The win means that they have a three-point gap between themselves and Liverpool, while they are just one point behind Tottenham in third place.

Jenkinson was previously set to sign for Crystal Palace until the deal broke down due to a failure to agree personal terms. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger intimated the former Charlton man requested more money than Palace were willing to offer. Jenkinson could run his contract down at the club and leave on a free next summer.

Arsenal defender Gabriel once again had a solid performance at right-back in Saturday’s 5-1 win away to West Ham United, and looks a safe bet to deputise while the Gunners are without Hector Bellerin and Mathieu Debuchy.

The athletic Brazilian has featured in the Gunners’ last two Premier League games in the makeshift position, originally coming on against Bournemouth in late November for the injured Debuchy, and is now likely to be a regular until either player returns.

Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has spoken about his recovery from an ankle injury and revealed when he expects to return to full fitness.

The 21-year-old suffered an ankle problem with virtually the last kick of the game against local rivals Tottenham Hotspur and he in turn missed fixtures against Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and AFC Bournemouth.

With Mathieu Debuchy likely to miss six weeks of action through a hamstring problem, Arsene Wenger will want his star full-back to return as soon as possible, but he will have to make do without Bellerin for at least few more weeks.
