Premier League: Arsenal Trapped In The Last Moments By Liverpool

Must Read

Arsenal, the current leader of the English league, was forced to share the spoils with Liverpool on Sunday (2-2).  After this 30th day of the Premier League, Arsenal remains in the lead with 6 points ahead of Manchester City, 2nd, but also with a game in hand, as the two teams will meet at the Etihad on April 26. The Reds, meanwhile, remain in eighth place with a game in hand and 12 points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.

However, less than ten minutes into the game, Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli found the net for the visitors (8th, 0-1). Shortly before the half-hour mark, the other Gabriel, Jesus this time, doubled the lead for the Gunners (28th, 0-2). Just before the break, Mohamed Salah reduced the gap (42nd, 1-2) and restored interest to this clash. The Egyptian had the opportunity to revive the debate but missed his penalty in the second half (52nd). The liberation for the Reds came from Roberto Firmino who placed a header between the goalkeeper and the crossbar to snatch a draw (87th, 2-2).

Manchester City, the two-time English champions, opened the scoring with a header from Håland (45th), who made a masterful acrobatic save for the double (68th). Grealish, who provided the assist for the third goal, made the breakthrough (58th), while Alvarez added the finishing touch with a penalty (74th) after Mara’s goal for honor (72nd).

Manchester United got the better of Everton (2-0) on Saturday. At the end of the game, the United manager Erik ten Hag lost Rashford to an injury. At the same time, Newcastle regained its third place by winning at Brentford (1-2).

Missed return for Frank Lampard. Appointed interim coach until the end of the season, the Englishman saw his Chelsea lose at Wolverhampton (1-0) on Saturday. On their side, Spurs resisted the shock against Brighton (2-1).
