Hector Bellerin and Mesut Ozil react to Arsenal win on Twitter

Arsenal stars expressed their delight at big victory over Manchester City.

Arsenal earned a big win over Manchester City despite a nail biting finish.

The Gunners did the damage at the end of the first half thanks to goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud.

A late goal from Yaya Toure set up a frenetic finish but the Gunners fully deserved their win.

Hector Bellerin and Mesut Ozil - who set up both goals - commented on Twitter after the victory.

Ozil's reference to '15' was a nod to the number of assists he now has for the season in Premier League games.

No other player in Europe's top five leagues is yet into double figures, with Angel di Maria of Paris Saint-Germain (Ozil's former Real Madrid teammate) closest with nine.

Arsenal are now two points behind league leaders Leicester City, and four clear of City who are their closest challengers. 

Arsene Wenger's side's next game is on Boxing Day, away to Southampton, who lost 2-0 at home to Tottenham at the weekend.
