Arsenal and Manchester City continue in the Premier League
In recent years, Manchester City and Liverpool have been vying for the Premier League title. This season, this fight could oppose the Sky Blues to Arsenal. This Wednesday evening, as part of the fifth day of the Premier League, the Gunners have indeed chained a fifth success in a row, beating at home (2-1) Aston Villa, thanks to an opportunistic achievement by Gabriel Jesus ( 1-0, 30th) and a good recovery from Martinelli (2-1, 77th), following a cross from Bukayo Saka. Meanwhile, the Villans had equalized with a direct corner signed Douglas Luiz (1-1, 74th).
Two hat-tricks in four days for Haaland
Thanks to this new success, Arsenal retain the lead in the Premier League, two points ahead of Manchester City, who beat Nottingham Forest 6-0 at the Etihad. During this meeting, Erling Haaland scored a new hat-trick, four days after the one against Crystal Palace last Saturday (4-2). Here he is now with nine goals scored in his first five Premier League matches: this is a record, according to Opta. Similarly, no one had taken so little time to achieve two hat-tricks in this Championship.
At the same time, Tottenham conceded a draw at West Ham (1-1) on Wednesday despite an own goal from former Parisian Thilo Kehrer. The Spurs can consider themselves happy to keep their third place in the standings, as their performance was generally disappointing, like a feverish Hugo Lloris in his reminders. Note that during this meeting, Lucas Paqueta took his first steps in the Premier League. Finally, Liverpool miraculously beat Newcastle (2-1), thanks to a last-minute corner goal from Fabio Carvalho (90 + 8th). The late goal lifts the Reds from tenth to fifth in the standings.
