Man City 3 – 1 Arsenal

Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick as Manchester City cut Liverpool’s lead at the top of the Premier League to two points with a vital win over Arsenal.

The Argentine forward headed City in front after just 46 seconds from Aymeric Laporte’s cross.

Laurent Koscielny marked his return from injury with a headed equaliser.

City secured the points when Aguero struck from close range for his second and third goals – both from assists by Raheem Sterling.
