Gabriel fails in his attempt to find Aubameyang and it rolls for Ederson instead.
It appears as if Willian is playing in the number nine position for Arsenal.

Pepe is into a great position and tries a powerful header, but it is well wide!

Arsenal are doing an awful lot of defending at the moment.
Cancelo is in trouble after he is beaten by Aubameyang. Walker does well to come in and save the day for City.
