Man City rallies for 2-1 win over Arsenal in Premier League

Arsenal led through Theo Walcott's fifth-minute strike - another goal that raised questions about City's defensive frailties - before Leroy Sane equalized in the 47th with his first goal for City.

Having thrown away a one goal lead in their 2-1 defeat at Goodison Park on Tuesday night, history repeated itself against Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain drops out of the Arsenal line-up for their trip to Manchester City on the same day as reports over a move in the same direction emerged in the national media, with Pep Guardiola reportedly interested in the England worldwide.

City nearly equalised immediately when Sterling headed just wide but they looked strangely hesitant going forward and could have fallen further behind as Arsenal played with confidence and menace. "And on top of all of that, we conceded two offside goals, which is hard to accept in a game of that stature", he said. But I don't want to make the referees the subject of a press conference.

Sane was denied in a one-on-one opportunity by Petr Cech, who tipped aside De Bruyne's deflected shot.

On the incident, Wenger added: "I was upset because I don't see, with 20 seconds to go, why you play a short free-kick when you could put it in the box".

The Frenchman said: "I felt we were in control and it didn't look like we could lose the game".

"We were caught cold in the second half and we dropped physically", Wenger said.

Inevitably, frustrated Arsenal fans were quick to point fingers after such a lacklustre display.

Wenger confirmed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who came on in the second half only to be taken off again 13 minutes later, had suffered a "muscular injury".

Guardiola decided not to play John Stones for the second straight game, preferring Nicolas Otamendi and Aleksandar Kolarov at center back, and City was often too open in defense while its build-up play was slow from the central midfield in the first half.

Rodriguez scored from close range in the 48th, then fired in a dipping shot from the edge of the area in the 85th to triple his goal tally for the league campaign. I'm happy to be City coach. "If they could make the right decision, it would be even better".

"The victories give a lot of confidence in the mind of the players in what we are trying to do", Guardiola said.
