Jack Wilshere netted his second home Premier League goal for Arsenal. His only other came back in October 2013 in a 4-1 win over Norwich City. he has scored five league goals for the Gunners in total.
Aaron Ramsey provided the key pass for Wilshere. The Welsh wizard has now made three assists and scored four goals in his last eight Premier League appearances.
Ramsey has made nine league assists since the start of last season – more than any other Arsenal player during that period.
After failing to score in his first four games for the Gunners, Alexis Sanchez has now scored three goals in his last three matches in all competitions.
Martin Demichelis’ late equaliser means that Arsenal have already conceded four headed goals this season – more than any other Premier League team.
Arsenal are now unbeaten in 20 league games at home.
City have only won one of their last 18 league visits to Arsenal – a 2-0 victory in January 2013. The Gunners have won 11 of those 18 games.
