BBC Sport's Phil McNulty has been answering your questions on all things Premier League.

Scott asked: Hi Phil. Why were Arsenal’s celebration so over the top? Is it genuine or just part of the 'underdog' thing that Arteta wants to portray? Like everyone hates us, etc. I think it's a bit much and very easy to dislike him and Arsenal as a result.

Phil answered: Hello Scott. I didn’t think Arsenal’s celebrations were over the top, quite frankly.

It was a big win so why not celebrate it? Celebrations at the whistle are now part of football. We see it when Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp fist pumps in front of the Liverpool fans. I have no problem with it at all.

I don’t think it was an underdog or 'everyone hates us' thing. Arsenal had a huge win and celebrated. That’s it as far as I’m concerned.
