Arsenal and Manchester City went head-to-head this weekend.

Arsenal had a massive Premier League clash with Manchester City this weekend and it was the Blues who came out on top despite the Gunners taking an early lead.

Theo Walcott scored for Arsenal in the fifth minute but Leroy Sane equalised for the hosts and Raheem Sterling scored what proved to be the winner with 19 minutes remaining.

Four minutes later, with Arsenal desperately searching for a second goal of their own, manager Arsene Wenger opted to take off Francis Coquelin and replace him with Olivier Giroud.

Coquelin has featured 20 times for Arsenal in all competitions this season. However he is not every fan’s cup of tea, with many preferring Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka.
