Arsenal's Premier League lead cut down after loss

ARSENAL'S lead at the top of the Premier League was cut to two points after Manchester City hammered the Gunners 6-3 at Etihad Stadium.

It was City's eighth consecutive home win and the third time this season that Manuel Pellegrini's side had scored six goals after dishing out similarly crushing defeats to Spurs and Norwich.

Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Negredo, Fernandinho (two), David Silva and Yaya Toure scored the goals that moved City to third and within three points of Arsenal.

Second-placed Chelsea beat London rival Crystal Palace 2-1, Everton crushed Fulham 4-1 to go fourth, while West Brom sacked manager Steve Clarke after the 1-0 loss at Cardiff, the side's fourth consecutive league defeat.

Newcastle and Southampton drew 1-1, Hull and Stoke finished 0-0, while at the other end of the table, West Ham and bottom side Sunderland also played out a 0-0 draw at Upton Park.
