movements that has since them dominate the Premier League, which they have all but won this season.
Arsenal couldn’t find a way to break down City, and when Sergio Aguero lobbed Ospina after a mistake by defender Mustafi, they soon started to forget their elimination from the FA Cup the previous week at Wigan, in the shock of the tournament.
With Arsenal trying to find form in the league, after a disappointing loss in Europe a few days before, the Gunners were struck down by a quick double blow of goals as first Vincent Kompany was put in to finish before Silva killed the final off.
With Champions League action to come for Manchester City, even more silverware maybe in the trophy cabinet alongside Premier League and Cup titles.
For Arsenal, adrift of fourth spot in Premier League, will be hoping to go all the way in the Europa League, like Manchester United last season. They face AC Milan in the next round.
