Arsenal on Sunday evening came twice from behind to claim a two-all draw with Manchester City at the Emirates in an English Premier League (EPL) clash.
The Gunners, who lost their last two league matches at home, were stunned by Pep Guardiola’s men as Leroy Sane put the visitors ahead in five minutes.
Theo Walcott levelled the score with a scrambled finish in the 40th minute, just as Sergio Aguero hit home on an angle two minutes later to see City move ahead again.
Eight minutes after the restart, Shkodran Mustafi’s header got the Gunners back on level terms and ultimately earned a point for the hosts.
Earlier, Swansea City and Middlesbrough produced a stale goalless draw which did little to enhance either team’s prospects of avoiding relegation from the league.
Alexis Sanchez got a 14-minute hat-trick as Arsenal eased past West Ham United 5-1 at London Stadium.
The Gunners took the lead on 24 minutes, when Sanchez raced through to square to Mesut Ozil to score.
Sanchez doubled Arsenal’s lead on 72 minutes from an angle after a neat turn from Shkodran Mustafi’s pass, before firing in his second in the 80th minute from the edge of the area.
West Ham hit back when Andy Carroll nodded in after Dimitri Payet’s free-kick had hit the woodwork.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored from distance to make it 4-1 before Sanchez moved joint-top of the scoring charts with 11 goals, racing through, dummying and chipping in.
Arsenal rose to second, three points behind Chelsea, while West Ham are 17th with 11 points.
In the day’s early kick-off, Chelsea defeated Manchester City 3-1 at the Ethiad Stadium.
The Blues rallied from a goal down to overcome Manchester City and stretch their winning sequence to eight Premier League matches.
