MANCHESTER, England -- Raheem Sterling capped a rousing second-half comeback by Manchester City with the winning goal as Arsenal squandered a lead to lose 2-1 for the second time in five days in the English Premier League on Sunday.The England winger collected Kevin De Bruynes sensational cross-field pass before cutting inside and driving home a low finish in the 71st minute at Etihad Stadium.Arsenal led through Theo Walcotts fifth-minute strike -- another goal that raised questions about Citys defensive frailties -- before Leroy Sane equalized in the 47th with his first goal for City.While City moved back to within seven points of first-place Chelsea, Arsenal dropped nine points off the leaders at the end of a week in which Arsene Wengers team also lost after being 1-0 up at Everton on Tuesday.We were caught cold in the second half and we dropped physically, Wenger said.City has reacted to a 4-2 loss at Leicester last weekend, which led to fierce criticism of coach Pep Guardiolas tactics, with two wins this week to revive the teams title challenge.Guardiolas side dominated the second half after playing it without a recognized striker, with Raheem Sterling -- a winger who was up front in the first half -- was sent out to the right flank.With Fernandinho back from a three-match suspension next week against Hull, Sergio Aguero only banned for one more game and Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus joining in January, things are looking up for City again.The victories give a lot of confidence in the mind of the players in what we are trying to do, Guardiola said. I am so happy for the fans. They stay until the 94th minute, normally they go with 10 minutes left.What will concern Guardiola, though, was the manner in which his defense was opened by Arsenal for Walcotts goal.Hector Bellerin was allowed to power up the field unchallenged from right back and pass the ball to Sanchez, who had dropped deep to also find space between City defense and midfield. Sanchezs reverse pass located Walcott between two defenders and the winger composed himself before slipping a low shot past goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.Guardiola decided not to play John Stones for the second straight game, preferring Nicolas Otamendi and Aleksandar Kolarov at center back, and City was often too open in defense while its build-up play was slow from the central midfield in the first half.It was a different story after halftime, with Arsenal unable to pick up Citys floating midfielders.One of them, Silva, clipped a first-time pass over the top for Sane -- who may have been slightly offside -- to race clear and sidefoot home for a first goal in his 13th appearance for City.Sane was denied in a one-on-one opportunity by Petr Cech, who tipped aside De Bruynes deflected shot. De Bruyne was growing in influence and it was his stunning pass that set up the winner.Guardiola praised the quality and the vision from Kevin to make an exceptional pass.Seven points is still a huge distance from a team who made 11 wins in a row, Guardiola said, referring to Chelsea. (We need to) be there as much as possible and wait for the opponent to fail. Henry Anderson Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Nate Hairston Jersey . -- Anaheim Ducks captain and leading scorer Ryan Getzlaf has been scratched from Sunday nights game against the Vancouver Canucks because of an upper-body injury. http://www.authenticfootballshopcolts.com/authentic-andrew-luck-jersey.html . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. Antonio Morrison Jersey . As he recorded his 23rd and 24th points of the evening, a segment of the sellout Air Canada Centre crowd expressed their appreciation for the Raptors point guard with a smattering of MVP chants. Scott Tolzien Jersey . Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead. Sri Lanka 155 for 2 (De Silva 78*, Dickwella 41) beat Zimbabwe 154 (Moor 47, Cremer 31*, Gunaratne 3-21) by eight wicketsScorecard and ball-by-ball details Sent in to bat on a green and slightly damp Harare surface, Zimbabwe lasted only 41.3 overs, leaving Sri Lanka a target of 155 that they chased down breezily courtesy Dhananjaya de Silvas unbeaten 78. Easy on the eye and ruthless on anything short or on his pads, de Silva scored his second ODI half-century, and put on 56 for the first wicket with Kusal Perera and 84 for the second with Niroshan Dickwella to steer Sri Lanka home with 153 balls remaining.Given the total they were defending, and the fact that the pitch was easing up as the match wore on, Zimbabwe couldnt afford to give Sri Lankas batsmen any lives. De Silva was the recepient of one off the first ball of the chase, when he nicked Tinashe Panyangara to wicketkeeper Peter Moor only to be reprieved by a no-ball call. The pressure was off Sri Lanka thereafter, with Zimbabwes bowlers sending down a steady stream of loose balls, usually erring on the short side. Perera and Dickwella were both out to pulls, but the shot was also highly productive, bringing Sri Lanka 38 runs off 14 balls, including seven of their fours and the one six of their innings, hit by Kusal Mendis off Graeme Cremers legspin.With the surface offering sideways movement as well as bounce, Upul Tharanga had no second thoughts about choosing to bowl first - it was the 17th time the captain winning the toss had done so in the last 19 matches at the Harare Sports Club - and his seamers took no time making use of the conditions, running through the top order to leave Zimbabwe 50 for 6. They were in danger of falling short of 100 for the fifth time in ODIs against Sri Lanka, but Peter Moor and Graeme Cremer prevented that eventuality with a seventh-wicket partnership of 55.Moor fell for 47, while Cremer, who moved the total past 150 with some help from Donald Tiripano and Tinashe Panyangara, was left stranded on 31. Making his ODI debut, allrounder Asela Gunaratne finished as Sri Lankas most successful bowler, picking up three lower-order wickets with his medium-paced offcutters.The early daamage, though, was done by Sri Lankas three frontline seamers.dddddddddddd Suranga Lakmal started the top-order procession in the fourth over of the innings, hitting a good length in the corridor and letting the pitch do the rest as Brian Chari and Craig Ervine poked uncertainly and nicked to the slip cordon. Nuwan Kulasekara, returning to Sri Lankas line-up for the first time since January, then got one to stop on Sikandar Raza, who flicked in the air to short midwicket, before Sean Williams threw his wicket away to spin, jumping out to left-arm spinner Sachith Pathirana, slogging, and missing the line of one that went with the angle from around the wicket.Nuwan Pradeep, the third seamer, struck the next two blows, straightening one just enough to get Chamu Chibhabha lbw playing across the line, and then, in his next over, moving it a little further to get a leaden-footed Elton Chigumbura caught behind. Zimbabwe had lost six wickets in just 17.1 overs.Moor looked in excellent touch in an aggressive 52-ball innings, striking cleanly and fearlessly whenever anything was in his zone; he hit four effortless sixes, the pick of them a shovel over long-on off Pathirana and a pull off Kulasekara that lifted Zimbabwe past 100. He fell the very next ball, though, caught on the crease by an inducker that hurried past his defensive jab and rapped his front pad in front of middle and leg.Tiripano showed impressive technique for a No. 9 in moving to 19 before going for an ill-advised hoick off Gunaratne that picked out long-on. Gunaratne then spun an offcutter like a fast offbreak to pin his fellow debutant Carl Mumba lbw, before Panyangara, slog-sweeping merrily, hit a four and a six before he was the last man out, miscuing another attempted slog. Watching from the other end, Cremer wouldnt have been too pleased with that shot, or indeed the one Tiripano played to get out. He had batted sensibly and looked in barely any trouble, and would have hoped someone stuck around long enough with him to take Zimbabwe as close to the 50-over mark as possible.
