LONDON, England (AP) -- Arsenal kept up the pace in the race for the Premier League title with a 1-0 away win over archrival Tottenham on Sunday.

The Gunners took the lead inside two minutes when midfielder Tomas Rosicky rifled in an unstoppable shot from the edge of the area.

Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain should have doubled the visitors lead in the 15th when he raced clear on goal, but his attempted lob sailed well wide of goal.

Tottenham started the second half with real purpose and should have equalized in the 46th through Nacer Chadli. However, he failed to convert from close range after goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny fumbled the ball in the area.

That win lifts the Gunners into third place on 62 points, four adrift of league leaders Chelsea, which it faces next Saturday.
