Martinelli's Late Winner Edges Arsenal Past Man City

Martinelli's Late Winner Edges Arsenal Past Man City

Gabriel Martinelli scored a dramatic late winner as Arsenal edged past defending champions Manchester City at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The Brazilian, making his return from a hamstring injury as a second half substitute, saw his strike deflected in off Nathan Ake to earn Arsenal a first Premier League win over City since December 2015.

That goal sent the home crowd into delirium and put the Gunners level on points with neighbours Tottenham at the top of the table.

Prior to the goal, the major talking point was Mateo Kovacic avoiding a red card in the first-half.

The Croatian somehow stayed on the pitch after a tackle which saw his studs collide with Martin Odegaard's ankle and then received no further punishment for a similar foul on Declan Rice six minutes later.

But in the end, Martinelli got Arsenal the justice they deserved four minutes from time, just as both sides looked certain to have to share the spoils.
