Arsenal took advantage of the reduced Premier League programme this week to further consolidate their position at the top of the table with a 4-1 win over managerless Crystal Palace.
Goals from Martinelli, Saka (2), and Xhaka were too much for the Eagles, who did briefly threaten a fightback when Jeffrey Schlupp scored after 63 minutes to reduce the deficit to 3-1. Arsenal killed off any slim chance of a Palace comeback with Bukayo Saka scoring his second and Arsenal's fourth on 74 minutes.
The win sees the Gunners open up an 8 point gap over City. Ad a result, 888Sport now makes them 4/6 favourites to win the Premier League title.
City were involved in FA Cup action this weekend so had no leaguefixture. They completed a 6-0 win over Burnley, thanks in the main to another hat-trick from the irrepressible Erling Haaland.
