Man City sat in second place in the table ahead of the top-of-the-table clash against Arsenal.

But Pep Guardiola's side have moved to the top of the league after beating Mikel Arteta's team in a thrilling clash.

Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring in the 24th minute after he brilliantly found the back of the net following an error by Takehiro Tomiyasu.

The Gunners, though, equalised just before the break when Bukayo Saka scored a penalty after Anthony Taylor pointed to the spot after Ederson fouled Eddie Nketiah, in a decision which sent social media wild.

The visitors restored their lead in the second-half after Bernardo Silva pounced on a loose pass before playing a through ball to Erling Haaland.

From there, the Man City forward picked out Ilkay Gundogan, who set up Jack Grealish for their second goal.
