Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal are now only a point behind the Citizens after picking up an impressive 3 – 0 victory over Sam Allardyce’s West Ham on Saturday. Giroud, Ramsey and Flamini netted one each at the Emirates to grab their 17th win of the season.

Just a point behind the Gunners, Louis van Gaal’s men registered one of their best performance of the season so far. It could be labeled as their perfect reaction to the FA Cup exit at the hands of Arsenal. Mauricio Pochettino’s were the victims to Manchester United’s great attacking play. United didn’t concede a goal, while scoring three. The boxing celebration of Wayne Rooney made more headlines than the goals itself. This could be the start of something very special for the 20 time champions and this win at Old Trafford would give a great deal of confidence to the players for their visit to Anfield this week.
