Full-time: Arsenal 2-2 Manchester City

An enthralling game at The Emirates Stadium ends in a stalemate. City looked ominous and took the lead early through Sane, but Arsenal rallied and equalised through Walcott.

Aguero fired City in front moments later, but Mustafi's header ensured the Gunners were handed a share of the spoils.

A great game, but with the defending on show, nobody deserved to win.

That brings to the end our coverage, have a great evening.

17:48

Aguero's volley is deflected for a corner kick. De Bruyne's deliver is excellent but Arsenal head away. The ball is eventually worked to Navas, who blazes well wide.

17:47

A sumptuous flowing move from Arsenal ends up with Iwobi flashing a shot over the bar. The Nigerian started the move with a lovely pass to Bellerin, but could not apply the finish.

Zabaleta on for Silva, 89 minutes gone.

17:45

City come forward again through Silva and Fernandinho but Arsenal manage to clear.

Less than five minutes of normal time remaining.

17:43

Splendid dribbling from Iwobi and a great pass from Ozil finds Bellerin, whose cross is cut out in the nick of time.

At the other end, Silva makes space and fires a testing effort just wide of Ospina's post.

17:39

Coqeulin perhaps lucky to stay on the pitch after barging over De Bruyne. Less than 10 minutes left to play at the Emirates.

17:38

Otamendi gifts Ozil a golden chance but the German flutters out of a challenge from Caballero. Really, really poor from Ozil, who seemed scared by the onrushing Argentine.

Otamendi though, my word...

17:34

Danny Welbeck's race is run, he is off for Alex Iwobi.

17:34

Alex Iwobi is stripped and ready to come on for Arsenal.

The game is experiencing a lull at the moment. No intent from either team to go on and secure victory, despite all the attacking play we saw earlier.

17:32

Aguero looks to be in some discomfort. He's holding his upper thigh at the moment and may not be able to carry on.

17:31

Guardiola is berating John Stones for reasons unbeknownst to many.

Arsenal looking dangerous on the attack but Coquelin spurns any opportunity by dawdling on the ball. Poor from the Frenchman.

17:27

Fights breaking out at The Emirates. Pathetic scenes.

17:25

Sane's cross-cum-shot drifts wide when it only needed a touch.

Giroud is now being introduced and replaces Walcott, who has been quiet apart from the goal.

17:24

Wenger to roll the dice. Olivier Giroud is set to enter the fray.

17:24

Sane attempts to work his magic against Bellerin but the Spaniard stands strong.

A bizarre decision from Sanchez hands Silva an opportunity to cross. He finds Aguero, whose header is caught excellently by Ospina.

17:19

Mustafi booked for a cynical trip on Toure. Half an hour left to play at The Emirates.

17:16

City try to respond and force a corner out of Mustafi after good work from Aguero, who is battling hard.

De Bruyne's delivery is a teasing one but it evades Toure. The ball only finds Fernandinho who blasts an effort that Ospina saves well.

The Colombian is then floored after a coming together with Ospina. He is now receiving treatment.

17:12

A teasing corner from Ozil is met by Mustafi, who jumps ahead of Otamendi and guides the ball into the bottom corner, giving Caballero no chance.

Aguero missed a huge headed opportunity just minutes earlier, but Mustafi made no mistake. 2-2!

17:11

GOAL! Arsenal 2-2 Manchester City (Mustafi)

17:11

Aguero misses a huge opportunity. The Argentine gets his free header all wrong after Navas whipped a delicious ball into his area. City did not have to work too hard to create that chance, which will be a cause of concern for Arsenal.

17:08

Koscielny is believed to be struggling with an Achilles issue. Not for the first time in his career.

17:05

Fernandinho the latest to receive a booking for a cynical trip on Alexis Sancez. Took one for the team, can Arsenal make something of the set-piece?

17:04

Not a great start to the match for Gabriel, whose undercooked pass almost handed City a guilt-edged chance. Ospina hacked the loose ball away for a throw-in.

17:03

Another change, this time for City. Yaya Toure replaces Raheem Sterling. No news of an injury suffered by him or Koscielny.
