Massey-Ellis awarded the throw to Arsenal and Aguero was not best pleased.

Massey-Ellis was not allowing such an over-stepping of the mark to stand and shrugged away Aguero's arm as the game continued.

The incident caused plenty of strong reactions, with many believing the veteran striker had touched Massey-Ellis in an inappropriate fashion.

Raheem Sterling is expected to be fit for Manchester City despite withdrawing from the England squad because of a hamstring injury.

"Come on guys. Sergio is the nicest person I ever met in my life". Arsenal have started the season well with three wins and only one defeat, and Mikel Arteta will be aiming to upset his old mentor Guardiola here.

City have already recorded a heavy defeat by Leicester and a draw with Leeds from their opening three games, and now face a period without Kevin De Bruyne after he picked up a minor injury on worldwide duty. "It was for our heads, so important this victory, for the problems that we have", Guardiola told Sky Sports.

"What we have done today, without the ball, defending together".
