Two minutes of utter mayhem brought below-par Manchester City a crucial win at Arsenal.

An open-goal miss from Gabriel Martinelli, a red card for Gabriel Magalhaes, and then a penalty tucked away by Riyad Mahrez brought a swing in fortunes on a day when the Bluest had been second-best.

And just when it seemed ten-man Arsenal would earn a point, Rodri snatched a late winner to clear the last cobwebs of a hangover from the delirious traveling fans.

From being on the brink of going two goals down, City was suddenly level and facing ten men – but could not drive home their advantage, until the game moved into added time.

Still, the hard-fought win means that the Blues have opened up 11 points on Chelsea and 12 on Liverpool, and they can put their feet up and enjoy their two title rivals scrapping over the right to challenge them on Sunday afternoon.
