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. Red Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 33 .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. Mens Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31 .

Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter. OXFORD, Miss. -- Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze hired new offensive and defensive coordinators in an effort to overhaul his program following a disappointing 5-7 season.The school announced on Friday that Phil Longo will run the offense. Longo was the offensive coordinator at Sam Houston State, which had a 12-1 record this season and has made the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs in each of the last three seasons.Wesley McGriff returns to Ole Miss as defensive coordinator following four seasons away -- including one at Auburn and three with the New Orleans Saints.The Bearkats offense averaged 547.3 yards per game this season, which was No. 1 in the nation at the FCS level. Like Freeze, Longo worked his way up to big-time college football after starting his career as a high school coach.We explored every name for this position, but Phil has been on my radar for a long time and it was clear that he is the man that can take our offense from good to great, Freeze said in a statement. Over the past three years, he has authored one of the most prolific and innovative offenses in all divisions of college football.Longo inherits an Ole Miss offense that threw for 314.9 yards per game in 2016, which was No. 1 in the Southeastern Conferrence.

He also has a young quarterback in Shea Patterson -- who started three games as a freshman this fall -- to build the offense around.Longos biggest challenge will be improving an Ole Miss running game thats been inconsistent the past few seasons. The Rebels have also struggled in the red zone, settling for field goals instead of touchdowns.At Sam Houston State, Longos offense scored touchdowns in 80.3 percent of its trips to red zone in 2016, which ranked No. 1 in FCS.McGriff was on Freezes staff in 2012 as a co-defensive coordinator and cornerbacks coach.Wesley is the total package -- an outstanding leader, creative coach and dynamic recruiter, Freeze said. The defenses have been outstanding at every place he has been, and his most recent experience at Auburn has him well prepared for this opportunity.McGriff will take over an Ole Miss defense that struggled in 2016. The Rebels gave up a SEC-worst 34 points per game and were particularly bad stopping the run, giving up more than 246 yards per game.-----More AP college football: and .
