The verdict: With a points advantage and game in hand, Arsenal remain in the driving seat. However, Mikel Arteta and his men do have some tricky fixtures to come against Chelsea, Tottenham and United themselves.

Surprise package West Ham are still in with a shout, but they only have seven games to play and in between that run-in they take on Lyon over two legs in the Europa League. Will that adventure prove to be a distraction for them?
