The game was an enthralling encounter that provided end-to-end football with the neutrals fully entertained.
Both teams needed victories for various reasons; Manchester City needed a win to go back to the top of the pile while the Gunners needed a victory to continue their resurgence to challenge for a Champions League spot.
A scrappy goal from David Silva was enough to hand the moneybags victory over Arsene Wenger’s side, but the Gunners shouldn’t be downhearted because the performance was good enough to hand them three points on another day.
Despite the painful loss, there are a few positives to be taken from the game. Here’s my take.
