Ozil and Ramsey react on Twitter to Arsenal win over Bournemouth

Arsenal stars are happy being top of the league.

Having missed an opportunity on Boxing Day, Arsenal are now top of the Premier League.

Their stay there may only last 24 hours because Leicester City are due to play on Tuesday, but the victory was an important one for Arsene Wenger's side.

Two days earlier they had been torn apart by Southampton, losing 4-0 at St Mary's when they had been expected to run riot.

Against another south coast team, Bournemouth, there were no similar slip ups, winning comfortably.

Star players Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil both commented on Twitter after the game, paying tribute to goalkeeper Petr Cech who recorded his 170th Premier League clean sheet.

League leaders Leicester City host Manchester City on Tuesday evening, a huge game for both sides, with the Foxes aiming to avoid losing two in a row, having suffered defeat to Liverpool on Boxing Day.

A win for City would leave both sides behind the Gunners heading into the New Year, meaning Arsene Wenger's side can end 2015 as they aim to finish this current season.
