Match Highlights View More Below

City's title race finally ended in disarray, with Mario Balotelli sent off minutes after a late winner from Mikel Arteta left the Blues trailing by eight points with just six games to play.

Arsene Wenger's Gunners, still smarting from the loss of a clutch of stars to the Blues, applied a deadly blow to Roberto Mancini's fading dream at a celebrating Emirates Stadium.

Arteta, so often a thorn in City's side when he wore the blue of Everton, conjured one of his long-range specials and in doing so effectively ensured that United will keep the trophy.

While Mancini will not throw in the towel until mathematics dictates that he must, the much-anticipated Etihad derby on 30 April will now be a long way from the vaunted title decider.
