Manuel Pellegrini’s side produced a devastating attacking display at the Etihad Stadium to reduce the Gunners’ lead at the top of the Premier League table to three points.
This was an end to end game that had everything.
Sergio Aguero's acrobatics opened the scoring, whilst Fernandinho netted his first goal for the Club in fine fashion, with a 20-yard curling effort.
Alvaro Negrado, David Silva and Yaya Toure were also on target, whilst the visitors played their part in a classic encounter.
Two-goal Theo Walcott was composure personified to score Arsene Wenger's side second, but, as we found so often in that Premier League winning campaign, City simply had too much firepower for the opposition to contain.
So, sit back and enjoy a nine-goal feast!
