North London giants Arsenal have moved four points clear of Manchester United in the race to secure a top-four spot in the Premier League at the end of the season after they beat hosts Aston Villa at the weekend.

Arsenal began the weekend in fourth place and with a one-point lead over Manchester United. They had the chance to move four points clear of United with an away win over Aston Villa with the Red Devils not in league action. Manchester United were not in league action over the weekend due to the FA Cup commitments of opponents Liverpool. The Premier League clash between hosts Liverpool and Manchester United have now been rescheduled for next month.
