Gunners beaten at last

By Razeen Gutta

Arsenal’s defeat to Newcastle United in controversial fashion highlighted a goal-filled Saturday in the Premier League.

A last-minute Bruno Fernandes winner lifted the spirits of Manchester United fans as the Red Devils kickstarted the weekend’s action with an away 1-0 win at Fulham. 

On the goal rush, the finishes came thick and fast with Manchester City thrashing Bournemouth 6-1 at the Etihad. 

The massive margin came without any goal involvement from star man Erling Haaland, who was withdrawn at halftime due to injury. 

Instead, with a goal and four assists at the age of 21, Jeremy Doku became the youngest player in Premier League history with five-goal involvements in a single game. 

The day ended with another 1-0 scoreline, as Anthony Gordon grabbed a second-half winner for Newcastle against the high-flying Gunners. 

It was the first time that Arsenal failed to score this season; with their concession a controversial one, too. 

The close-range finish required a five-minute stoppage before being given, with the game eventually decided by the barest of margins. 

In other results, Brentford beat West Ham 3-2, Crystal Palace won 2-0 at Burnley, Everton and Brighton drew 1-1 and Sheffield United won 2-1 at home to Wolves.
