Comments:

Arsenal clinched the double with this win. They also became the first team since Preston North End in 1888-89 not to lose an away match in an entire season, equalled Manchester United's record of 12 consecutive Premier League wins, set a club reord of eight consecutive away wins, extended their unbeaten record to 28 matches and scored in their 38th consecutive Premier League matches.
