Tottenham 2-1 Burnley
(Alli 27', Rose 71')-(Barnes 21')

Arsenal blows an early week for the second match running and now finds themselves nine points adrift of Chelsea at the top of the Premier League. To make things look worse, they are only one point ahead of Tottenham for fourth place. Things were looking solid for the Gunners just a week ago, and since then all of the main title challengers have won two matches while they have done nothing but lose. Man City are currently in second, seven points back, and Liverpool are nine back with today's Merseyside Derby to play. The title seems like it's Chelsea's to lose at this point,
