Olivier Giroud, 12 Goals

Arsenal and Olivier Giroud kept up their title challenge on Sunday, as the Gunners overcame Bournemouth.

The Frenchman once again led the line for his team, and Arsenal gave a professional performance in front of their travelling contingent.

Giroud created the opener for Ozil, nodding the ball across the area from a set piece for the mercurial German to score.

Bournemouth tried valiantly to get back into the game, but Oxlade-Chamberlain struck just a minute after Ozil's goal, giving manager Arsene Wenger's team a two-goal advantage after 24 minutes.

Arsenal played within their capabilities in the second half, but Giroud's power and poise up front kept the hosts on the back foot. 

The Gunners now reside five points from the summit, as Leicester's stunning form continues without faltering.

 

Diego Costa, 9 Goals

Costa produced a great escape for Chelsea in their 1-1 game with United, as the visitors dominated large parts of the game.

The Brazil-born striker awkwardly rounded David De Gea in the 91st minute of the contest and slotted away his effort with calmness and ease. 

Costa was Chelsea's primary threat throughout, but the reigning champions were second-best to the Red Devils in both halves.

However, the hosts pushed forward in the final moments of the encounter, and United buckled when it appeared they would creep over the finish line.

Journalist Kristian Sturt highlighted Costa after his strike on Sunday:

Chelsea still look a million miles from their performance value of last season, but there are signs of improvement.

Costa looks motivated in the striker's role, but the service was average at best to him against United.

If the Blues can find a way of activating his talents at the end of the campaign, a top-six finish is not beyond the champions after six months of failure.
