Arsenal came away with a point despite twice going behind, first to Leroy Sane's opener and then to Sergio Aguero's 42nd minute strike - with Walcott and Shkodran Mustafi equalising for the Gunners.

Arsenal equalised through Theo Walcott, before Shkodran Mustafi's second-half header cancelled out Sergio Aguero's strike, but the point leaves the Londoners in sixth on 51 points, seven behind City who now occupy the final Champions League qualifying berth.

Arsenal have now gone three Premier League games in a row without victory, and Wenger says the pressure to perform was felt by his players. "I feared that we could start with the handbrake on because of the pressure we are under", said Wenger.

"You could see that the team were touched on the confidence front and that the fluency in our game suffered", said Wenger. "We have shown great mental resource".

So, it turns out City couldn't even beat Arsenal at their very lowest ebb.

City took their feet off the gas when they were ahead twice, and Guardiola said they play their best when their backs are against the wall.

Wenger reported that he did not know how long Koscielny would be out but Aaron Ramsey (calf) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring) could return for the home game against West Ham United on Wednesday.

Chelsea gave title rivals a glimmer of hope by losing to Crystal Palace on Saturday, but City is 11 points behind the leaders with nine games left. I think Pep Guardiola has said to be in the top four is a trophy because in England it is so hard.
