  • 93'

    Full time! The points are shared in an exciting game at the Emirates. Arsenal needed a result and they showed a positive attitude to come back twice after going behind to get the draw. Both teams would have liked the 3 points but it ends 2-2. Thanks for joining us, until next time.

  • 90'

    3 stoppage time added onto the end of the game and Arsenal have a free kick in a dangerous area.

  • 88'

    David Silva makes way for Pablo Zabaleta.

  • 85'

    City seem to be asking more questions late on in this game but the three points are well up for grabs.

  • 80'

    Big mistake. Otamendi misses an easy clearance and the ball falls kindly to Ozil who couldn't capitalise on the opportunity.

  • 76'

    Alex Iwobi comes on for Danny Welbeck. Arsene Wenger is stating his intentions as he looks to find the winning goal with a positive change.

  • 72'

    City hold a lot of possession in the last few moments but haven't made any noticeable chances. Arsenal look to be sitting tight to play the counter attacking game.

  • 68'

    Theo Walcott makes way for Olivier Giroud. The big Frenchman scored in both fixtures against City last season.

  • 65'

    Big chance for City! Aguero find Navas's cross on the head but the lack of pace made it comfortable for Ospina to save.

  • 62'

    Stones went flying in on Monreal and Arsenal are awarded the free kick. It was a silly challenge by the English centre half.

  • 58'

    The atmosphere has gone up notches since the Arsenal equaliser. City are looking for the lead again and this game has become very end to end. Otamendi clashes with Ospina who is looked at by the physios.

  • 53'

    GOAL!! City were asleep on the corner kick and Mustafi headers the ball passed Caballero bruilliantly. It's all square at the Emirates again! Arsenal 2-2 Man City.

  • 52'

    Chance for Kun Aguero! Navas delivered a fantastic ball into the box but the pace was too much for Aguero to header the ball towards goal.

  • 49'

    Koscielny was changed at half time and was replaced by Gabriel. Sterling came off for Toure as City try to bolster up the midfield with assurance and quality.

  • 46'

    Kick-off! Arsenal get the second half underway!

  • 45'

    Halftime! Arsenal go into the break trailing 2-1 to Manchester City. The Citizens were on top for most of the half but Arsenal will always be in a game with the quality they possess. We're in for another exciting 45 minutes! Second half to follow shortly.

  • 45'

    2 stoppage time minutes added onto the first half!

  • 45'

    Welbeck looked through on goal but the referee did well to spot a hand band while trying to bring the ball down. Free kick to City!

  • 42'

    GOAL!!! City have their lead back in a flash. Aguero smashes the ball into the back of the net from a very tight corner. Ospina could have done a bit more but City won't mind! Arsenal 1-2 Man City.

  • 40'

    GOAL!!! Arsenal have turned it around. Mustafi headers the ball back into the danger area and Walcott got it out of his feet and put it in the back of the net. Arsenal 1-1 Man City.

  • 37'

    Sterling attempts to wriggle around Monreal on the wing but the ball goes out for a corner. Stones does well to get a head on the delivery but the ball goes wide of the goal.

  • 34'

    Xhaka receives a yellow card for showing studs to Otamendi's heel. On the other end, Sanchez earns Arsenal a free kick in a dangerous area.

  • 31'

    Ozil seeks Sanchez on the left wing but the Chilean was caught offside. This is a very open game so far, both teams are going at it!

  • 28'

    The visitors find themselves with more of the ball. Sanchez goes down in the box but it was a fantastic tackle from Fernandinho.

  • 25'

    Arsenal have done well to pick up their momentum. City have been without good possession for a good few moments and the Gunners are asking questions now.

  • 21'

    Big chance for the home side. Ozil finds space in the opposition box, twists and shoots but his shot lacked any power to trouble Caballero.

  • 18'

    Sanchez does well to defend and start a counter attack for Arsenal but Xhaka's cross field pass was a poor one.

  • 14'

    A late challenge on David Silva by Coquelin, who picks up a yellow card for the foul. Free kick to City.

  • 11'

    Two big chances fell for City! De Bruyne places the ball which unfortunately for him hits the upright. Silva finds the rebound but can't find the back of the net.
