Arsenal stretched their lead at the top of the table to eight points after beating Crystal Palace 4-1 at the Emirates on Sunday.
The visitors almost took the lead when Wilfried Zaha saw his effort cannon back off the post early on, but Arsenal began to click into gear as the first half wore on and opened up a commanding lead thanks to strikes from Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka.
Granit Xhaka made it three after half an hour, but Palace briefly threatened to hit back when Jeffrey Schlupp pulled one back and then Zaha went close again. However, Saka put the game to bed with a composed finish from Kieran Tierney’s cut-back to keep Arsenal’s title charge strong.
