Arsenal Survive Tottenham Scare At Emirates
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette scored fight-back goals to help Arsenal play out a pulsating 2-2 draw with North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. It was an exciting moment in the Premier League as Arsenal roared back from 2-0 down at home.
A dominant 3-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor – a club-record 13th consecutive league victory saw Liverpool move back to the top of the Premier League table. Chris Wood was unfortunate to deflect Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross beyond his own goalkeeper in the 33rd minute and Sadio Mane doubled the lead soon after.
Chelsea were forced to another draw at home on Saturday after Sheffield United staged a spirited second-half fightback to pick up a deserved 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge. After falling behind to Tammy Abraham’s first-half double (19 and 43), the Blades responded with great confidence and character after the break.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinged his team’s 1-1 draw with Southampton on poor finishing as the Red Devils failed to win after three straight matches. Jannik Vestergaard’s powerful header gave 10-man Southampton a point after Daniel James had put Solskjaer’s charges in front at St Mary’s.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that Sadio Mane’s angry reaction to his substitution at Burnley wasn’t down to the fact that he had just been taken off. “Sadio Mane is an emotional guy, we are all individuals,” he told Sky Sports. “Something went not like he wanted, it is not the substitution. We will clarify it in the dressing room.”
