Gunners upstage City in Manchester

11:40 am on 25 October 2010

Arsenal have showed their Premier League football title credentials with a 3-0 victory over 10-man Manchester City at Eastlands.

City were left chasing shadows from the fifth minute at Eastlands after defender Dedryck Boyata saw red for a last-man foul on Marouane Chamakh and Arsenal won with goals from Samir Nasri, Alex Song and Nicklas Bendtner.

Arsenal and City are both now on 17 points, second Chelsea and alongside Manchester United after their first away league win of the season, 2-1 at Stoke City.

In Monday morning's other match Liverpool claimed just their second win of the season when they beat Blackburn Rovers 2-1 at Anfield, with Fernando Torres among the scorers.
