Arsenal Secures Top Spot with Dominant 3-0 Win Over Brighton

Bukayo Saka opened the scoring with a penalty just before halftime, easing tension at the Emirates Stadium. Leandro Trossard added a second on 70 minutes, and Declan Rice sealed the victory deep into stoppage time.

The win propelled Arsenal to 83 points from 36 games, while Manchester City, with 79 points from 34 games, faced Wolverhampton Wanderers later on Saturday.

Bournemouth had reasons to feel hard done by, with Arsenal’s penalty decision confirmed after a lengthy VAR review. Bournemouth also had a goal disallowed in the second half following another VAR check.

Gabriel had a goal ruled out for Arsenal, but Rice’s late strike secured a crucial win, keeping Mikel Arteta’s team firmly in contention for their first Premier League title in 20 years.

With City playing later, Arsenal capitalized on the opportunity to increase the pressure, dominating possession against a resilient Bournemouth side that defended with ten men behind the ball for much of the first half.

Trossard and Odegaard were denied by Bournemouth’s determined defending, while Solanke threatened for Bournemouth, but Saliba’s tackle saved Arsenal from conceding.

Arsenal broke the deadlock just before halftime through a controversial penalty. Havertz went past Bournemouth’s goalkeeper, Mark Travers, before going down, leading to a VAR-reviewed penalty that Saka converted calmly.

Bournemouth showed more attacking intent in the second half, but Arsenal’s solid defense and a clinical finish from Trossard extended Arsenal’s lead.

Despite a late scare when Solanke’s effort was disallowed, Arsenal secured a vital victory. Their focus now shifts to upcoming matches against Manchester United and Everton, hoping for a slip-up from City in the title race.
