Arsenal 5-0 Chelsea

Arsenal delivered a humiliating thrashing to Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium, keeping their title hopes alive and kicking.

Chelsea, previously on an eight-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League, couldn’t rely on their key player, Cole Palmer, and were completely dominated by their London rivals.

Arsenal opened the scoring just 4 minutes in. Rice surged through the middle, entered the box, and passed to Trossard on the left. The Belgian controlled the ball, struck it powerfully with his left foot, finding the bottom corner past Petrović.

At the 18th minute, Mudryk’s corner was flicked on by Badiashile at the near post, and Disasi was there to finish from close range, although he didn’t strike it cleanly, sending it wide.

By the 21st minute, Trossard fed Rice, who beautifully dribbled past Enzo Fernández and struck a well-placed shot with danger.

At 23 minutes, Jackson sprinted down the left flank and attempted a cross. The ball deflected off Gabriel Magalhães and hit the post, resulting in a corner.

At the 25th minute, Ben White intercepted Gallagher’s pass and played it to Havertz inside the box. The German had plenty of space, aimed for the corner, but Petrović made the save. The rebound fell to Saka, who passed to Trossard, his shot deflected off Disasi, and Petrović pulled off another reflex save.

Despite a balanced first half with chances for both sides, the second half was all about the Gunners.

Just 3 minutes into the second half, Ødegaard initiated a counter and passed to Rice in the box. The midfielder shot across goal, but Petrović made the save.

At 5 minutes, Ødegaard delivered a brilliant through ball to Havertz, who found himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper, yet Petrović denied him once again.

At 6 minutes, Arsenal took a short corner, Saka and Ødegaard exchanged passes, and Rice fired from outside the box. The ball deflected off Gallagher and fell kindly to White, who scored the second goal for the hosts.

At 11 minutes, Ødegaard provided a perfect through ball to Havertz, who calmly lifted it over Petrović, marking Arsenal’s third goal.

At 20 minutes, Saka showcased individual skill down the right and played it to Havertz inside the box. The German placed it past Petrović, scoring his second against his former club.

Arsenal sealed the deal at 25 minutes, perhaps with a stunning goal from Ben White, as it’s uncertain whether he intended to cross or shoot. Ødegaard launched it to the right side of the box, White volleyed first-time, and the ball soared into the top corner.

At 45 minutes, Chelsea’s defensive error led to Martinelli’s dangerous shot from inside the box.

At 51 minutes, Zinchenko delivered a beautiful pass to Martinelli, who found himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper but squandered the opportunity.

With this victory, Arsenal tops the Premier League with 77 points, while Manchester City trails with 76 points, albeit with one game in hand.

Brighton 0-4 Manchester City

Manchester City thrashed Brighton, staying close behind leaders Arsenal with one game and one point less.

At the 16th minute, Foden passed to Walker on the flank, and the full-back delivered a perfect cross to De Bruyne. The Belgian headed it into the top corner, opening the scoring for City.

By the 18th minute, Lewis Dunk rose high and headed after a corner. Ederson calmly saved it.

At the 19th minute, City executed a swift counter; Kovačić passed to Álvarez, who entered the box and struck dangerously across goal.

At 25 minutes, Foden took a free-kick from outside the box, which deflected off Groß, deceiving Steele and doubling City’s lead.

At 33 minutes, Brighton made a terrible mistake in their build-up; Foden struck it well and scored his second of the match.

Seeking to retaliate, De Zerbi made two changes for the second half, and the team improved, pressing City more.

At 16 minutes, Ederson delivered a beautiful long pass to Walker, who dribbled past Barco inside the box and collided with goalkeeper Steele. The ball fell kindly for Álvarez to tap it into the net.

At 18 minutes, Barco provided a good pass to Welbeck, who quickly passed it to Adingra. The striker entered the box but delayed his shot, allowing Gvardiol to make the tackle.

At 30 minutes, Welbeck showcased individual skill and struck with his left foot from outside the box, narrowly missing the target.

At 40 minutes, João Pedro combined with Igor Julio and found himself one-on-one with Ederson but missed the target.

At 48 minutes, Álvarez passed to Doku inside the box. The Belgian struck well, but Steele made a great save with his feet.

With this win, City draws closer to Arsenal’s lead with one game in hand, extending their undefeated streak to 30 matches in all competitions.

Everton 2-0 Liverpool

Liverpool suffered a defeat against Everton in the city derby, drifting further away from the Premier League title.

The Reds were heavy favorites to win the derby but faced an inspired performance from Pickford, as Everton secured a victory at Goodison Park for the first time in 14 years.

At 5 minutes, Harrison played a beautiful trivela pass, Calvert-Lewin outpaced Alisson and was fouled. The referee initially awarded a penalty and showed a yellow card to the Brazilian goalkeeper. However, after VAR review, the penalty was overturned as the Everton forward was in an offside position.

At 9 minutes, Arnold launched Salah into the box, who flicked it towards the middle. Godfrey arrived timely to make a crucial clearance, denying Liverpool’s goal.

Everton opened the scoring at the 26th minute, in a bizarre goal. After a scramble in the box, Mac Allister attempted to clear, but Konaté intercepted, and Tarkowski found the net with his shot, deflecting off Alisson’s leg and the post before crossing the line.

At 35 minutes, Mac Allister set up Salah, who with a first-time touch, set Darwin Nuñez through on goal. The Uruguayan struck powerfully, but Pickford made the save with his knee.

At 43 minutes, Salah headed it to Nuñez, who also headed it back to Luis Díaz, who struck with his right foot, but Pickford made another great save.

In the 56th minute, McNeil unleashed a powerful shot from outside the box, and Alisson tipped it over for a corner. From the resulting set-piece, McNeil delivered, and Calvert-Lewin rose unmarked to head it into the net, doubling Everton’s lead.

At 89 minutes, Elliott got the rebound from a corner and struck with the instep. Pickford stretched to tip it over for another corner.

At 95 minutes, Luis Díaz laid it off, and Salah struck first-time. Pickford dove to the corner and secured Everton’s 2-0 victory.

Everton’s win virtually eliminates Liverpool from the title race and pushes them further away from the relegation zone.

The last time Everton defeated Liverpool at Goodison Park was in 2010, with the same scoreline, featuring goals from Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta. Today’s victory is so significant that Everton hadn’t scored against Klopp’s side since December 2021, in a 4-1 defeat.
