A chunk of Premier League games were played on Saturday where Arsenal went on top of the table following their late kick off against Brentford.

Mikel Arteta’s side enjoyed the first opening and Leandro Trossard thought he had put them into the lead before the break only for his goal to be chopped off by VAR.

After the interval, Brentford grew in confidence with and had proper chances to take the lead only for substitute Havertz to deliver a breakthrough just a minute from the end of normal time by meeting Bukayo Saka’s cross to the far post.

Earlier in the day, A late equaliser from Trent Alexander-Arnold helped Liverpool to a 1-1 draw with Manchester City The deadlock was broken however, on 27 minutes, as Erling Haaland found space just outside the area and finished with aplomb. After some Liverpool pressure, it was City who could have doubled their advantage on 40 minutes as Foden cut in from the left but his low effort was brilliantly tipped around the post.

City thought they had doubled their lead on 68 minutes as Ruben Dias tapped in at the back post but his effort was ruled out after a push on Alisson. Against the run of play however, Liverpool got themselves level. Trent Alexander-Arnold scored his first goal of the season with 10 minutes to go as he fired in low from the edge of the area.
