FULL-TIME: Manchester City 2-2 Arsenal
...
...
90+2': Another YELLOW CARD. City getting frustrated and Fernandinho brings down Olivier Giroud with a needless foul.
...
90+1': YELLOW CARD. Alexis Sanchez looks to race into City's half but Otamendi brings him down with City's high line under threat.
...
THREE MINUTES of time added on!
...
88': CLANG! Bony has the chance to take the lead but his side-footed volley from a cross comes off the crossbar with Cech beaten!
...
87': Arsenal make yet another desperate clearance as De Bruyne has another chance to score inside the box. Shouts for handball are denied.
...
86': Free-kick for Arsenal as Alexis Sanchez is brought down by Fernandinho. The Chilean is set to take it himself. He sends it into the box and Koscielny gets a header off but he was offside!
...
FIVE minutes to go. Arsenal are taking their time with goal kicks and throw-ins.
...
84': STOPPED! Yaya Toure looks to charge through the midfield like a runaway train before Coquelin makes the all-important tackle to stop him in his tracks.
...
83': Arsenal are sitting back and only looking to counter when they win the ball back. Even Alexis Sanchez is defending inside the Arsenal box.
...
82': Corner for City but Arsenal defend in numbers and are happy to hoof it away. All 11 men were in the box for the corner.
...
10 minutes to go in the second half. Still 2-2. A point would suit Arsenal with Aston Villa to play in the final home game while City really need all three points.
...
78': DOUBLE SUBSTITUTION: Wilfried Bony and Yaya Toure come on for Jesus Navas and Fernando.
...
...
76': SUBSTITUTION: Mohamed Elneny comes off for Francis Coquelin.
...
74': ALMOST! Aguero attempts a one-two with De Bruyne whose lob over the defence is met by Aguero's left foot. But the shot goes just wide of the far post. So close!
...
...
...
72': DE BRUY....NOO! The free-kick is on target but straight at Cech who opts to punch it out for a corner. The corner kick is sent to Aguero at the far post but his shot on the turn is wide of the post.
...
71': YELLOW CARD: De Bruyne tries to evade Gabriel at the edge of the box and he's brought down. Free-kick for Man City, De Bruyne set to take it.
...
...
70': SUBSTITUTION: Pellegrini takes off Iheanacho and Raheem Sterling comes on to play the final 20 minutes.
...
68': GOOOAAALLL! It's Alexis Sanchez! A one-two with Giroud sees the French striker lay it off for him in acres of space. Alexis sends Hart the wrong way and finds the back of the net. 2-2!
...
67': WALCOTT... SAVED! He beats the offside trap and looks to lob it over Hart but his touch is too heavy and it goes out for a goal kick.
...
66': It's Ramsey and Walcott again! The Welsh midfielder takes Clichy out of the game with a pass to release Walcott but his cross into the six-yard box is cleared by an alert Otamendi with Giroud just behind him.
...
64': Ramsey finds Walcott and he skips past Clichy into the box before Mangala makes a tackle. City are livid a corner has been awarded as the ball seemed to go off Walcott last. Arsenal fail to make good use of the referee's gift though.
...
61': Bellerin accelerates down the right and slips in a pass towards the edge of the box. Giroud tries to volley but is way off target.
...
60': Arsenal have suddenly burst into life. First a Monreal cross is cleared by Otamendi before Giroud pulls the trigger. A second cross finds Giroud offside before he heads over.
...
59': Arsenal make their second substituion. Iwobi comes off for Theo Walcott. Alexis moves out to the left and Walcott sticks to the right of Giroud.
...
58': Hello, the referee Anthony Taylor has just chested down a Wilshere lob and allowed City to counter-attack. Well-timed layoff for Fernandinho.
...
56': City are on the ascendancy here. They're moving up the field with purpose while Arsenal look a little lost, desperately trying to clear the ball and stop them in their tracks.
...
54': Iheanacho messes up another counter-attack. He drives through midfield and the counter actually saw City with the man advantage but a poor shot that is off-target sees the Etihad groan in unison.
...
51': GOOOAAALLL! Kevin De Bruyne makes it 2-1! Bellerin's cross is knocked at De Bruyne and he makes his way into the box and shoots low from outside the box. Cech dives to his right but can't prevent it from finding th eback of the net!
...
49': FERNANDINHOOOO... NOPE! The Brazilian is through on goal but the angle is too tight. He tries his luck anyway and it's way over the bar. Still 1-1.
...
47': City patiently working the ball around, looking for one single opening. Arsenal are camped in their half for the moment.
...
KICKOFF! The SECOND HALF is udnerway.
...
