A magnificent pass set Aubameyang through after 16 minutes and his display couldn't have been more different than his Etihad horror-show.
He made a number of fine blocks and marshaled his defence. Just so much better as one of three centre-halves.
The Scot continues to go from strength-to-strength whether at wing-back or, as here, as a third centre-half.
No nonsense when required, but also composed in possession - witness Aubameyang's second - he read the game astutely throughout.
The Spaniard defended diligently down the right and raided forwards to good effect whenever the opportunity arose. Another smart display from the on-loan Real Madrid midfielder which showed precisely why Arteta is desperate to keep him; always wants the ball, and is willing to back himself when under pressure, but doesn't shirk the dirty stuff.
Exemplary at the heart of midfield, the Swiss' renaissance under Arteta continues. Used the ball well from the base of midfield but it was his ability to spot danger and shut off passing lanes that helped shut down a number of dangerous City avenues.
Out of position as a left wing-back, Maitland-Niles stuck gamely to his task up against Mahrez. Also tried to offer a threat going the other way, but a couple of opportunities just went awry.
Delightful cross for Aubameyang's opening goal, Arsenal's record signing carried the ball well to relieve pressure when required and dug in defensively.
Improving after a tough start. Used his body well to protect possession, chased and harried and gave Arsenal a platform to play from when they were under the cosh.
Dusted himself down after a miss when one-v-one to score the opening goal with an outstanding, clinical half-volley before doing his best Thierry Henry impression for his second.
Always a threat with his runs off the back of defenders from deep and dug in defensively too. Could do nothing about either goal, but the Brazilian kept City in it in the first half with a number of fine stops.
Caught out by Aubameyang on the opening goal; knew the Gabonese was there, but as he looked to keep his defensive line wasn't able to keep tight enough.
A tough night for the young Spaniard who used the ball well but was left eating Aubameyang's dust on the second goal.
The French centre-back wasn't his usual dominant self, beaten in the air on a couple of occasions at set-pieces.
The Frenchman had been good in recent weeks and gave City an outlet down the left here, but was again caught out regularly. Arsenal clearly targeted him with Pepe and Bellerin doubling up and he allowed the Ivorian too much room to cross for the opener.
Started at the base of midfield ahead of Rodri but simply wasn't the German general's night. Hooked with 25 minutes remaining.

The result leaves Manchester City 14 points behind leaders Liverpool, but now four points from Leicester after their slip against Norwich on Saturday, while Arsenal sit ninth, seven points off the top four.
In their last home match before Christmas, Arsenal were carved open with ease and conceded from Manchester City's first two attacks.
Arsenal made two changes from the win at West Ham as the injured Xhaka and Tierney dropped out, replaced by Kolasinac and Guendouzi.
Gabriel Martinelli nearly put the Gunners ahead in the first minute, piling into the box and seeing Ederson save from a tight angle on the left of the box, but just moments later the atmosphere in the Emirates was flattened by a stunning De Bruyne strike.
Gabriel Jesus' cross-shot from the left of the box was parried away by Leno, falling to De Bruyne on the edge of the box, and though it came to him fast and slightly off the ground, De Bruyne controlled his half volley beautifully, powering into the net with Leno rooted.
And it was within 15 minutes as City moved through Arsenal's lines with ease. Phil Foden found De Bruyne, who showed fine strength to travel 40 yards into the box and square for Sterling from the left, and the England man finished with ease into the empty net from close range.
The De Bruyne show continued as he made it three just before the break, collecting Foden's pass and curling left-footed into the bottom left corner from 20 yards as Arsenal stood off the brilliant Belgian.
He could have had a first-half hat-trick if it weren't for Leno, who superbly fingertipped De Bruyne's curling effort from 25 yards onto the post.
Arsenal had 10 men for the third goal, with Sead Kolasinac injured and Bukayo Saka not ready to come on, with interim boss Freddie Ljungberg explaining after the game: "That's something we need to learn, to get ready quicker, but also when you are injured, you need to stay down until players are ready, so we can get ready.
It was an all-too-familiar sight for Arsenal fans as their defence fell apart again, prompting jeers from the home fans at half-time.
Things didn't get much better for the hosts after the break. Ozil was brought off before the hour mark, trudging off the pitch too slowly for Arsenal fans' liking, and they reacted in frustration at the German before he reacted by kicking his gloves away.
Ljungberg explained that he made the substitution to bring more energy to the team, saying: "You should be annoyed when you come off, but I'm the coach and take the decision that I want more energy in the team.
