Arsenal cut the gap between them and fourth-placed Manchester City to seven points with a 2-1 win away at Middlesbrough.

The Gunners went in front through Alexis Sanchez, who found the back of the net with a delicately placed free-kick in the opening 45 minutes.

Spanish striker Alvaro Negredo brought Boro back on level terms before Mesut Ozil scored Arsenal’s second and their winner.
