#9 – City tops Arsenal in early season clash

Man City had suffered a disappointing loss to Chelsea, 3-1, before falling apart in a 4-2 defeat away to Leicester. A much needed bounce back win against Watford setup a big top of the table showdown with Arsenal.

December 18th, City fell behind early, at home, but battled back to get a massive 2-1 victory over the Gunners. While the teams are now battling for 3rd place, it was a landmark moment in this campaign. It laid the marker that City was still solidly in the title race.
