Arsenal moves to within one point of top four in EPL
    2017-May-15  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    ARSENAL produced one of its best performances of the season in the English Premier League (EPL) to beat Stoke 4-1 Saturday and move to within one point of the top four with two games remaining.

    If fourth-placed Liverpool fails to beat West Ham away the next day, Arsenal knows that victories over Sunderland on Tuesday and Everton on the final day will earn the team a place in the Champions League for the 20th straight season.

    It’s some turnaround from a month ago, when Arsenal lost at Crystal Palace 3-0 and Arsene Wenger’s future was looking bleak amid strong criticism from a section of fans.

    On Saturday, as he was making his way along the touchline toward the dressing room after the final whistle, Wenger gave a wave to Arsenal’s visiting supporters and they roared their approval. The pressure on Liverpool was ramped up even further by Manchester City beating Leicester 2-1 to move into third place, above the Reds.

    City has 72 points, Liverpool 70, and Arsenal 69. Manchester United is on 65 points in sixth place, with a game in hand.

    Olivier Giroud tapped in two close-range finishes, while Alexis Sanchez netted his 50th Premier League goal for Arsenal in the team’s fifth win in its last six games.

    Mesut Ozil also scored, finishing off a slick team move that showed the confidence Arsenal is starting to play with.

    Stoke’s reply came through substitute Peter Crouch in the 67th, which made it 2-1. Replays showed the striker punched the ball into the net, but the offense was missed by match officials.

    City got two big breaks on its way to victory over the deposed champions.

    The team’s first goal, scored by David Silva, could have been ruled out as Raheem Sterling was standing in an offside position and directly in Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel’s line of vision when Silva took aim.
