Arsenal reclaim top spot

Arsenal returned to the summit of the Premier League table following an impressive victory against Brentford.

The Gunners started the game full of energy and their efforts were rewarded in the 17th minute, when Saliba guided Saka’s corner home. Gabriel Jesus added the second after a beautiful chipped pass from Granit Xhaka in 28th minute.

Arsenal could not have hoped for a better start to the second half when Fabio Veira, in his first ever Premier League start, unleashed a powerful left-footed strike from almost 30 yards past David Raya, after being fed by Saka.

The win puts the Gunners back in first place heading into the International break.
