Arsenal’s win over Crystal Palace has seen them continue to exceed expectations as they maintain their Premier League title charge.
The Gunners won 4-1 on Sunday afternoon, a near-perfect response to their Europa League exit earlier in the week.
Gabriel Martinelli’s strike, Bukayo Saka’s double and Granit Xhaka’s finish saw Arsenal extend their lead at the top to eight points.
The result sees them remain in control of the title race heading into the international break.
It has also led to Mikel Arteta’s side reaching some impressive feats as they set their sights on their first title since 2004.
Arsenal are the first club in the history of English football to win nine London derbies in a single season.
Only Brentford could stop them from making it a full house thanks to their 1-1 draw in February – a match that saw the Bees’ equaliser come in controversial circumstances.
The Gunners’ victory was also their 22nd of the Premier League season so far, the most they have ever won in their first 28 games.

This is the same number of wins they picked up in the previous campaign, and they still have ten left to play.
Arteta’s title chasers also sit on 69 points for the campaign, equalling their tally for last season.
As the season progresses, it looks increasingly likely that Arsenal will go on to win the title.
Manchester City remain behind them and the two sides still need to meet once again before the campaign’s conclusion.
However, with Arsenal out of the FA Cup and no longer competing in Europe, the league is now their sole focus.
Results and performances similar to that against Palace will surely guide them on the road to success, with the club very much in control of their own destiny.
