City returned to winning ways as David Silva scored the only goal of the game during a thrilling top-of-the-table clash with Arsenal.

Silva’s goal ensured a 1-0 win over the Gunners and saw the Blues return to the summit having being knocked off briefly by neighbours United a few hours earlier.

The victory also means City have now completed a calendar year unbeaten at home as the title race continues to twist and turn.

Roberto Mancini made three changes to the side that started the match at Chelsea with Kolo Toure replacing Joleon Lescott, Pablo Zabaleta coming in for the suspended Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri recalled in place of James Milner.
