Manchester City clashed heads with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium earlier this evening as they looked to grab all three points on their travels in the Premier League. The Mancunian club controlled the game well in the first half but were held to a goalless draw at the half-time break.
Pep Guardiola‘s men conceded an unfortunate late goal as Gabriel Martinelli found the back of the net with a deflected strike in the 86th minute. The contest ended with Man City suffering a lackluster 1-0 loss away from home.
