Watch: A statistical breakdown of Leroy Sané’s goal against Arsenal

Manchester City scored three exquisite goals in the first half of Thursday night’s game against Arsenal, practically putting the tie to bed by half-time. The second half, other than Ederson saving a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty, was largely a non-event, but Blues are still buzzing about the goals.

One goal that in particular highlighted Pep Guardiola’s philosophy was a sublime team move that ended with Leroy Sané cleverly cutting in front of Héctor Bellerín to finish.

And a new video shows the high level of technical quality and passing involved in a move that led to an easy finish for Leroy. In total, the build-up had 18 uninterrupted passes, 1.74 touches per player, and a total of 6 players involved.

It really was a masterpiece, evidence of what Guardiola has built at City.
