A top-of-the-table clash against the unbeaten Gunners was a big test for Brian Barry-Murphy’s side in their first game of 2023.
But they stormed into a 5-0 lead by half-time after a wonderful first-half performance at the Academy Stadium.
Alex Robertson and Carlos Borges both scored twice with Dire Mebude getting the other just before the break.
And Mebude added a sixth in the second half as City took Arsenal’s spot at the top of Premier League 2.
