Arsenal regain momentum with win at Bournemouth as Leicester loom next

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says February will be a big month for Arsenal, one that could define their season.

If one of the biggest Premier League talking points of the weekend occurred around 77 minutes of Liverpool's match against Sunderland, Arsenal's Sunday was instead defined by 88 seconds. That was all the time it took for a three-game goalless streak to effectively end, and for quickfire strikes from Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to see Arsenal accelerate away from Bournemouth in a vital 2-0 victory away from home.

Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol lambastes Manchester City for their inability to defend.

When Leicester travelled to the Etihad Stadium last year, they returned contemplating a 2-0 defeat, a six-game winless run and a league position that left them seven points from safety. Around 11 months later, a superb 3-1 win on Saturday increased the gap at the top of the table to five points as the unlikeliest title challenge in years continues to gather strength.
