Arsenal have been so impressive as a side this year that even when removing top scorer Gabriel Martinelli's goals from their season, the Gunners would still sit atop the Premier League.
Despite Erling Haaland's dominance, Manchester City would also remain chasers in second place but the current eight-point gap would open to a chasm of 19 points without the great Dane.
