Arsenal produced a superb performance to win 2-0 at Manchester City on Sunday, with goals from Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud enough to claim victory.
The game enjoyed a quiet start and the first attempt on goal did not arrive until the 18th minute. It was the visitors who had that chance, as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain broke down the wing and found Olivier Giroud, whose diving header went wide of goal.
Arsenal won a penalty on 23 minutes. Full-back Nacho Monreal was brought down in the penalty area by Vincent Kompany and Santi Cazorla stepped-up confidently to put the spot-kick past Joe Hart in the City goal. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal faces their first test of the new season when they face champions Manchester City on Sunday at Wembley in the FA Community Shield.
The Gunners struggled against fellow top five teams last season and the Citizens themselves hammered the Gunners 6-3 at the Etihad Stadium. However, Arsenal now look to have a stronger all round team with the summer additions of Alexis Sanchez, Mathieu Debuchy, Calum Chambers and David Ospina.
This game could be an early season benchmark as they seek further silverware, after ending their nine year wait for a trophy with an FA Cup last season. The Gunners finished seven points behind City in the Premier League last season, after leading the table for much of the campaign. .......Read more here.....
