Arsenal strengthen top 4 grip
Arsenal seemingly strengthened their grip on a top 4 spot with a comfortable 2-0 win over Leicester City, courtesy of goals from Thomas Partey and an Alexandre Lacazette spot-kick.
The win means that Arsenal have taken 25 points from their last possible 30, with only defeat to Manchester City and a draw with Burnley blotting their copybook. It is form akin to the top 2 in the division.

However, that could come to an end imminently, with the Gunners hosting Liverpool in midweek before a trciky trip to Villa Park to take on a resurgent Villa side under Steven Gerrard.
For now, however, they are firm favourites for the top 4.
Changes in the chasing pack
Meanwhile, there was a change in fortunes behind the Gunners as Manchester United propelled themselves back into the conversation thanks to a brilliant win over Tottenham, who themselves risk slipping out of contention.
The Red Devils currently sit a point behind Arsenal, though crucially they have played three games more than their north London competition. As a result, Bet365 has them as 7/2 outsiders to finish fourth come the end of the season.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are even more unfavoured following their defeat to United, despite having arguably the easiest run-in of the sides in the race. Six points behind Arsenal having played a game more, they are 9/2 on to finish 4th come the end of the season, according to bet365.
Last chance saloon
A win for West Ham kept their chances of Champions League football alive, albeit very slim. Three points behind Arsenal having played three games more, Moyes’ side seemingly need a miracle to finish fourth, and as a result are priced at 16/1.
Another side in desperate need of a miracle are Wolves, who recorded a scrappy 1-0 win over Everton. For Bruno Lage, however, it seems that the ship has sailed this season, with the bookies offering odds of 50/1 for a fourth-placed finish.
