With title rivals Manchester City beating Newcastle United 2-0 earlier in the day, Arsenal were under pressure to secure three points against relegation-battling AFC Bournemouth.

But they suffered a nightmare start, falling behind after only 9.1 seconds to a Philip Billing goal, the second quickest in the competition's history, before Marcos Senesi doubled their tally midway through the second half.

Arsenal pulled one back through Thomas Partey, before an inspired substitution changed the match.

Reiss Nelson produced an assist for Ben White's equaliser a minute after being sent on, before scoring a dramatic winner in the seventh minute of stoppage time.

The goal sent fans and players inside Emirates Stadium wild and moved Arsenal five points clear of Man City

This result would also earn Nelson the 2022/23 Castrol Game Changer of the Season award.

Facing a Manchester United team who travelled to the Etihad Stadium on the back of a four-match winning run, Man City ran riot in this derby, setting a number of records along the way.

Pep Guardiola’s side's 4-0 lead at half-time was their biggest-ever in a derby, and the nine goals by the time of the final whistle meant it was highest-scoring Manchester derby in Premier League history.

It was also the third home fixture in a row where Erling Haaland scored a hat-trick, making him the first player in the competition to achieve that feat.

Midfielder Phil Foden also struck a treble, the first time he had scored three in a single match, as City ended Man Utd's four-match winning run.
