THE BIGGER PICTURE: Arsenal will be well aware of the fact that they need to win to continue their Premier League title tilt after Manchester City beat Leicester City 3-1 on Saturday. The Gunners are currently on a run of eight games unbeaten in the Premier League, but did suffer a blow before half time when a clumsy Gabriel challenge gifted West Ham the chance to pull one back from the penalty spot.
WHAT NEXT FOR ARSENAL? After playing West Ham, they will face Southampton on Friday, while City will play in the FA Cup that weekend. Mikel Arteta's side will then play City at the Etihad Stadium on April 26.
