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.

Aguero's goal

Giroud's equaliser

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.
