Entertainment at the Etihad

After their 2-1 defeat to Newcastle in midweek, a victory was paramount to Manchester City if they wanted keep their title hopes alive.
And it didn't take long for them to get going scoring against Arsenal. Alex Iwobi was dispossessed just outside of the box and the ball found it's way to Sergio Aguero to put them 1-0 up a minute within kick-off. Surprisingly, it didn't last long, after a Laurent Koscielny header in the 11th minute put Arsenal on equal terms.
Aguero then found the net once again just before half time to put the hosts back ahead, but his day wasn't over there, completing his hat-trick in the 61st minute.
The win puts them just two points behind the league leaders Liverpool before they play at West Ham tomorrow, and their odds for the title has shortened from 2.72 to 2.48. The market on the Reds has barely moved and stays around the 1.70 mark.

Momentum Manchester United

The Ole Gunnar Solskjaer effect is still in place with Manchester United extending their unbeaten league run to eight games after their 1-0 win away at Leicester. It wasn't the best of displays from the team, with the difference coming within the first 10 minutes of kick-off, a misplaced pass finding Paul Pogba and beautifully played into Marcus Rashford for his 10th goal of the season. However, apart from that, there was not much else.
The hosts had 45% of possession which worked for their counter-attacking style and managed to attempt 16 shots, six of those on target but there was no real end-product.
This win means that Manchester United have won five consecutive away games in all competitions for the first time since October 2012, they're two points off Chelsea in fourth and their Top Four chances have now shortened from 2.80 to 2.40.

Son keeps Spurs in contention
