Man City beat Bournemouth 1-0, as Arsenal triumph over New Castle to stay in title contention


Manchester City secured a hard-fought 1-0 win against AFC Bournemouth in a closely contested match at Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

The decisive moment occurred in the 24th minute when Phil Foden capitalised on Erling Haaland’s bouncing shot, calmly converting from close range.

Foden’s goal marked his ninth of the season and 16th in all competitions, propelling Manchester City to the second spot in the Premier League standings, trailing leaders Liverpool by just one point.

Despite City’s early dominance, Bournemouth had opportunities and Ederson’s crucial saves, including one from a long-range strike by Ryan Christie just before half-time, kept the citizens on their toes.

Meanwhile, Arsenal displayed their championship credentials with a commanding 4-1 triumph over Newcastle United, securing their sixth consecutive Premier League win.

This victory was a response to the successes of title rivals Liverpool and Manchester City earlier in the week.

The Gunners initiated strongly, netting twice within the first 24 minutes, with Gabriel’s header saved but Livramento ensured the ball crossed the line before Karius could intervene.

The win further solidified Arsenal’s position, placing them two points behind the league leaders and boasting the best goal difference.

In a contrasting outcome, Manchester United faced disappointment at Old Trafford, succumbing to a 1-2 defeat against Fulham United.

On the other hand, Aston Villa solidified their fourth-place standing with a 4-2 victory over Nottingham Forest, featuring goals from Ollie Watkins, Douglas Luiz, and Leon Bailey.

Everton’s quest for their first win in nine Premier League matches was thwarted as Lewis Dunk’s stoppage-time equalizer secured a 1-1 draw for 10-man Brighton & Hove Albion.

The debut of Crystal Palace’s new manager, Oliver Glasner, was nothing short of spectacular as the Eagles enjoyed a comfortable 3-0 win against 10-man Burnley.
