Arsenal players including Alexis and Bellerin react on Twitter to City win

Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Per Mertesacker and more were on Twitter after the 2-0 win against Manchester City.

Arsenal have pulled off perhaps their best performance of the season to defeat reigning Premier League champions Manchester City 2-0 at The Etihad Stadium.

Santi Cazorla netted from the penalty spot after Nacho Monreal was felled by Vincent Kompany to give Arsenal the lead. Then Olivier Giroud took them by surprise, heading home an excellent delivery from Cazorla as the City defence slept on the job.

It was a fantastic defensive performance from Arsenal, as well as a ruthless one going forward.

Many a player deserves accolades for the shift they put in. Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal were superb at full-back. Alexis Sanchez worked tirelessly throughout while Olivier Giroud provided the perfect screen up top. Francis Coquelin was superb in the holding midfield role.

The man of the match however was Cazorla. The Spaniard was superb in midfield both defensively and offensively and was rightly given the credit for his performance, which was perhaps one of the best individual performances of the campaign.

The Arsenal players seemed pretty happy with the performance, with plenty of them taking to Twitter to share their joy with their followers...
