Arsenal missed the chance to rejoin the title race after a 1-1 draw against Manchester City. David Silva scored on 18 minutes and Mathieu Flamini levelled shortly after the break. Arsene Wenger’s squad can now concentrate on the FA Cup and keeping the fourth place.

Struggling Manchester United needed to bounce back after two dismal home defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City and responded with a 4-1 win against Aston Villa. Ashley Westwood put the visitors in front as early as 13 minutes, converting a free-kick. Wayne Rooney scored a brace before the first-half mark. Juan Mata netted his first goal in the red shirt on 57 minutes and Chicharito added another in injury time. Supporters, visiting Old Trafford that afternoon could see a plane carrying ‘Wrong One - Moyes Out’ banner. The Red Devils are now set for Bayern Munich test on Tuesday night.
