Arsenal twice hit the woodwork as Barclays Premier League title rivals Manchester City somehow left Emirates Stadium with a goalless draw.

Robin van Persie and Cesc Fabregas both saw their first-half shots come back of the base of the same post.

City then had keeper Joe Hart to thank after he produced a wonderful fingertip save to deny van Persie on the hour as Arsenal had to be content with only a point. Both teams finished with 10 men after full-backs Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna were shown straight red cards by referee Mike Jones for a needless clash on the far touchline.
