Having just experiencing a tough and tiring European battle, another difficult task arrived for Manchester City as they set for top of the table clash against league leader, Arsenal at Etihad stadium. Successfully picking up an away victory over Bayern Munich on Tuesday should provide strong confidence among City players ahead of this Saturday, December 14 clash against current table topper.
Arsenal themselves picked up an opposite result as they were beaten by Italian side, Napoli in midweek, though Arsene Wenger's men still keep their Champions League campaign running. Although they are currently topping the league, but battling Man City at Etihad won't be an easy task for Gunners', especially since Manuel Pellegrini's men have been picking up positive results at home so far this season.
It was another show of force from Man City at home as they once again showcasing such strong attacking prowess as they bagged an entertaining 6-3 win over the current league leader. The home side started their goal rout after just 14 minutes through Sergio Aguero, but Arsenal managed to get back on level terms on 31 minutes through Theo Walcott. That equalizer only lasted for eight minutes though as City regained their lead with a close range finish from Alvaro Negredo.
After the break another thrilling show was in store as City extended their lead through Fernandinho's beautiful shot on 50 minutes. However, 13 minutes later Gunners pulled one goal back with another effort from Walcott, making things continue to look interesting. The home side stepped up one more gear though from that moment on as they added two more goals from David Silva and Fernandiho's second, before Per Mertesacker bagged Arsenal's third in stoppage time.
City were not fully finished yet though as they added one more killing blow, just before the final whistle was blown with Yaya Toure netting his team's sixth goal from the penalty spot. An important victory indeed for Manuel Pellegrini's men as they proved their title challenging mode with a bang.
