EPL Table: Premier League standings after 36 matches
Arsenal boosted their hopes of a Premier League top-four finish with a 2-0 win at St. Mary against Southampton on Wednesday night thanks to Alexis Sanchez 20th league goal of the season and a late goal from Olivier Giroud.
Arsene Wenger’s side thrashed the Red Devils 2-0 on Sunday to boost their hopes of Champions League qualification, and nailed another win against the Saints to leapfrog Jose Mourinho’s side into fifth place.
The result puts pressure on Liverpool who sits in the third place, who slipped up with a goalless draw against Puel’s Saint last weekend.
Arsenal have one more game in hand over Liverpool, and another win would take them to within one point of Jurgen Klopp’s side with two games left. City, meanwhile, also hold a game in hand over Liverpool and trail the Anfield club by a solitary point.
