Olivier Giroud wiped the smiles of Manchester City and Tottenham’s faces when he equalised for Arsenal in their pivotal clash at the Etihad Stadium.
Sergio Aguero opened the scoring for City when he struck home in the eighth-minute but Giroud, who had only managed two goals in his previous 21 appearances, headed the Gunners level.

Arsenal know that a win will put them level with Spurs after Mauricio Pochettino’s team lost at home to Southampton earlier in the day.
For Arsenal fans, finishing above their north London rivals will make them forget all about their Premier League title collapse.
Many had their doubts about City heading into the game given their trip to Madrid in midweek but they came out of the blocks incredibly fast.
Aguero took his tally for the season to 24 league goals when he beat Mohamed Elneny to Fernandinho’s header and fired a left-footed shot past Petr Cech.
However, Giroud levelled the score moments later when his towering header from Alex Iwobi’s delivery flew past Joe Hart.
Hopefully, the remainder of the game is just as exciting as the opening 10 minutes.
