Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was satisfied with their 1-1 draw against Arsenal.

Despite taking an early lead through David Silva, it was Arsenal who showed the more desire as they recovered to turn in a strong second-half display and levelled through Mathieu Flamini.

Pellegrini said: "Four points from Manchester United and Arsenal when both games were away is a good week for us.

"Of course we could be more happy if we won today - and we had, especially in the first half, the chances to do it.

"Arsenal had a better second half, but no chances to score apart from the goal."

The Chilean coach added: "It is not easy to come to Arsenal's home and beat Arsenal.

"All of us want to win all the points, but, I repeat, we had a good performance against a very difficult team at their own stadium."
