Arsenal’s Goal Spree Continues: Premier League Roundup

Arsenal maintained their formidable goal-scoring form by routing Burnley 5-0, keeping pace with Premier League leaders Liverpool, who clinched a 4-1 victory against Brentford.

Despite Liverpool extending their lead to five points with Mohamed Salah’s impactful return, Arsenal’s relentless attack propelled them to a convincing win over Burnley, following their recent 6-0 triumph against West Ham United.

Arsenal’s victory at Turf Moor solidified their position, with Liverpool leading at 57 points from 25 games, closely trailed by Arsenal at 55, and defending champions Manchester City in third place with 53 points from 24 matches.

Manager Mikel Arteta commended his team’s performance, stating, “At the moment all we can do is win our games and after our big two wins away from home we have a tough one in the Champions League at Porto.”


Arsenal’s dominance was evident as Martin Odegaard initiated the scoring in the fourth minute, setting the tone for a one-sided affair. Bukayo Saka’s brace, along with goals from Leandro Trossard and Kai Havertz, further emphasized Arsenal’s title aspirations.

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s triumph at Brentford showcased Salah’s impactful return from a hamstring injury, with Darwin Nunez, Alexis Mac Allister, and Salah himself contributing to the scoreline.

In another fixture, Manchester City salvaged a 1-1 draw against Chelsea, with Rodri’s late goal securing a point. Despite a disappointing first half, City showed resilience, extending their unbeaten streak to nine league games.

Reflecting on the match, City midfielder Bernardo Silva remarked, “Two different halves, first half was not good enough and very disappointing, the second half was a reaction from the team.”


Elsewhere, Aston Villa’s 2-1 victory against Fulham propelled them back into fourth place, while Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers saw them slip to fifth in the league standings.

In the relegation battle, Nottingham Forest secured a crucial 2-0 win over West Ham United, heaping more pressure on Hammers boss David Moyes, while Newcastle United settled for a 2-2 draw against Bournemouth.
