As Arsenal fans battled out over Arsene Wenger’s future with aerial protests, the Gunners found themselves utterly outclassed by a powerful, organised Albion side.

Two Craig Dawson headers either side of Hal Robson-Kanu pouncing on David Ospina spilling a cross were too much for the visitors, whose goal came from Alexis Sanchez.

Further up the table, Gary Cahill's 87th-minute header saw Chelsea beat Stoke City and open up a 13-point gap at the top of the standings ahead of Tottenham and Manchester City playing on Sunday.

Elsewhere, a Troy Deeney own goal saw Crystal Palace collect their third win on the bounce against Watford, while West Ham fell to 3-2 defeat at the London Stadium to a resurgent Leicester City.
