Arsenal capitalise on Tottenham defeat to climb into top four

Arsenal climbed into the Premier League’s top four with a laboured 2-1 win against spirited Leicester City and Liverpool continued their push with a pulsating 3-2 home defeat of rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday night.
With a revitalised Mesut Ozil playing a central role, Arsenal led 2-0 through Laurent Koscielny and Theo Walcott but Andrej Kramaric pulled a goal back as bottom club Leicester dominated the second half.
Mario Balotelli’s first Premier League goal for Liverpool sealed a topsy-turvey game that they twice led through Lazar Markovic and a Steven Gerrard penalty before being pegged back by the in-form Harry Kane and Mousa Dembele.
Fourth-placed Arsenal have 45 points from 25 games – two clear of sixth placed Spurs and three ahead of Liverpool in seventh – though they could be displaced by Manchester United in fifth who host lowly Burnley.
Queens Park Rangers claimed their first Premier League points away from home this season with a 2-0 victory against Sunderland thanks to goals from Leroy Fer and Bobby Zamora.
Hull City climbed out of the relegation zone with a 2-0 victory against free-falling Aston Villa – courtesy of goals from Nikica Jelavic and Dame N’Doye – subjecting the Midlands side to a fifth successive league defeat in the process.
