LONDON (AP) -- Arsenal prevented Manchester City from going top of the Premier League on Saturday while keeping up its own pursuit of the title with a 1-1 draw on Saturday.

With Arsenal still reeling from a demoralizing 6-0 loss at Chelsea last weekend, David Silva completed a counter-attack to put City in front in the 18th minute.

But conceding early made Arsenal more assertive and Mathieu Flamini turned Lukas Podolski's cross into the net to level eight minutes into the second half.

Arsenal, which hasn't lost at home since the opening day, stays fourth but is now only five points behind Chelsea.

Chelsea's shock 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace presented third-placed City with a chance to take control of the league. Although City is two points behind, Chelsea has two games in hand.
