  1. The story of the game is that City secured a vital away win that once more reduces Manchester United's lead at the top to seven points. But not for the first time this season, the referee will be the main talking point after dishing out two red cards that were harsh to say the least.

  2. 90+3

    Aleksandar Kolarov comes on for Silva.

  3. 90

    There will be a minimum of five minutes added time.

  4. 89

    Great pass from Ramsey plays in Walcott whose shot beats Hart but Lescott clears ooff the line.

  5. 88

    Balotelli's first contribution is a handball which gives Arsenal the chance to get the ball forward.

  6. 87

    Balotelli replaces Dzeko for City.

  7. 86

    Walcott takes an Arsenal corner which is bravely punched clear by Hart and play is halted with Nastasic down in the box.

  8. 85

    Barry is booked for a foul on Wilshere.

  9. 84

    Dzeko theatrically goes down under the challenge of Vermaelen, but play is waved on.

  10. 83

    Huge appeals from the home fans as Walcott's cross hits Clichy but play is waved on and replays show it struck his leg.

  11. 82

    Silva concedes a free kick 40 yards out but Wilshere's set piece is scrambled clear by City.

  12. 81

    Wilshere's clever ball plays in Sagna on the overlap but his low cross is cut out by Matija Nastasic.

  13. 80

    It will be interesting to see if one or indeed both the sides launch appeals against the two red cards.

  14. 79

    Milner cuts into the box but his left-foot shot drifts harmlessly wide.

  15. 78

    City once again are happy to play the ball around and make Arsenal work hard to try and win it back.

  16. 77

    You can see the red card has given Arsenal a lift and the noise level has also increased but the hosts need a goal quickly if they are going to force their way into the game.

  17. 76

    City make a change with Lescott on for Tevez.

  18. 75

    Garcia is booked for dissent.

  19. 74

    Referee Dean deemed it as a two-footed tackle - but again it looked very harsh to me as he clearly played the ball.

  20. 73

    Kompany is sent off after a crunching challenge with Wilshere.
