Manchester City and Arsenal played out a goalless draw in their English Premier League (EPL) encounter at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Both sides could not find the breakthrough in the tough encounter as the EPL title hopefuls continue their tussle at the top of the league.

Manchester City called upon Kevin de Bruyne, Rodri and Erling Haaland but the duo of Kyle Walker and John Stones were absent due to injury. Gabriel Jesus also led Arsenal’s attack against his old side, with Bukayo Saka also in from the start.

The hosts dominated possession from the start but Arsenal had the better opportunities to take the lead, with Jesus testing the goalkeeper before hitting another shot wide.

The attacking turnovers soon made way for a feisty encounter filled with fouls, and there was no breakthrough at the interval.

Man City went close early in the second period, with Matteo Kovacic firing just wide from distance. The EPL champions upped the tempo late on but Haaland missed a sitter while Leandro Trossard drew an easy save from Ortega on the counter.

The Gunners remained resolute and saw out the encounter to take a precious point at the Etihad.
