Arsenal player ratings vs Crystal Palace: Brilliant Bukayo Saka sends Premier League leaders EIGHT points clear!

Arsenal opened up a commanding eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League with an ultimately comfortable 4-1 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.

Gabriel Martinelli opened the scoring for the Gunners, producing a fine left-footed finish after pouncing on a low cross from Bukayo Saka.

The latter doubled the hosts’ advantage after a clever and perfectly-weighted pass from Ben White had opened up the Palace defence.
