    Laurent Koscielny lashed home a dramatic equalizer as Arsenal maintained their unbeaten start to the Premier League season with a 1-1 draw at Manchester City.
    The Frenchman popped up in the box to rifle home a weak clearance by Joleon Lescott and give Arsenal a deserved point.
    City had taken a 40th minute lead when Lescott powered home a header from close-range and looked set to move to within two points of league leaders Chelsea.
