Manchester City

A woeful week for Arsenal comes to end. After drawing Bayern Munich in the Champions League knockout stages on Monday and defeat to Everton on Tuesday, they have lost again today in Manchester. City leapfrog them in the Premier League table, moving into second, with Tottenham now just a point behind their north London rivals.

Full-time: Tottenham 2-1 Burnley

Full-time: Manchester City 2-1 Arsenal

City are in control as this game comes to an end and now Silva has just won a free kick for his side to run the clock down further. This has been truly abysmal from Arsenal in this second half.

There are four minutes of time added on at the Etihad. Arsenal still have time to salvage something.

Amid all that, Oxlade-Chamberlain, brought on in the second half, was replaced by Mohamed Elneny. Surely he must have picked up a knock?

Moussa Sissoko was perhaps lucky to avoid a red card after a dangerous challenge moments ago but he has now provided Tottenham's second. On the counter, he finds Rose who breaks into the box, takes a touch and blasts past Tom Heaton.

Goal! Tottenham 2-1 Burnley (Danny Rose, 76)

City denied by the post! This is abysmal from Arsenal; Navas is given acres of space to saunter down the right, drilling a cross into de Bruyne but his effort comes back off the woodwork.

Here's another change for City, Jesus Navas comes onto replace Sane.

Another change for Arsenal, Olivier Giroud comes onto replace Coquelin.

City take the lead! It's becoming and Arsenal pay the price for a dismal second half performance. De Bruyne is central to it, switching play wonderfully to find Sterling. He cuts inside, with Monreal backpeddling in a panic and instead of looking for the cross, blasts into the bottom corner with Cech beaten before he can even dive.

De Bruyne picks up the ball on the edge of the D and takes aim, with his effort taking a deflection off Koscielny. Cech is equal to it, however, springing down to palm it around the post.

Arsene Wenger is going to change things up, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain comes on for Iwobi.

Arsenal are wilting quickly here. City again pressure them into another mistake with Sane tearing down the right flank, winning a corner for his side.

Cech keeps Arsenal in it! City press the Gunners into a mistake with Fernando winning the ball in midfield. He nudges it onto De Bruyne who slides a superb ball through for Sane but the Arsenal goalkeeper makes an important save to block his effort on goal.

Arsenal keep trying to pass their way out of trouble at the back but City are far sharper in this half. The Gunners are not quite on the ropes, but the home side are building towards something here.

Yaya Toure throws a strop after seeing a decision going against him and his shown a yellow card.

City are level! Petr Cech's goal kick is nodded down by Fernando in midfield and after a couple of neat passes, Silva clips a fine ball through for Sane who keeps his cool and slots home. Woeful defending from Arsenal; they were asleep there.

Goal! Manchester City 1-1 Arsenal (Leroy Sane,46)

City get us back underway for the second half and Pep Guardiola makes the first change of the game, bringing Bacary Sagna in for Zabaleta.

Half-time: Tottenham 1-1 Burnley

Half-time: Manchester City 0-1 Arsenal

Iwobi pings one into the far corner of the net but Monreal, who provided the ball for him, had drifted just offside.

Sane suddenly comes alive, dancing past challenges as he comes in from the right before pinging a ball across goal but Koscielny does brilliantly to divert it away from danger.

City really are here for the taking. Walcott drives forward in from the right unchallenged, skipping past a couple of meek attempts to block him before laying the ball off to Sanchez. He is forced wide but moves the ball back across goal to find Bellerin rushing into the box, but he hammers well over the bar.

Silva takes one for the team, sticking out a leg to trip Coquelin as Arsenal lurch forward on the counter attack. The Spaniard picks up a yellow card.

Arsenal are defending well here, City are struggling to pick their way through despite dominating possession.

Tottenham are level! Switching play to the right, Kyle Walker drives forward and pings a cross into Dele Alli who times his run well and steers home from close range. Easy.

Goal! Tottenham 1-1 Burnley (Dele Alli, 26)

Burnley take the lead at White Hart Lane! It's poor from Tottenham from a defensive point of view with George Boyd sliding a ball across to Ashley Barnes who is given far too much space to bundle the ball home from six yards out.

Goal! Tottenham 0-1 Burnley (Ashley Barnes, 21)

City's defence looks so vulnerable every time Arsenal lurch forward on the counter. Clichy doesn't seem to be interested in tracking his man down the left while Zabaleta is getting no favours from Sane ahead of him when the Gunners come down his side.

City are looking frail as always at the back but they are looking increasingly threatening going forward. Play is spread wide to de Bruyne who neatly side steps a challenge from Bellerin before curling a cross in, but Cech can collect.

The free kick is dinked into Toure at the far post by the Ivorian is offside as he heads wide.

Koscielny dives in to try and beat Sterling to the ball but he is always going to be second to it; taking out the City forward and conceding a free kick from 25 yards out.

City almost bite back straight away! Kevin de Bruyne swings in an absolutely superb cross from the left that Sterling leaps onto with a diving header, but he can't direct it on target.

Arsenal take the lead! It's brilliant from Alexis Sanchez, who twists Nicolas Otamendi inside out, pulling the Argentine out of position before releasing Theo Walcott free in the box one-on-one with Bravo, slotting coolly into the far corner.

Goal! Manchester CIty 0-1 Arsenal (Theo Walcott, 4)

Toure springs Sane free down the right flank, sprinting past Monreal but the Spaniard does well to make up ground as the City winger cuts inside and intercept.

And Arsenal get us started at the Etihad.

Both teams are lining up in the tunnel; Man City players are all wearing a shirt with Gundogan's name emblazoned across the front after the German's knee ligament injury earlier this week.

A win for either Man City or Arsenal will see them leapfrog Liverpool into second place today. Jurgen Klopp's side are in action on Monday night in the Merseyside derby against Everton.

Tottenham meanwhile host Burnley at White Hart Lane this afternoon but are once again without Toby Alderweireld. The Belgium international returned from a knee injury last week but a back problem has ruled him out today.

Tottenham team to face Burnley: Lloris (C), Walker, Dier, Vertonghen, Rose, Wanyama, Winks, Dembele, Eriksen, Dele, Kane

Subs: Vorm, Davies, Trippier, Wimmer, Sissoko, Nkoudou, Son

In today's early kick-off, Southampton have secured all three points against Bournemouth with Jay Rodriguez scoring twice at Dean Court in a 3-1 win.

Arsene Wenger meanwhile makes just one change to the side that lost to Everton with Alex Iwobi stepping in ahead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Granit Xhaka and Francis Coquelin continue in midfield.

Pep Guardiola makes two changes to the side that beat Watford midweek with Leroy Sane and Fernando coming in for Nolito and Ilkay Gundogan. Kevin de Bruyne takes up the false nine role.

Arsenal team to face Manchester City: Cech, Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Xhaka, Walcott, Ozil, Iwobi, Alexis

Subs: Ospina, Gibbs, Holding, Elneny, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lucas, Giroud

Subs: Caballero, Sagna, Stones, Nolito, Navas, Iheanacho, A Garcia

BREAKING: Yaya Toure comes in for the injured Ilkay Gundogan while Kevin de Bruyne starts in an advanced role with Kelechi Iheanacho on the bench.

BREAKING: Alex Iwobi comes into the Arsenal starting XI. The Gunners are otherwise unchanged from the side that lost to Everton midweek.

Danny Welbeck is a week away from a possible return but Arsene Wenger will have the same squad that lost to Everton on Tuesday to choose from this afternoon.

Ahead of Manchester City we should have the same squad who went to Everton, Nobody (is) back, Ramsey is not back in time but he is closest to coming back. We have some knocks and bruises but they [the squad from Everton] should all be available again.

City are still reeling from the loss of Ilkay Gundogan with the Germany international ruled out for "several months" with a knee ligament injury suffered in the mid-week win over Watford. Yaya Toure could be the man to step into replace him. Pep Guardiola told reporters this week:

You know the reason why he [Toure] was out in the first part of the season, Now he is playing like he can be, like I met him at Barcelona. There's no doubt about his quality. We have him, Fernando, we have Aleix [Garcia], Kevin [De Bruyne] can play in that position too. Fernandinho is coming back."

Team news: Arsenal

The Gunners have had no fresh injury concerns this week but don't have anyone returning to the squad either. Shkodran Mustafi and Aaron Ramsey remain out along with Per Mertesacker and Santi Cazorla.

Team news: Manchester City

Fernandinho and Sergio Aguero remain unavailable thanks to their suspensions with the Brazilian midfielder able to return against Hull City on Boxing Day. Vincent Kompany remains absent due to knee ligament damage, while Fabian Delph is yet to fully recover from surgery on a groin injury sustained back in August.
