Manchester City fans react on Twitter to Arsenal draw - "A game of two halves..."

Manchester City's tricky trip to the Emirates Stadium ended in a 1-1 draw, as both sides fought hard in a close encounter.

Having watched Chelsea lose 1-0 at Crystal Palace today, Manchester City had the chance to go top of the Premier League table on goal difference, but faced a tough challenge against fellow top four side Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium - and City will feel that they missed their chance.

Manuel Pellegrini's side came out of the traps flying, and David Silva's goal gave City a first half lead and in truth, it could and maybe should have been more. They were left to rue their missed chances as Mathieu Flamini drew the Gunners level shortly after half time, and that's the way it stayed as neither side could find a winner.

The draw leaves City in third place, and with Liverpool facing Tottenham tomorrow, Brendan Rodgers' side have the chance to take the lead at the top of the table - though City's two games in hand on Liverpool and Chelsea are still vitally important to the title picture.

City fans were understandably disappointed that their side couldn't hang on for a win in North London, but the majority acknowledged that the destiny of the title still lies in their hands - though some called for Alvaro Negredo to play instead of Edin Dzeko, who endured a frustrating night.
