|Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea produced heroics as the second-placed team defeated Arsenal 3-1 and kept in touch with their city rivals.Chelsea overwhelmed Newcastle 3-1 Greg Holland Jersey to stay third and Liverpool thrashed Brighton 5-1 to move into that fourth Champions League spot.
At the other end, Swansea sunk to the bottom of the table with a 2-1 loss to Stoke.You can see the thinking behind my team below but, first, have a go at picking your own team of Derick Brassard Womens Jersey the week.Choose your XI http://www.officialbluejacketsshop.com/authentic-89-sam-gagner-jersey.html from the shortlist selected by BBC Sport journalists and share it with your friends.
If Manchester United win the title, it will be down to the brilliance of David http://www.officialmavericksproshop.com/authentic-30-seth-curry-jersey.html de Gea. His performance against Arsenal was utterly breathtaking.
The save after the ball inadvertently came off Romelu Lukaku's leg and flew in the direction of his own net was unbelievable. However, it was the double save from Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez that turned the game for me. Had Arsenal equalised at that point, the outcome of this titanic tussle might have been very different.
All credit to United. This is a player who was on the verge of signing for Real Madrid two years ago, and had it not been for a so-called 'clerical' error might have done. One manager later, and Champions League qualification, we have not heard a squeak from De Gea about wanting to return to Spain or Real Madrid for that matter. I wonder how much of that is down to the presence of a certain Jose Mourinho?
Precisely why Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny felt the need to play the ball to his left to a marooned Sead Kolasinac, which led to United's opener, I don't know. What I can tell you is that it set the tone for an extraordinary game of football littered with the most bizarre moments.
From the moment Antonio Valencia cut out the ball, his sole intention was to make Arsenal, and in particular Koscielny, pay for his error. The fact midfielder Paul Pogba was involved in the move and Chris Sale Authentic Jersey rolled the most inviting ball for Valencia to control and smash through Petr Cech's legs wasn't wasted on me either. I refuse to allow the Frenchman's dreadful fluorescent-styled Mohican haircut to influence my regard for his talents.
I have commended the performances of Valencia on a number of occasions already this season and continue to do so. The Manchester United captain continues to have an amazing influence on his team. This was one of the most professional performances I have seen from United away from home, and Valencia set the tone.
