Arsenal stretched their lead at the top of the table to eight points after cruising past Crystal Palace 4-1 at the Emirates on Sunday.
The visitors almost took a shock lead when Wilfried Zaha saw his effort cannon back off the post early on, but Arsenal started 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 shortly after half time, but Palace briefly threatened a comeback as 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 firmly on track.
