Arsene Wenger side Arsenal showed signs of recovery from their recent dismal run of form as they twice bounce back from behind to draw with Manchester City at Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal had lost four out of their previous five English Premier League games, and faced Pep Gaurdiola side against uncertainty surrounding coach Arsene Wenger's future, with more protests staged before starting of the match.
The Gunners got off to the worst possible start when winger Leroy Sane put the visitors ahead after only five minutes, running on to midfielder Kevin de Bruyne's routine pass to round keeper David Ospina and score.
England forward Theo Walcott capped a spell of Arsenal pressure to scramble home an equaliser five minutes before the half-time - but they were on terms for only two minutes before striker Sergio Aguero's powerful finish put Manchester City back in front.
Arsenal lost defender Laurent Koscielny to injury at break-time and it was his central defensive partner Spanish player Shkodran Mustafi who rose above City's defence from a corner to restore parity after 53 minutes.
The former Atletico Madrid striker [Aguero] missed two good chances for City and coach Pep Guardiola was furious that a late handball appeal against Gunners left-back Nacho Monreal was ignored, leaving his side in fourth position and Arsenal in sixth place in the points table - seven points of the top-four pace.
