Arsenal may not have got the result that they were looking for against West Ham United – but there is still good news when it comes to their closest rivals.

The Gunners' single point earned at the London Stadium has put them on 74 for the season with seven games remaining in this Premier League season. That's a full 21 points clear of neighbours, managerless Tottenham Hotspur, who sit in fifth place in the table on 53 points.
