Gareth Barry takes a quick free kick and three passes later James Milner whips a fierce drive across goal to put Manchester City 1-0 at Arsenal in January 2013.

With the Gunners' defence caught napping, David Silva combined with Carlos Tevez, who picked the goal scorer out with a cute through ball.

Allowing the pass to run across his body, Milner dispatched an angled strike past Wojiach Szczesny to give Roberto Mancini's men the lead against the home side.

Arsenal were down to 10 men at this point, after Laurent Koscielny was dismissed for a foul on Edin Dzeko, who saw the resulting penalty saved.

The Bosnian ensured he was on the score sheet when he doubled the Blues' lead from close range on the half hour mark, which is where the scoring ended, though Vincent Kompany did see red for a foul on Jack Wilshere in the second half.
