Arsenal on course for PL title, Liverpool back to default as Chelsea remain 10th

Arsenal trashed London rivals, Fulham 3-0 to stay on course for their first Premier League title since 2004.

The Gunners scored three goals within the first 26 minutes, the first, an own goal from Antonee Robinson was ruled out but Gabriel Magalhaes and Gabriel Martinelli’s goals handed Arsenal a 2-0 lead going into the break.

Martin Odegaard scored the third in the second half, as Mikel Arteta secured his 100th win as Arsenal manager. Leandro Trossard assisted all three goals.

The league leaders also welcomed back their striker Gabriel Jesus.

Arsenal reclaim their 5-point lead having gone into the Fulham game on Sunday 2 points ahead of Manchester City who pipped Crystal Palace 1-0.

It looked for a mo like Liverpool have regained their mojo after putting together great results including a 7-0 thumping of Manchester United in their last three games.

But the Reds were put down by Bournemouth on Saturday at the Vitality Stadium as Jurgen Klopp’s men continue a season filled with inconsistent results.

Fresh from scoring the second-fastest goal in Premier League history with his strike against Arsenal, Nigerian-born Philip Billing scored the only goal as Bournemouth beat Liverpool 1-0.

Mo Salah had a chance to at least earn a point for Liverpool but he failed to convert the 70th-minute penalty awarded to his side.

Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz, and Mateo Kovacic scored the goals as Chelsea defeated Leicester City 3-1. Chelsea’s Mykhailo Mudryk also avoided the ‘Agent 007 tag’.

Despite the 3-1 victory, The Blues remained in the 10th position.
