Relive a classic match between City and Arsenal from this day 14 years ago.

The Gunners ran Pep Guardiola’s side close in last season’s Premier League title race before we secured our third successive crown.

But the two clubs have had some fantastic matches down the years and a memorable encounter came at the Etihad in 2009.

City went into the game with a 100% record and bursting with attacking talent including former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

Arsene Wenger’s side, meanwhile, were one of the best teams in the country and the anticipation for the encounter was huge ahead of kick-off.

And the game delivered with a thrilling clash that is remembered as a classic Etihad match.

As with all full match-replays, we leave the scoreline a mystery so fans can watch the game as if live.
