Manchester City achieve a four-year first against Arsenal
Manchester City showed fine character as they came from behind to defeat Premier League title rivals Arsenal 2-1 on Sunday.
The Citizens fell behind to a first-half strike from Theo Walcott but Leroy Sane levelled the scoreline shortly after the restart.
And Raheem Sterling found the back of the net after 71 minutes to complete the turnaround for Pep Guardiola's men.

It was the first time since November 2012 that City secured a victory in the league when trailing at half-time.
Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko were both on the scoresheet as City downed Tottenham over four years ago to keep themselves in the race for the league title that term.
And Sane and Sterling's goals have ensured the City side of today remain in sight of leaders Chelsea, closing the gap on Antonio Conte's side to seven points.
Arsenal, on the flip side, have now dropped to fourth following their loss at the Etihad Stadium.
