Both teams needed a win in this match between the two clubs at the Emirates last season. Arsenal were still in the march to finish third, while Manchester City were desperate to stay in the title race.

After dominating the match, the Gunners got their deserved-winner just a few minutes from time, as star man Mikel Arteta won the ball in midfielder before thumping a shot into the bottom corner past Joe Hart.

In the days not long before City became Citeh, Arsenal travelled to Eastlands in the hunt for Premier League glory, and led the way in the table.

The Gunners took the field against a strong City team, but made the victory look easy, running out 3-1 winners.

With Arsenal already a goal to the good, Eduardo control Emmanuel Adebayor’s knockdown on his chest before acrobatically volleying the ball past Joe Hart to double the visitors lead.

Jose Antonio Reyes

Another 3-1 victory for the Gunners came in Manchester a few seasons earlier, but in rather different circumstances.

Arsenal were desperate to finish above North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the last ever season at Highbury, and simply had to beat City in order to keep up with their neighbours.

Arsene Wenger’s side had a 2-1 lead going into the final seven minutes of the match before Thierry Henry laid off Jose Antonio Reyes for the Spaniard to net his second and Arsenal’s third in emphatic fashion.

This will no doubt be one the goals that sprung to mind when you were reading the introduction.

In the unbeaten season, already with a one-goal lead, Thierry Henry picked up a Robert Pires pass, took a touch, and then curled an unstoppable effort into the top corner in front of the North Bank at Highbury.

The celebration wasn’t bad either.
