Arsenal looks to be on course to keep dreaming of the Premier League title after it beat Manchester United 1-0 at the Old Trafford Stadium, taking it to the top of the standings, on Sunday.

Unlike last season, where the Gunners lost the top spot eventually to see Manchester City run away with the title in the last weeks, the win meant the title might be decided on the final matchday.

The Gunners last won the Premier League in 2004 under Arsene Wenger but have undergone an optimistic change under the Spanish manager Arteta, reaching the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League after 14 years, this season.

Arsenal’s biggest competitor this season, too, remains Arteta’s previous employer Man City, which returned back on top of the standings after beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-0.
