Arsenal, Tottenham win as top four clash

Social Share

LONDON – London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur moved within two points of top spot with dramatic 2-1 wins over Premier League Football leaders Leicester City and Manchester City respectively as the top four clashed on Sunday.

Third-placed Arsenal’s victory was secured by substitute Danny Welbeck in the dying seconds at The Emirates against a Leicester side who took the lead but were reduced to 10 men when Danny Simpson was sent off early in the second half.

Spurs won at Manchester City with a late strike from Christian Eriksen on his 24th birthday to stay in second spot above Arsenal on goal difference.

The most open championship race for years saw the two London teams increase the pressure on Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes, who are hanging on to first place with 53 points and 12 matches to play.

Sunday’s results also moved the pair four points clear of Manchester City, who stay fourth on 47, with Manchester United, who lost 2-1 at Sunderland on Saturday, six points further back and struggling to get close to the Champions League places. (Reuters)
