MANCHESTER, England -- Arsenal and Manchester City showed no sign of slowing up in the race for the Premier League title by grabbing routine home wins on Saturday to stay 1-2 in the standings. Dan Feeney Jersey . Spain playmaker Santi Cazorla scored second-half goals in a five-minute span for Arsenal in a 2-0 victory over lowly Fulham that keeps the Gunners in the lead by a point. "We have played 22 games and have 51 points. If you compare that to any other season you will see that it is one of the best, if not the best ever," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said after his sides fifth straight league win. "So lets just continue." City put on another attacking clinic to breeze past Cardiff 4-2 and pass the 100-goal mark this season in all competitions -- after just 34 matches. Edin Dzeko, Jesus Navas, Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero netted for City, which has now scored four or more goals in a game on 12 occasions this campaign. "Its not easy to score 103 goals by the middle of the season," City manager Manuel Pellegrini said. "It reflects how we think this team must play. We are always an attractive team." The Chelsea side of last season had been the previous fastest to reach a century of goals in the Premier League era, after 42 games, but Pellegrinis entertainers have set a high bar. The defeat dumped Cardiff into last place and ensured a miserable return to Manchester for its coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who spent 11 successful years across the city at United. Third-place Chelsea will look to stay a point behind City by beating Manchester United at home on Sunday in the standout game of the weekend. Liverpool lost ground in fourth by drawing 2-2 at home to Aston Villa, which raced into a two-goal lead after 36 minutes thanks to strikes by Andreas Weimann and Christian Benteke. Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard -- from the penalty spot -- salvaged a draw for Liverpool, which is now eight points behind Arsenal after spending Christmas Day on top of the table. The scrap for survival is even tighter than the battle for first place, with three teams now locked on 18 points in the relegation zone. Crystal Palace started the day in last place but Jason Puncheon made up for his awful penalty miss against Tottenham last week by converting from the spot against Stoke, sealing a 1-0 win. Sunderland remains second from bottom after coming from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Southampton and West Ham makes up the bottom three following a 3-1 loss to Newcastle, for whom France midfielder Yohan Cabaye scored twice while compatriot Loic Remy netted the other. Norwich climbed five points clear of the drop zone thanks to a 1-0 win over Hull, secured by Ryan Bennetts 87th-minute goal. Although Arsenal is maintaining the remarkable consistency it enjoyed in 2013, it will be difficult to stop City on current form. Solskjaer was part of a string of wonderfully attacking teams during his time at Old Trafford, but none of them were as rampant as Citys class of 2013-14. Edin Dzeko brought up Citys century of goals with a scruffy opener that dribbled just over the line in the 14th minute at Etihad Stadium, with the validity of the strike confirmed by the Goal Decision System on the giant screens in the corner of the ground. Craig Noone equalized for Cardiff in the 29th minute but Jesus Navas restored Citys lead three minutes later and second-half goals by Yaya Toure and substitute Sergio Aguero kept up the teams 100 per cent home record in the league. "We are playing fantastic football at the moment," Pellegrini said. "We play with fantastic intensity and that is how we must continue. The best way to play is the way we are playing now." With Theo Walcott out for the rest of the season with a knee problem and Aaron Ramsey still not fully recovered from injury, it was Cazorlas turn to chip in with goals from midfield to ease the burden on chief striker Olivier Giroud. Cazorla delivered instinctive finishes in the 57th and 62nd minutes, the first to complete a flowing move and the second after latching onto a clearance to break down the stubborn resistance of a Fulham side that arrived at Emirates Stadium with the leagues leakiest defence. "He is one of the players who can create something special, either through his pass or through his finishing," Wenger said of Cazorla. Forrest Lamp Youth Jersey . Pressley missed all of last season with Cincinnati because of a knee injury, but the 5-foot-10, 249-pounder had been expected to fill a need on Clevelands roster. Mike Williams Youth Jersey . The Eastern Conference-leading Celtics finished their recent trek at 3-1 on Monday in Salt Lake City when Rajon Rondo made a key jumper with 24.1 seconds remaining, as Boston held off the Utah Jazz, 107-102, at EnergySolutions Arena. http://www.prochargersteamstore.com/Youth-Rayshawn-Jenkins-Elite-Jersey/ .com) - The Milwaukee Bucks will try to get another win on this homestand Thursday night when they welcome the Utah Jazz to the Bradley Center.(SportsNetwork.com) - John Tortorella failed to lead the Vancouver Canucks to the playoffs in 2013-14, one big reason why his tenure as the clubs head coach lasted only one season. Tortorella also failed to beat former Canucks and current New York Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault in two meetings a season ago. New Vancouver bench boss Willie Desjardins hopes for better luck on Saturday night when his club plays host to the Rangers. Vigneault led the Canucks to 30-or-more wins in six straight seasons before the lockout-shortened campaign ended that streak in 2013. He also got Vancouver to within one win of the franchises first Stanley Cup title in the spring of 2011, only to lose a home Game 7 to the Bruins. Vancouver still made the playoffs under Vigneault in 2013, but was swept out of the first round and the early exit cost the coach his job. The Canucks opted to replace him with Tortorella after he had been let go by the Rangers, but Vancouver missed the playoffs and Tortorellas style seemed to clash with many on the Canucks roster. Vigneault, meanwhile, saw his Rangers beat the Canucks twice last regular season, extending their series winning streak to four straight, and New York reached the Stanley Cup Finals, where it lost in five games to the Los Angeles Kings. While New York sits fourth in the Metropolitan Division, three points behind third-place Washington, Vancouver is behind only Anaheim in the Pacific Division and is clicking under Desjardins, who was hired to replace Tortorella on June 23. Desjardins will look for his club to pick up the pace in the start of a four- game homestand as the Canucks return to Vancouver following a 3-3-1 road trip. Mike Williams Jersey. . They lost the final three games of the trek, including Tuesdays 3-1 decision in Montreal. Ryan Miller stopped 22 shots in the loss and Derek Dorsetts second-period short-handed goal was the lone offense for the Canucks. It was the clubs fourth short-handed tally of the season. Its not an excuse. You have to play at another level when youre on a long road trip as we are, Miller said. We were definitely playing like were at the end, but we competed hard. Im just sorry we couldnt stretch it into overtime, but thats the way it goes. The Rangers come in rested as well, having been out of action since a 4-3 victory at home over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday. It was an eventful game for Blueshirts defenseman Kevin Klein, who netted the winning goal with 1:15 to go in overtime, putting him a shot from the high slot and through a screen. I just tried to shoot it far side and it managed to go in. Im happy for that one, said Klein, who has three game-winning goals among his career-high six tallies this season. Earlier in the game, Klein suffered a cut to his left ear on a high stick from Penguins forward Zach Sill and had to get 13 stitches to re-attach the upper part of his ear. J.T. Miller, Kevin Hayes and Rick Nash all scored for the Rangers, who snapped a two-game slide ahead of tonights opener of a four-game road trip. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 32 shots in the win. Forward Chris Kreider did not play on Monday due to a neck injury.
