Following a routine home victory over managerless Crystal Palace, Arsenal increased its lead over the field in the Premier League to eight points.
Gabriel Martinelli’s left-footed goal at Emirates Stadium gave the Gunners, who are attempting to win the title for the first time since 2003-04, the lead. It was Martinelli’s sixth league goal overall.
After receiving a pass from Ben White, Bukayo Saka increased the advantage by beating goalkeeper Joe Whitworth, who is only 19 years old.
After Jeffrey Schlupp equalized from close range after a corner for Palace’s first goal in five games, Granit Xhaka made it 3-0 with a first-time finish off of Leandro Trossard’s assist.
