Gallery: A New Year Comeback

Check out the best photos as Rodrigo struck an injury-time winner as Manchester City came from behind to win 2-1 against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium

In an enthralling encounter, we could’ve taken the lead in the opening stages through Ruben Dias, who rose highest to beat Aaron Ramsdale, only for his header to sail just wide of the far post.

But it would be the hosts who struck first with a nice passage of play finding Bukayo Saka to guide the ball past Ederson as they took control during the opening 45 minutes.

Following the break, a VAR check gave us a penalty after an initial challenge on Bernardo Silva was waved away by the referee and Riyad Mahrez made no mistake from the spot to draw us level.

A manic minute would prove to be decisive in the game, with Nathan Ake producing a world-class clearance off the line, before Gabriel was sent off for the hosts after a foul on Gabriel Jesus.

We kept pushing forward to look for a winner, and our persistence paid off with Rodrigo striking in the 93rd minute to seal the three points for Pep Guardiola’s side.
