Classic Highlights: City 6-3 Arsenal 2013

A dominant Etihad display on this day eight years ago...

City started the day six points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal, but Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Negredo, David Silva, Yaya Toure and a Fernandinho brace saw us brush the Gunners aside in convincing fashion.

Aguero handed Manuel Pellegrini's men an early lead after ghosting in at the far post from a Samir Nasri corner, but the visitors responded after the half hour through Theo Walcott.

However, Negredo restored our lead just eight minutes later with a close-range finish from Pablo Zabaleta's ball across the face of goal, before Fernandinho grabbed his first City strike just five minutes after the restart.

Walcott reduced the arrears with an impressive curling effort after the hour, but Silva restored our two-goal advantage soon after.

Fernandinho added number five with a sumptuous chip over the onrushing Wojciech Szczesny before Per Mertesacker offered the Gunners faint hope of an unlikely comeback deep into stoppage time.

But it was a rampant City side who would have the final say on an enthralling afternoon at the Etihad, when Toure added a sixth from the spot after James Milner was brought down by Szczesny inside the area.
