Manchester City Vs. Arsenal: 2nd Half Underway

So, 1-0 to Manchester City as we start the second half. Arsenal, remember, are holding onto an undefeated record, and nothing about the first half, when they were at worst evenly matched, will tell Arsene Wenger and company that preserving that record is impossible. City got a chance and took it, but it's the Gunners who've dominated possession in the middle (Jack Rodwell's been introduced in an attempt to rectify that problem) and they've threatened Joe Hart's goal on several occasions.

However, they're not going to get back into this game by playing like that -- Yaya Toure wins the ball high up the pitch following some sloppy play from the Arsenal midfield, and only a poor shot at the end of his driving prevents the City talisman punishing the visitors for their error. The Gunners really can't afford to go 2-0 down here, but if they commit too many men forward they might get caught on the break.
