Arsenal are one step closer to their first English title since 2004. The Gunners won the London derby against Crystal Palace 4-1. Leandro Trossard again provided an assist.
Arsenal had something to make up for after being surprisingly eliminated from the Europa League by Sporting Lisbon earlier this week. A witty answer came in the London derby against Crystal Palace. At half time it was already 2-0 after goals from Martinelli and Saka. Ten minutes after the break, Xhaka made it 3-0 on a pass from Leandro Trossard.
The books were not completely closed afterwards, because Crystal Palace threatened to get back into the match with Schlupp’s 3-1. Saka, however, put things in order with his second goal of the day. The final score was 4-1, Trossard was substituted after 65 minutes.
Arsenal are now 8 points ahead of only remaining rivals Manchester City in the Premier League, although the Citizens have played a game less.
