Arsenal claimed a huge win in the race for the Premier League title, beating Manchester United 3-2 late on in a pulsating encounter at Emirates Stadium.

Eddie Nketiah scored twice for the leaders, including the 90th-minute winner, where he produced a brilliant piece of improvisation to divert in Martin Odegaard's shot from close range.

Man Utd opened the scoring when Marcus Rashford netted a superb long-range goal, but Nketiah headed in the equaliser eight minutes later.

Arsenal went in front early in the second half when Bukayo Saka hit a superb shot for his eighth Premier League goal of the season. He's the first player since Thierry Henry in 2001, and only the third in Arsenal's history, to score in three consecutive fixtures against Man Utd.

Lisandro Martinez's looping header levelled the match again before Nketiah pounced late on as Arsenal laid down another marker in their bid for a first title since 2004.

They are on 50 points after 19 matches, maintaining their five-point gap over Manchester City, who have played a fixture more. Man Utd are fourth on 39 points.

Erling Haaland was the difference for Man City again as his hat-trick secured a 3-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

His treble came in 14 minutes and was Haaland's fourth hat-trick of the season, moving him further clear in the race for the Castrol Golden Boot. He is on 25 Premier League goals, two more than last season's winners.

Victory for City consolidated their place in second, while Wolves drop to 17th and are only above the bottom three on goal difference.
