Arsenal ensured they will be second - hot on the heels of Leicester City - after a home win against Manchester City on Monday night.
Theo Walcott put the Gunners ahead with a brilliant finish before Olivier Giroud doubled but it proved to be the Mesut Ozil show as he provided two assists to take his tally to 15.
Yaya Toure ensured a nervy finish for Arsene Wenger and his side thanks to a delightful finish from just outside the box with eight minutes remaining.

And supporters were quick to show their delight on Twitter.
It was a vital win for the Gunners as they look to end their long-overdue wait for Premier League success.
