Arteta: "Pep and I want to win and defend our clubs the best possible way"

Nathan Ake proved the unlikely match-winner as Manchester City edged out title rivals Arsenal 1-0 in a tense FA Cup fourth-round tie on Friday.

The Netherlands defender steered home a low shot in the 64th minute at the Etihad Stadium as City landed the first blow in their trilogy of clashes with the Gunners over the coming months.

Arsenal, the Premier League leaders, had enjoyed the better of the first half, with Takehiro Tomiyasu and Leandro Trossard both forcing good saves from Stefan Ortega.

Yet, while much had been made of the growing touchline rivalry between City manager Pep Guardiola and his former assistant Mikel Arteta, for a seventh time in eight meetings it was ultimately the old master who prevailed.

Relive all the action from the Etihad Stadium as Man City beat Arsenal in the FA Cup:


Man City 0-0 Arsenal

45+2 mins: John Stones isn’t going to continue. Aymeric Laporte is getting ready to come on to replace him but the match restarts before he can get on the pitch.

City are down to 10 for the minute.

Man City 0-0 Arsenal

45 mins: John Stones is down. He seems to have a problem with his right hamstring and may have pulled it. Ruben Dias has been sent out to warm up for City.

There’s going to be two minutes of added time to play plus however long it takes to deal with Stones’ injury.

Man City 0-0 Arsenal

42 mins: This has been coming. The ball comes up to Haaland who controls it before laying a pass off to the left before making a run in behind.

Holding doesn’t let him go though and drags Haaland to the floor. The referee pulls out the yellow card and the Arsenal centre-back goes in the book.

Man City 0-0 Arsenal

39 mins: Chance! Erling Haaland is a machine. There’s a tussle in midfield between Gundogan and Tierney with the Arsenal defender dinking the ball back towards his own goal.

Haaland puts on the burners and beats a back-tracking Gabriel to the ball. The centre-back puts pressure on Haaland but the striker pokes the ball at goal and just pushes it wide.

Wonderful pace and strength on display from Haaland there.

Man City 0-0 Arsenal

36 mins: Man City are aggrieved again. Kevin De Bruyne dribbles the ball towards the edge of the Arsenal box and gets a shove from Thomas Partey. He theatrically throws himself to ground but the referee lets play go on and the ball comes up to Bukayo Saka.

Saka is then pushed by Jack Grealish in an almost identical fashion and the referee blows for an Arsenal free kick. ‘No way’ mouths De Bruyne as Grealish just shakes his head.

Man City 0-0 Arsenal

33 mins: Close! Trossard collects the ball out wide on the left and drives down the line before sweeping past Rico Lewis. Trossard whips in a cross and picks out the run from Eddie Nketiah who meets the ball on the volley and pokes it wide of the nearest post!

Man City 0-0 Arsenal

30 mins: Haaland looks slightly dazed as he walks off to the side of the pitch but he’ll be able to play on.

Rodri nicks the ball off Fabio Vieira after Arsenal resume the match but City don’t make use of the mini break and lose possession on the left wing.

Haaland jogs back on as well.

Man City 0-0 Arsenal

27 mins: Rob Holding and Erling Haaland are at it again. Both players go up for an aerial ball and Haaland takes a knock to the back of the head.

VAR looks at the incident but nothing come Holding’s way in terms of punishment. Haaland needs a bit of treatment from the City medical staff.

Man City 0-0 Arsenal

24 mins: Things are heating up now! Kevin De Bruyne drifts into space on the inside right channel and receives the ball from Rico Lewis.

The Man City playmaker cuts inside of Leandro Trossard before curling a left-footed effort just wide of the far post! Matt Turner wasn’t confident with that one.

The Arsenal goalkeeper leapt across to keep it out but wasn’t getting there. De Bruyne’s effort was only a few inches away from opening the scoring.

Man City 0-0 Arsenal

21 mins: SAVE! That’s the chance. Arsenal break down the right wing and send the ball inside to Fabio Vieira.

He passes the ball on to Leandro Trossard who drives past Rice Lewis, gets into the box and blazes a shot at goal. Stefan Ortega leaps to his left and gets a strong hand to ball managing to palm it into the six yard area where it gets scooped away.

Best chance of the match. Great save.
