    Full-time. Arsenal 0-1 Manchester City. A dominant performance from the champions-elect, but the Gunners will be disappointed having switched off early on for the only goal and then failed to create any real chances. Onto Benfica in midweek. We'll see you again soon.

  2. 18:11 #982

    81'- CHANCE! City come close to a second through Jesus who turns just wide inside the area. Holding went down with a head injury in the build-up after a clash with Cancelo, and he is replaced by Luiz. 0-1

  3. 18:04 #981

    73'- Double change for Arsenal as Lacazette and Smith Rowe replace Odegaard and Pepe. 0-1

  4. 17:46 #980

    56'- CHANCE! Sterling's blocked shot falls for Gundogan who takes aim from the edge of the area, but Leno gets down to his left to make a smart save. 0-1

  5. 17:38 #979

    48'- CHANCE! De Bruyne so close to making it 2-0 to City with an outrageous chip from the edge of the box, but it sails just past Leno's far post.

  6. 17:36 #978

    47'- First chance of the half goes to City as Zinchenko blazes well over inside the area. 0-1

  7. 17:33 #977

    46'- Back underway at the Emirates. 0-1

  8. 17:21 #976

    Half-time. Arsenal 0-1 Manchester City. Sterling's early goal has the away side on their way to an 18th game unbeaten after a dominant performance, but the Gunners grew into the game and finished the half strongly.

  9. 17:17 #975

    44'- CHANCE! Best opening for Arsenal so far. Bellerin heads on a crossfield pass to Pepe who looks to give it back to the defender inside the area. Gundogan gets back to intercept but it breaks for Pepe who hits the side netting. 0-1

  10. 17:12 #974

    39'- Arsenal making a few more forrays forward as we close in on half-time. Tierney is found in space on the left and he looks to pick out Aubameyang in the middle, but Stones makes an important clearance at the near post. 0-1

  11. 17:06 #973

    34'- Xhaka loses out and City break in numbers. The ball is slipped through to Gundogan but his touch is poor inside the area and Holding makes an important tackle. 0-1

  12. 17:03 #972

    30'- CHANCE! Ball breaks for Tierney in the box and Arsenal have a rare shot, but Ederson makes a comfortable save. Still pretty much all City though. 0-1

  13. 16:46 #971

    13'- Man City seeing all of the ball here. It honestly looks like training ground stuff at the Emirates. 0-1

  14. 16:40 #970

    8'- Tierney makes an important block inside the penalty area as Mahrez looks to weave his way through. 0-1

  15. 16:38 #969

    6'- CHANCE! De Bruyne splits the Arsenal defence with a pass through to Sterling, but he can't sort his feet out under pressure and Leno smothers. 0-1

  16. 16:35 #968

    2'- GOAL Man City. Just the start Arsenal didn't want and the league leaders are ahead. Mahrez makes room to get in a cross and he picks out an unmarked Sterling who nods the ball past Leno from six yards. Holding and Bellerin have to do better there. 0-1

  17. 16:33 #967

    1'- Underway at the Emirates. 0-0

  18. 16:30 #966

    Teams are out at the Emirates. Arsenal vs Man City is moments away.

  19. 15:51 #965

    A win today would see Arsenal jump to 8th in the Premier League table, but they'll have to be at their best if they are to have any chance of beating City, who are unbeaten in their last 17 games.

  20. 15:36 #964
