EPL: Man City beat Arsenal 6-3

London, Dec 14 : Manchester City thrashed Arsenal 6-3 in a Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday to throw the title race wide open as Arsenal's lead at the top of the table gets reduced to a mere 2 points.

City took the in the 14th minute of the match when Aguero volleyed in his shot after a Samir Nasri corner was flicked on by Martin Demichellis at the near post.

Theo Walcott restored parity but it was not long before Alvaro Negredo put City back ahead.

Fernandinho extended the home team's lead just after half time as he latched onto a misplaced pass which Mathieu Flamini could not collect and drove it to the edge of the box before curling the ball home.

Despite conceding the third Arsenal were quickly looking to try and respond, and Olivier Giroud was guilty of a hat-trick of misses in little over five minutes.

Just after the hour mark, Wenger got the response he was looking for from his team as Ramsey teed the ball up for Walcott and he curled home a wonderful shot into the top corner.

But yet more slack defending from Arsenal saw City restore their two-goal lead just moments after the away side had got themselves back into the game.

Jesus Navas fired a cross into the six-yard box where Silva had got ahead of Mertesacker and he clinically side-footed home from close-range.

There was still more time for City to score two goals and complete their humiliation of Arsenal as Ferdaninho and Toure Yaya and salt to injury for Arsenal in the dying moments of the match.
