  • In a wonderful Premier League match, Lescott's goal is cancelled out by Koscielny. The future looks bright for Arsenal after having the better of the match against City. Will they be title contenders in the long term? Stay with us for all the post-match reaction.


    90 + 3
  • Cazorla has been my man of the match today. His passing has been typically excellent and kept Arsenal going even when they were behind.

    90 + 3
  • Garcia is booked for a shameless piece of pulling and a rugby tackle on Jenkinson after being completely beaten for legs by the Arsenal full-back.

    90 + 2
  • Seconds after blazing a great chance over the crossbar from the edge of the box in a snapshot of his performance, Gervinho is substituted and replaced by Coquelin.

    90 + 1
  • ADDED TIME: There will be a minimum of three minutes added time before the final whistle.

  • What is happening with Koscielny? He plays a wonderful little backheel flick to run the ball out of Arsenal's defence.

  • City are taking some of the sting out of Arsenal and are playing the ball around their defence.

  • Both sides are going for a winner. Walcott drives forward but then overruns the ball.

  • This has been an excellent match and has been played at an extremely high standard and style.

  • That was Aguero's last touch. Balotelli comes on in his place.

  • City almost immediately re-take the lead. At a corner, Kompany produces a overhead kick, which is saved by Mannone. Koscielny's follow-up clearance is then straight to Aguero but the striker cannot take advantage.

  • From the corner, Lescott's defensive header is weak. It drops straight to the feet of Koscielny and from close range he makes no mistake with a powerful right-foot effort into the back of the net. No chance for Hart this time.

  • GOAL KOSCIELNY (1-1)!!!

  • Cazorla lets rip with a 25-yard effort and Hart makes a brilliant save to tip it over for a corner. Arsenal are putting City under a lot of pressure.

  • Arsenal deal with the corner and get back on the front foot.

  • City break at pace through Toure after Silva tackles Jenkinson. but Toure leaves his pass to Aguero a little too late and the angle is too tight for the Argentine. His shot from 10 yards is saved for a corner by Mannone.

  • Excellent from Koscielny as, having been caught up field by a City counter-attack, he charges back and tackles Tevez.

  • City have dropped off a little since the introduction of Tevez. Arsenal are seeing more of the ball and are pushing further up the pitch.

  • Arteta goes on a burst forward but seems to run out of a few ideas/options before prodding the ball out for a City throw-in.
