Arsenal vs. Manchester City: 6 Things We Learned
Kirsty Wigglesworth

Arsenal's season looks to be back on track, even if their Premier League title ambitions are over, after a rare Mathieu Flamini goal rescued a 1-1 draw against Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium.

In a one-sided first half, City dominated and deservedly took the lead when David Silva slammed home from close range. The visitors then went on to tactically bully the Gunners, who looked like the occasion was getting to them.

Somehow, Arsene Wenger's team managed to get to half-time without conceding another.

To their credit, Arsenal were the better side in the second period, as Santi Cazorla dictated the ebb and flow of the game. 

Cazorla and Silva seemed to be embroiled in a creative battle to gain Vicente del Bosque's attention. With the World Cup in Brazil looming, it is easy to see why.

While Cazorla was obviously Arsenal's best player, arguably their most important player was Flamini. The Frenchman covered every inch of ground in the second half and ghosted into the box to score his first goal for Arsenal since 2008.

Here, Bleacher Report offers six things we learned from Arsenal vs. Manchester City.
