But the match was mired in controversy when Arsenal took the lead and was undone by two huge VAR calls for penalties in both boxes.

Key defender Gabriel was then dispatched after the quick-fire yellow card.

And City midfielder Rodri splashed in as a last-gasp winner before pelting stones at bottles to celebrate in front of home supporters.

It was a ball from De Bruyne that scrambled into the penalty area that resulted in Rodri’s winner.

And former gunner Fabregas has now revealed how Arsenal defenders may have prevented De Bruyne from making City’s golden opportunity.

Fabregas tweeted: “When De Bruyne has an open ball in the last third, as a defender you need to start falling immediately.

“Cities are great at running past the last line.”

De Bruyne is in his seventh season with champion Pep Guardiola.

And he remains a key figure in the midfield, contributing six goals and two assists this season.

De Bruyne also finished eighth at the 2021 Ballon d’Or, the highest City player in the rankings.
