Manchester United holds Liverpool as Arsenal takes top spot in Premier League

Liverpool’s perfect home record was spoiled as they were held to a 0-0 draw against Manchester United. Despite having 34 shots, the Reds were unable to find the back of the net in the Premier League match at Anfield. Trent Alexander-Arnold came close with a strike that curled just wide, and United goalkeeper Andre Onana made eight saves to keep his team in the game. Rasmus Hojlund had a one-on-one opportunity for United, but his shot went straight at Liverpool’s goalkeeper Alisson. The game ended with United playing with 10 men after Diogo Dalot was sent off for two yellow cards.

The 0-0 draw was only the fourth this season in the Premier League. With this result, Liverpool missed the opportunity to reclaim the top spot in the table, while United managed to keep a clean sheet in six consecutive competitions. Arsenal took advantage of Liverpool’s draw to return to the top of the table with a 2-0 victory over Brighton. Gabriel Jesus and Kai Havertz were the goal scorers for the Gunners in the second half.

Aston Villa also secured a 2-1 win over Brentford, extending their winning streak to three matches. Despite falling behind to a goal from Keane Lewis-Potter, Villa fought back after Ben Mee was sent off for a challenge on Leon Bailey following a VAR check. Villa equalized with a goal from Alex Moreno and secured the win with a goal from Ollie Watkins. The match ended with 10 players on each side after Boubacar Kamara was shown a red card for an incident with Yegor Yarmolyuk.

West Ham also had a successful outing, bouncing back from their previous defeat with a 3-0 win over Wolves at the London Stadium. Mohammed Kudus had a standout performance, scoring two goals to help secure the victory for the Hammers. He was assisted by Lucas Paqueta, who also set up a goal for Jarrod Bowen. The win provided a much-needed boost for West Ham after their disappointing result in the previous week.

In summary, Liverpool’s perfect home record was broken as they drew against Manchester United. Arsenal took advantage of the draw to return to the top of the table with a victory over Brighton, while Aston Villa secured a comeback win over Brentford. West Ham also bounced back with a convincing win over Wolves at the London Stadium.
