City edge past Gunners

Published 4 Comments

Manchester City closed back up on Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester United with a 2-0 win at Arsenal - where both sides finished with 10 men.

Referee Mike Dean sent off Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny for wrestling Edin Dzeko to the floor, and although the Bosnian saw his penalty saved, via the post, City - who last won in the league at Arsenal in 1975 - took command with first-half goals from James Milner and then a tap-in for Dzeko.

Arsenal, who lost more ground on the top four, regrouped after the break, but were not able to find a way back into the game, even when City captain Vincent Kompany was sent off with 15 minutes left for a two-footed tackle on Jack Wilshere.
