Arsenal holds Man City to 2-2 draw in Premier League

BY foxsports • May 8, 2016

MANCHESTER, England (AP) Arsenal plunged Manchester City's Champions League qualification chances into doubt by twice coming from behind to draw 2-2 in a gripping Premier League game on Sunday.

Alexis Sanchez earned Arsenal a point with a 68th-minute goal that leaves his third-place team on the cusp of guaranteeing yet another top-four finish under manager Arsene Wenger.

City went ahead through Sergio Aguero in the eighth minute and Kevin De Bruyne in the 51st, only for Olivier Giroud to score the first equalizer and then set up Sanchez for the second.

City is in fourth place - the final Champions League qualification berth - but will be overtaken by Manchester United, should its great rival beat West Ham on Tuesday. The final round of games is next weekend.
