Arsenal clashed heads with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to earn a victory away from home in the FA Cup. The Gunners made a good start to the game and were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time interval.

Mikel Arteta’s men conceded the opening goal in the 64th minute when Nathan Ake found the back of the net for the Mancunian club. Arsenal failed to mount a comeback and crashed to a tough 1-0 loss on the road.

Let’s take a look at how each Arsenal player fared during the match against Manchester City.
