In yesterday’s game, Arsenal and Manchester City played out a hard fought draw in front of a pulsating crowd at the Emirates Stadium. It was a match which was played at a relentless pace from the first minute itself, with sustained spells of pressure from both sides, battling midfield displays and swift counters.
City were shot into the lead by Sergio Aguero, who combined with Navas and dispatched a strong effort into the net. This was against the run of play in the first half and seemed to put Arsenal off their stride. But a rejuvenated team came out in the second half, and Wilshere equalised with a magical finish. A reflexive volley by Alexis Sanchez then put the Gunners into the lead. A late header by Demichelis off a corner cut short the Arsenal celebrations however, and the teams ended the game level after a brilliant display by both sides.
Here are some of the best tweets from yesterday regarding the game, by both players and fans –
Wilshire is the Ashley Young of Arsenal. Opponents can do whatever they want to him, and the refs will wave play on

You know what's worse than zonal marking? Really really bad zonal marking.

While a large number of fans were unhappy with Ozil –
Ozil is still in Brazil. He sent his evil twin to play for him

Great game played at a mad pace but very frustrating not to see it out and win. Hope @MatDebuchy is ok, wish you better mate.
