Arsenal didn’t spend too much time outside the top of the table, as they quickly ascended back into the pent house on the weekend. After losing to Manchester City last midweek, the Gunners fell out of first on point differential, with the defending champs going back up top.
However, this past weekend saw Arsenal beat Aston Villa, and Man City drop points to Nottingham Forest, so now they’re back to leading the pack again. Next they’ll visit Leicester City, and they’ll do so maintaining pole position.
