...

Arsenal did not look up for it in the second half and they were duly punished by a more eager more up for it side. Arsene Wenger will not be a happy man in the dressing room.

...

Sane scored the equaliser for the home side firing his first goal for Manchester City before Raheem Sterling beat Cech at his near post to win it for the home side.

...

Manchester City were there for the taking in the first half and Arsene Wenger's plan seemed to be on point. They took the lead through Walcott but squandered many opportunities to double it. It came back to haunt them towards the end of the game as Guardiola's side came out after the restart and played the Gunners out of the park. 

...

The week goes from bad to worse for Arsenal as they suffer their second successive defeat and find themselves 9-points adrift of runaway leaders Chelsea.

...

This is Manchester City's first win over Arsenal in seven attempts and what a time to bring it.

...

It is all over at the Etihad and Manchester City leapfrog Arsenal and Liverpool into second place. 

...

Full-Time: Manchester City 2-1 Arsenal

...

90+4' Arsenal are sinking without a trace here. An abject week look to be coming towards an end for them. 

...

90+3' Yellow Card: Gabriel is booked for a foul on Silva. 

...

90+2' Arsenal are struggling to get the ball out of their own half let alone trouble the opposition.

...

90+1' Manchester City win a free-kick after Bellerin is adjudged to have pushed Sterling on the left flank. Time is running out for Arsenal. Will this be the end of their title challenge?

...

90' Indeed it is 4 minutes of added time and the crowd applaud it.

...

We expect 4 minutes to be added on here. Waiting for official confirmation.

...

89' Guardiola with some instructions to his players as Fernando remains down. Alexis looks distraught.

...

88' Yellow Card: Elneny is booked for a foul on Fernando and the Brazilian looks to be in agony. Trying to wind down the clock?

...

87' Ozil stands over it and it finds Gabriel but the defender fails to guide it goalwards and Bravo punches it out.

...

86' Arsenal have a free-kick in a decent position after Otamendi has a wild swing on Ozil.

...

86' Arsenal continue to probe as City are happy to sit back and hit on the counter. 

...

Arsenal look toothless and lack the edge. They were so much better in the first half but have been played off the park in the second half.

...

84' Substitution: Iheanacho comes on for De Bruyne. And now Guardiola brings on a striker. Taking the mickey out of Wenger?

...

83' Arsenal with their first shot of the half. Giroud's header is off target from Bellerin's cross.

...

82' Walcott is released down the right by Ozil with the Englishman attempting an ambitious chip which sails wide. Wasted Chance!

...

Arsenal look clueless as City continue to dominate. The Etihad is rocking with the fans at the top of their voices. Can Arsenal mount a late come back?

...

80' Yellow Card: De Bruyne is booked for a lunge on Gabriel.

...

78' Substitution: Elneny comes on for Chamberlain.

...

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain appears to have done him hamstring and the Englishman is coming off for Mohammed Elneny, less than 14 minutes after coming on. What a blow that is for Arsenal.

...

77' OFF THE POST! Navas immediately makes an impact and sends in an inviting cross that is directed goalwards but it cannons off the post and Arsenal survive.

...

76' Substitution: Jesus Navas comes on to replace the impressive Leroy Sane.

...

Wenger has thrown the kitchen sink here but Arsenal need to get a grip of the game first. They have been passengers in this half and have been outplayed in all departments by the home side.

...

75' Substitution: Olivier Giroud comes on to replace Francis Coquelin.

...

74' City try to break again but Koscielny is at hand to see the ball roll out for a goal-kick.

...

Arsenal have their work cut out now and they don't seem to have any idea what to do.

...

De Bruyne with a Hollywood cross-field ball to the youngster and he latches on to it before cutting in and unleashing a snap shot to the left of Cech. The veteran has been beaten on his near post once again.

...

71' GOOOOOOOOAAAALLL!!!! Raheem Sterling scores!!

...

70' Gabriel almost hands City the window to punish Arsenal but Cech is at hand to clear. Cech has the most passes for Arsenal thus far in the game.

...

69' Arsenal are trying to clear but are failing in their attempts. First it is Monreal whose attempt fails to get out of the box before Xhaka attempts another and fails in doing so. 

...

Will the missed chances from the first-half come back to haunt the Gunners? As of now, that looks to be the case.

...

67' Chamberlian gets his first touch on the ball and tries to curl it into the box from the left flank but fails to do so. 

...

Arsenal have failed to retain possession in this half and they need something to change. They are being overrun and outthought right now.
