FULL TIME: Arsenal 3-2 Manchester City

The Gunners end pre-season with a win over Manchester City but at what cost? Sergio Aguero gave City the lead before Alex Iwobi found the equaliser just after half-time.

Arsenal then scored two goals in 12 minutes - first from Theo Walcott and another from Chuba Akpom before Kelechi Iheanacho scored at the other end.

The game ended on a sour note when Gabriel Paulista went down injured and the defender was in tears as he was stretchered off. With Per Mertesacker also out for a few months, a centre-back now becomes Arsene Wenger's biggest priority before they face Liverpool next Sunday in the first Premier League game of the season. 

...

90+9'  Game over. Arsenal will be happy with the win, but the injury casts a shadow over it. Guardiola can't be happy with the display his team put on.

...

90+8'  Bielik comes on as Gabriel is carried off the field. Play resumes.

...

90+6'  Everybody looks on in concern as Gabriel is still receiving treatment on the field. This is terrible news for everybody at Arsenal, who already have issues with injured players.

...

90+3'  Iheanacho and Gabriel are both writhing on the ground after a clash. Gabriel looks like he's seriously hurt. He might have to be stretchered off.

...

90+2'  City are mounting attack after attack, but it just doesn't seem to be happening for them. Too little too late, perhaps.

...
...

87'  Goal for Iheanacho. A lovely ball in from Navas found its way straight to the striker's head, who calmly nodded it in. Could this be a dramatic finish?

...
...

85'  Goal for Chuba Akpom. Terrible defending by City. A poor pass gave away possession in their own box, and Akpom was never going to miss from there.

...
...
...

82'  There's been an interruption in play as a little boy somehow found his way onto the playing surface. He must be having the time of his life as the steward escorts him away.

...
...
...

78'  De Bruyne plays a sweet low pass across the box to find Toure in a decent amount of space, but Toure skies it.

...

77'  More changes. Mathieu Debuchy replaces Hector Bellerin, and Gibbs takes Monreal's place.

...
...

73'  Another goal for Arsenal. It's Theo Walcott this time. He dances past a couple of defenders, has a give and go with Sanchez and coolly places the ball in the bottom right corner.

...
...

71'  Manchester City have had a decent spell of possession, slowly trying to turn the screws on Arsenal.

...

69'  Alex Iwobi makes way for Joel Campbell.

...

69'  Yaya Toure and Iheanacho have entered the fray for Manchester City.

...
...

67'  Navas and Kevin De Bruyne come on for City, while Cazorla replaces Ramsey for the Gunners.
