The Pole looked a little ropey under high balls but handling of shots was generally solid.
Overwhelmed by City's attacking threat down his side as the visitors often outnumbered the Arsenal left-back and played with speed and accuracy. Much improved after the break.
Decent positioning from the centre-back although he struggled sometimes with City's clever runs in behind in the first-half.
Generally strong in the air up against Dzeko and made some important interceptions.
Caught out of position for Silva's goal and struggled defensively early on. Improved as the game went on and good outlet in possession.
Arsenal's most dangerous player as he picked the ball up on the half-turn, ran at City and picked out dangerous passes.
Some neat and tidy passing from the Spaniard but delayed too many passes and didn't offer enough defensive protection especially when Silva drifted between the lines.
Worked tirelessly in midfield and always comfortable receiving possession under pressure.
Tenacious display in central midfield as he looked to put City players under pressure and popped up with a rare goal when he scuffed into the corner from 12 yards in the 53rd minute.
A poor display from the Frenchman. Could not really keep hold of the ball as the lone striker and no opportunities to score.
Gave the ball away in the build-up to City's opener but produced a great cross for Flamini's equaliser. Should have scored himself but low shot was too close to Hart.
Could do nothing about Flamini's goal but his handling was good and he produced a fine stop to deny Podolski in the second-half.
Impressive performance from the Argentine as he bullied Giroud and attacked the ball to steal possession. Might have been more alert to Flamini's run for the equaliser.
A very busy performance from the right-back as he constantly supported Navas in attack. Might have done more to block the cross for Flamini's goal.
Booked for clumsy challenge on Arteta but on the whole a dominant defensive display that included some crunching tackles.
Solid defensive display from the left-back and good use of the ball.
A wonderful performance from the playmaker, particularly in the first-half as he popped up all over the pitch knitting together City's attacks with his fine technique and vision. Deserved his goal which was stabbed over the line from close range in the 18th minute.
One of the Ivorian's more quiet games. Started the attack for Silva's goal but was rather one-paced despite his accurate use of the ball.
Broke up Arsenal attacks at the base of City's midfield and played good forward passes. Had shooting opportunities but missed the target.
Whipped a shot just wide early on and troubled Arsenal with his directness and pace before being replaced by Milner in the second-half.
Constantly booed back at his old club, the Frenchman had a quiet game despite some clever passing and movement.
Decent with his back to goal but the Bosnian did not offer the same goal threat he showed in the Manchester derby earlier in the week.
