Arsenal has moved eight points clear at the top of the Premier League after beating Crystal Palace 4-1.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says this was a perfect response after his side lost on penalties to Sporting Lisbon in the last 16 of the Europa League on Thursday.

Gabriel Martinelli put them ahead with his 13th goal of the season, but there only looked to be one winner, with Palace powerless to stop Arsenal.

However, Bukayo Saka scored 2-0 for Arsenal with Granit Xhaka adding a third in the 55th minute.

Palace got a goal back, but it was no surprise that Saka soon scored again to take his total to 13 for the campaign.

Arteta will also be delighted with the character his team has shown as they have bounced back from setbacks.

This victory was their sixth in a row in the league since a 3-1 home loss to City threatened to derail their title hopes.

Arsenal has recovered in style and gone into the international break in pole position.

Arsenal now has 69 points from 28 matches, with second-placed Manchester City, who beat Burnley 6-0 in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Saturday, on 61 points having played a game less.
