Premier League: Arsenal, Chelsea win 1-0; Christian Benteke ends goal drought

Marcos Alonso provided the breakthrough, the Spanish wing-back curling a free-kick past flat-footed Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster from 35 yards. Chelsea remained five points ahead of fourth-place Arsenal.

Day passes, which let you add Sky Sports channels for 24 hours, start at £6.99 a day, with a weekly pass starting from £10.99, and no locking in to a contract. The game ended 1-0, in Arsenal's favor. 'Arsenal gave me everything', said the man who now runs the Willow Foundation, started in honour of his much-loved daughter Meg, who sadly lost her brave fight with cancer 19 years ago this month. I find it quite sad that the club have allowed [Arsene] Wenger to take the stance of not selling them, potentially costing the club £120 million in fees that they're now not getting. [He stays] until the end of the season, for sure.

Arsenal are set to offload ten first-team players between next month and the summer, as the club set for a major overhaul, according to the Daily Mail.

Ilkay Gundogan opened the scoring at Eastlands before Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling netted after the interval to ensure City opened up a 14-point lead over second placed Manchester United, who face West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. The former Liverpool man received his second booking in the dying embers of the game.

The match itself was one that went by with few outstanding chances, with Arsenal struggling to break their opponents down, while Newcastle were more than happy to sit deep and soak up the pressure, with the game falling into the classic attack vs defence style.

The Magpies began the game just a point above the bottom three and their lack of reward for a commendable showing will do little ease to relegation fears.

Former Republic of Ireland international Shay Given will be this week's guest in the Boot Room.

A lot will depend on whether Barcelona or Manchester United are prepared to meet his demands.

Meanwhile, playmaker Mesut Ozil, despite being linked with a move away from Arsenal, is prepared to work hard to help the Gunners close the gap on the leaders. It's very difficult for me to tell you because I will analyse every case separately, but overall my wish and desire is everybody stays.

Mesut 'The Magician' Ozil did what he does best (not assisting this time), he volleyed the ball at the far corner with a majestic touch, that would make old Zizou wonder about its technicolour beauty.

Jonjo Shelvey will serve a two-match ban after his second red card of the season.
