They were a good couple of hours for Arsenal. They beat Stoke 1-0 at the Emirates, while Chelsea lost to Newcastle and Everton drew against Aston Villa.

After a Saturday of making up points for the Gunners, they find themselves just one point behind Everton and Tottenham (though the latter have a game in hand) and five points behind Chelsea in third.

A late, deflected free kick by Lukas Podolski broke the deadlock, giving Arsenal a strong start to February.

The Gunners dictated the flow of the match with 66 percent of possession and 23 attempts on goal. The game also saw Mikel Arteta return from injury back into his role of defensive midfielder, pushing Jack Wilshere further up the pitch.

Here are six talking points from the match.
