Arsenal Stun City at Etihad



Arsenal leapfrogged Tottenham Hotspurs, and moved into fifth place following their shock 2-0 win over champions Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
Santi Cazorla scored the first goal for the Gunners when he put away a 24th minute penalty following a foul in the box by Vincent Kompany on Nacho Monreal.
The Champions managed to keep the score at 1-0 in a tepid first half that saw them make no attempt on Arsenal goal.
Then, the home side came out with all guns blazing in the second half, but saw their multiplied efforts rebuffed by an unusually resolute Arsenal defence.
Then, the Gunners secured closure when Olivier Giroud ran onto a pin-point Cazorla free kick to score the second with the City defence caught flat footed.
Arsene Wenger then confirmed the new Arsenal philosophy of ‘holding what you have’, by sending on Kieran Gibbs and Mathieu Flamini for the final 10 minutes, as Man City threatened.
