Several Manchester City fans made a comparison between Emmanuel Adebayor and Rodri Hernandez after the latter scored a stoppage time winner against the Gunners in a fierce Premier League contest on Saturday. The City fans used their various Twitter accounts to make reference to Emmanuel Adebayor and his wild celebration against the Gunners in 2009 after Spanish international Rodri celebrated in a similar manner during the league game at the Emirates Stadium last weekend.
History repeated itself again when Rodri celebrated wildly in front of the Arsenal fans after he scored a late goal to give Manchester City a controversial 2-1 comeback over the Gunners away from home. His strike sealed an 11th straight victory for the reigning Premier League champions.
Arsenal were clearly the better side in the first half and they were rewarded with the Bukayo Saka goal just after the first third of the game off the assist from Scotland international star Kieran Tierney. The goal from Saka gave the Gunners a 1-0 advantage at the halfway point of the game.
Arsenal were still with their advantage until the turning point of the game when centre referee Stuart Artwell awarded a penalty to the visitors via VAR after Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka was deemed to have fouled Bernardo Silva in the Arsenal box. Algerian star RiyadMahrez scored the resulting penalty and that paved the way for Rodri to score a late winner against ten-man Arsenal. The Gunners had Brazilian defender Gabriel Magalhaes sent off for two yellow cards some minutes after the City equaliser.
