THE BALL – Arsenal cements 4th place and gets closer to Chelsea, Everton closer to survival (England)

With Cedric in the starting line-up and Nuno Tavares on the bench, Arsenal beat Leeds 2-1 in a Matchday 36 game and cemented fourth place, just one point behind Chelsea.

Nketiah was the figure of a flurry of entry, with goals in the 5th and 10th minutes, the Londoners also benefiting from the sending off of Ayling at 27. On the only shot so far, Leeds have reduced by Llorente, at 66, but did not avoid defeat and fell to first place in relegation (16th).

In the fight for permanence, Everton recorded the second consecutive victory, going to Leicester (without Ricardo Pereira) prevailing 2-1. With AndrĂ© Gomes on the bench (he was not used), Frank Lampard’s side took the lead in the 6th minute through Mykolenko, Daka equalized for the home side in the 11th minute ; however, Holgate put Everton back in the lead in the 30th minute, a precious victory which remained until the end.

Everton climb back to 16th place, pushing Leeds and Burnley down, still having one game less over the two.

West Ham beat relegated Norwich 4-0. Benrahma (12 and 45+3), Antonio (30) and Lanzini (65, penalty) scored.
