Arsenal claim impressive point against Manchester City


Written by Chris Wheatley

A late Laurent Koscielny goal gave Arsenal a thoroughly deserved point against Premier League champions Manchester City.

The visiting Gunners side controlled large parts of the first half without being able to breach City’s net.

Ivorian forward Gervinho had a good chance in the 17th minute but his first touch let him down, while Lukas Podolski fired over the bar in the 25th minute following a cut back from full-back Carl Jenkinson.

However, despite all their pressure, Arsenal found themselves a goal behind at the break. David Silva swung in a corner which goalkeeper Vito Mannone flapped at, allowing centre-back Joleon Lescott the chance to head into the net, which he took.

Silva was again the creator early in the second half, but teammate Sergio Aguero was unable to convert his through pass inside the penalty area.

Arsenal were still the dominant force though and they almost levelled up proceedings in the 82nd minute, only for Joe Hart to turn Santi Cazorla’s rising effort just over the bar.

Nevertheless, from the resultant corner the away side did claim the equaliser. City failed to clear the lines and French defender Koscielny, a late replacement for the ill Thomas Vermaelen, reacted quickest to lift the ball into the roof of Hart’s net from eight yards out.
