It was a virtual thriller that was played out at Etihad Stadium on Sunday night.

Premier League leaders Manchester City were outclassed by bitter rivals and neighbours Manchester United to top the points table for a while. But City were able to regain the top slot after a few hours through a class act beating Arsenal 1-0.

The lone goal came on 53 minutes when David Silva scored from a close-range rebound. The Gunners were able to create a number of chances, but the much-needed firepower was missing. City remain unbeaten at the Etihad Stadium in 2011.

City lead the League at the moment with 41 points.
