Player ratings: Arsenal 4-1 Crystal Palace

Fresh Arsenal newsletter

Arsenal made light work of Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon, despite enduring a tiring Europa League exit just days earlier.

The Gunners were back to their fluent best for large parts of this game on a weekend where their title rivals Manchester City were not in Premier League action.

This presented an opportunity to extend the lead to 8 points before a trickier-looking schedule comes into play in April and Arsenal took full advantage.
