Contentious goals from Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling earned Manchester City a come from behind 2-1 victory against Arsenal in what was quite literally a game of two halves at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Arsenal took an early lead in the game in just the 4th minute as some woeful defending from Manchester City allowed Hector Bellerin to run with the ball up the pitch and find Alexis Sanchez in the Citizens' half. The Arsenal forward was allowed time and space to turn and find Theo Walcott in the box, who despite a poor first touch, had enough time to poke the ball home past Claudio Bravo to give Arsenal the lead.

Chelsea moved six points clear of Arsenal and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League standings courtesy of a 1-0 win away to bottom of the league Sunderland. Cesc Fabregas scored the only goal of the game in the 40th minute, capitalizing on a rare start with a precise finish from Willian's square pass.

Chelsea bossed the game and will be a tad disappointed not to have won it by a bigger margin, and in the end owe a debt of thanks to goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who produced an excellent late save to ensure a 10th straight win on the bounce for the blues.
