David Silva sent Manchester City back to the top of the Barclays Premier League with the only goal in a 1-0 win over Arsenal.

The Spaniard slid in his sixth goal of the season after 53 minutes at the Etihad Stadium to finally give City reward for some brilliant attacking play.

Yet Arsenal, although perhaps lucky not to have Alex Song sent off, threatened on a number of occasions and Joe Hart saved well from Thomas Vermaelen late on.
