Arsenal Crush Fulham, Man United Held, Newcastle Win

LONDON (Reuters) - Arsenal showed no sign of feeling the pressure in their bid for a first Premier League title since 2004 as they strolled to a 3-0 victory at Fulham on Sunday to answer chasing Manchester City’s win 24 hours earlier.
Unlike a week ago when the Gunners required a winner in the seventh minute of stoppage time to beat Bournemouth, the points were in the bag by halftime at Craven Cottage with Gabriel, Gabriel Martinelli and captain Martin Odegaard all on target.
Third-placed Manchester United had Casemiro sent off in the first half of their 0-0 draw at home to bottom club Southampton.
Newcastle United gained a first win in six league games to rekindle their push for Champions League qualification - Miguel Almiron’s late goal earning a 2-1 home victory over struggling Wolverhampton Wanderers to move above Liverpool into fifth.
West Ham United moved out of the relegation zone on goal difference as they drew 1-1 at home to Aston Villa.
Arsenal restored their five-point advantage and could go eight clear before the looming international break when they host Crystal Palace next weekend while Manchester City are involved in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
The Gunners’ comfortable win at Fulham means they are the first side in English Football League history to win five consecutive London derbies away from home without conceding.
