Arsenal twice fought back to hold Manchester City to a 2-2 draw in the Premier League on Sunday after the attacking resilience of Arsene Wenger's side was undermined by defensive deficiencies.

Although goals from Theo Walcott and Shkodran Mustafi prevented Arsenal from sinking to a fifth loss in six league games, the failure to collect three points further damaged their bid to qualify for the Champions League.


Arsenal starting starting XI: Ospina, Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Coquelin, Walcott, Ozil, Welbeck, Sanchez.

Substitutes: Gibbs, Gabriel, Giroud, Iwobi, Martinez, Elneny, Maitland-Niles.

Manchester City starting XI: Caballero, Fernandinho, Stones, Otamendi, Clichy, Jesus Navas, De Bruyne, Silva, Sane, Sterling, Aguero.

Substitutes: Bravo, Kompany, Zabaleta, Nolito, Kolarov, Delph, Toure.

Referee: Andre Marriner (West Midlands)
