Arsenal 2-1 Man City: Vote for Player Ratings/MotM!

First-half goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud, both assisted by—who else?—Mesut Özil gave Arsenal an early lead they never looked like relinquishing. While it's true that most of the first half saw Man City pushing their hosts further and further back, they could never quite a find way past the back four or Petr Čech. It wasn't until the 81st minute that Yaya Touré, nonchalant to the end, chipped it past Čech to put the outcome in doubt. The goal brought to life a squad that had otherwise looked a bit sluggish and indifferent after the first twenty minutes. and the last ten saw some sphincter-clenching moments. However, Man City left themselves to little time to fight their way back, and Arsenal escape with an emphatic, important victory. Get down to the poll and give our lads what they deserve!
