It was a typical Sunday afternoon for Arsenal fans at the Emirates, put through the wringer emotionally by the side they love, and rescued right at the death by Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez, who despite missing 3 of his last 4 penalties showed the calmness and petulance that one has come to expect with greatness as he stroked home the winner for the home team in the 98th minute of the game.

The opening hour of the match is exactly what one has come to expect from Arsenal over the years, dominate the contest but struggle to break down a well oiled defence at home.

Tottenham Hotspur escaped the Etihad Stadium with a point despite two goalkeeping errors from skipper Hugo Lloris, as they battled back from 2-0 down to grab a share of the spoils against Manchester City.

Spurs were lucky to still be in the game at half time after having been comprehensively outplayed by a Manchester City side that appeared to have forgotten the route to goal. Hugo Lloris seemed determined to help the Citizens as he made two uncharacteristic errors to gift the home side a 2-0 lead, but some debatable penalty decisions and two good goals from Spurs in the second half saw them erase the deficit and leave Manchester still very much in second place in the Premier League standings.

The pressure is well and truly on Manchester City Manager Pep Guardiola after the Citizens were handed a thumping 4-0 defeat at the hands of Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday evening. Romelu Lukaku set the ball rolling for the Toffees with a strike just after the half hour mark, having been set up by Belgian international teammate Kevin Mirallas.
