Better team won - simples. Still, it was the best Premier League game of the season.

Maybe for you, Tudor. I have seen at least 2 better games.

Harts heroics prevented you getting a deserved point. Unlucky fellas but good effort.

Unlucky. Not sure Gervinho is up to much same with a few others. Still if you keep RVP fit and at the club & get Wilshere back then its gonna go right to the wire regarding the Top 4.

Wilshere would have made a difference in this game with his tenacity and driving runs. There is still a lot of football to be played......

I'd wager we'd never have gotten away with the handball incident by micah richards if the roles had been reversed.

Proud of the boys today, especially the defenders and midfielders. That's a damn talented bunch of players. We'll nip 4th place with more displays like that.

Good game Gunners, could have gone either way. Wyn, in regards the handball, I've seen them given but I don't believe it was intentional, Micah is expecting Kolo or RVP to get to the ball, if it was at the other it probably would have been given, but I'd wager if it was at the Emirates the decision would have gone in Arsenal's favour.

Bluedub - It doesn't have to be intentional for it to be handball, it just has to gain an advantage to the offending player, and considering he cleared the ball after that I'd say he got an advantage. That said I'm not going to complain about it, things like that happen all the time, you can't rely on the refs to help you win games. I'd wouldn't deny City were good value for their win, but at the same time, no-one could argue if we got a point from the game. That was a proper football, match, the way it should be played. Trading blows for the entire 90 minutes, I was sure all the players were going to flake out before the end. But we kept going and kept pushing, really impressive mental display. Joe Hart's face after The Verminator's shot whislted past the post in the 90th minute told you everything you needed to know about how relieved City were to get out of this home game with all three points. Kudos to both teams for a tremendous game!
