Arsenal, Man City secure emphatic wins to leave premiership title race open. See other results


Manchester City faced renewed pressure after Arsenal secured a 3-0 victory against AFC Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Mikel Arteta’s team had briefly held a four-point lead over Manchester City before Erling Haaland’s impressive four-goal performance ensured Manchester City’s continued dominance with a 5-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

This prompted Pep Guardiola’s side to respond emphatically to Arsenal’s win.

Manchester City plays their match in two games before Arsenal’s next fixture, giving city a chance to lead the chart once again if they beat Fulham on May 5, 2024.

Meanwhile, Bukayo Saka opened the scoring from the penalty spot just before halftime, rewarding Arsenal for their first-half dominance as they amassed 16 shots in the opening period alone.

Leandro Trossard and Declan Rice sealed the victory with late goals, leaving Bournemouth in 10th place after a disallowed Antoine Semenyo goal in the closing stages.

Burnley suffered a significant setback in their bid for survival as they were thrashed 4-1 by a dominant Newcastle United at Turf Moor.

Despite being unbeaten in their previous three Premier League matches, Burnley had hoped to climb above Luton Town who drew with Everton on Friday into 18th place.

However, their hopes were dashed as Newcastle raced to a three-goal lead by halftime, with goals from Callum Wilson, Sean Longstaff, and Bruno Guimaraes.

Although Alexander Isak scored his 20th league goal of the season early in the second half, Burnley’s hopes were further dimmed.

Burnley, who face Tottenham Hotspur and Nottingham Forest in their final two matches, now sit two points behind 18th-placed Luton and three points adrift of 17th-placed Forest, leaving manager Vincent Kompany visibly disheartened on the sidelines.

Fulham and Brentford played out a goalless draw in a wasteful Premier League encounter at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Raul Jimenez missed a clear chance late in the game as Fulham and Brentford extended their winless runs, with Brentford failing to secure victory in two games and Fulham enduring a winless streak of three matches.

Despite Bryan Mbeumo’s effort hitting the crossbar in the first half, Brentford remains in 16th place with their Premier League status secured, while Fulham occupies the 12th position.
