Arsenal earn a well deserved point at the Etihad Stadium

Manchester City was lucky to get a draw at home against the Arsenal. Manchester City struggled against an Arsenal team that looked the business. The Gunners gave the English Premier League a stern warning that even with Robin van Persie going to Manchester United, the North London club is still a force to reckon with! The Away supporters even had the audacity  to tease the City faithful when Koscielny scored a late equaliser.

Against the run of play Manchester City went ahead 5 minutes before the end of the first half with a Joleon Lescott header. However, Wenger’s team should real guts and determination to keep probing and searching for that equaliser that eventually came just inside ten minutes before the final whistle.

It was quite noticeable that Mancini was not his usual confident self, and would have quite pleased to get the point to continue their unbeaten home record to 32 matches starting December 2010. In fact, City could have lost it as a last minute shot from Gervinho, but it was not to be.

Online betting operators would have been pleased with the result, as a draw always means that bookmakers get to keep most of the punters’ cash. The draw means that Manchester City slips down to seventh place while Arsenal climb to fifth the Premier League table. But with both teams maintaining their unbeaten starts to this season, we all know there is still more to come!
