Bacary Sagna and his Manchester City team-mates revelled in Arsenal's failure to hold on for a 3-2 victory against Liverpool on Wednesday with Joe Allen's goal sending the Citizens' dressing room into a rapturous celebration.
According to the Mirror, City were quick to turn on the television following their 0-0 draw with Everton, keen on seeing the end result at Anfield. Arsenal were leading with one minute to go before Allen made it 3-3.
It kept Arsenal on top of the Premier League table, but the Gunners stars were in no mood to celebrate. They looked devastated by the result, knowing full well they had a chance to become outright title favourites.

For City, the mood was the exact opposite. Their disappointing draw against the Toffees all of sudden became one point gained instead of two points lost. Sagna, who, of course, joined City from the Gunners in 2014, says he was happy to see his former club fold.
He told the same report: "I'm happy, yes, because this season we have a chance to win the league, a chance to start winning games again, like we did in the first part of the season.
"I'd say this [against Everton] was a good point on the night now. If Arsenal were five points ahead of us, it'd be very difficult to catch them. Liverpool managed to come back and, at the end of the day, we're still three points behind.
"We're still confident. We didn't win here against Everton, but we didn't lose either. When you can't win, don't lose."
Of course, Arsenal remain in command in the hunt for this season's title, but City have the chance to go top of the table in Saturday's game against Crystal Palace. Leicester play Aston Villa later in the day while the Gunners face Stoke City on Sunday.
And it will be a tough task for Arsene Wenger's men to come out with all three points. The Potters famously beat Arsenal 3-2 at the same venue last season and even went in at half-time 3-0 up. If anything, Stoke have only improved since that day so there is every chance Arsenal could be staring up instead of looking down come next week.
