Arsenal five point clear with 13 matches to play

Arsenal tightened their grip on top of the premier league after a 4-0 drubbing of Everton at the Emirates stadium on Wednesday.

Oleksandr Zinchenko’s pass played in Bukayo Saka to open the scoring just before halftime .

Saka then robbed Idrissa Gueye to play in Gabriel Martinelli who doubled the gunners lead in first half stoppage time . The flag went up for offside after he drove past Jordan Pickford but the decision was overturned after a VAR check.

Everton had no answers and Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard wrapped up their third successive league victory when he side-footed home Leandro Trossard’s cross after 71 minutes.

It was now simply a question of how many Arsenal would score to improve their goal difference, Martinelli adding his second and the Gunners’ fourth from Eddie Nketiah’s cross ten minutes from time.

Arsenal sit on 60 point and Manchester City are on 55 points six ahead of Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United who are on 49 points but with a game in hand.

The gunners next paly Bournemouth in an fairly easy fixture on paper and rivals Manchester City host Newcastle at the Etihad stadium.
