Arsenal 1-0 Manchester City | Premier League highlights

Gabriel Martinelli fired Arsenal to a battling 1-0 win over Manchester City to breath fresh impetus into the Gunners’ quest for a first Premier League title in 20 years.

A largely forgettable encounter at Emirates Stadium appeared to be ambling towards a goalless draw, with City midfielder Mateo Kovacic remaining on the field after two rash first-half challenge set to be the main talking point.

But Mikel Arteta sent on Martinelli at halftime three other players introduced from the bench were involved in the game-winning moment three minutes from time.

Thomas Partey’s raking ball was won by Takehiro Tomiyasu, Kai Havetz held up play expertly and Martinelli drove home via a wicked deflection off Nathan Ake to hand City back-to-back Premier League defeats for the first time since December 2018.

You have to go three years further back to find Arsenal’s previous league win over City and Emirates Stadium descended into raptures as the final whistle ended 12 consecutive defeats in this top-flight matchup.
