In a thrilling match at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal secured a 3-1 victory over 10-player Liverpool, bringing them within two points of the Premier League leaders and significantly intensifying the title race.
Despite the hosts dominating much of the contest, a defensive mix-up just before halftime allowed Gabriel Magalhaes to inadvertently score an own goal, nullifying Bukayo Saka’s early opener.
Persisting in their offensive efforts, Arsenal reclaimed the lead as Gabriel Martinelli capitalized on Liverpool’s goalkeeper, Alisson Becker, charging off his line and failing to clear a long ball, resulting in an empty-net goal. Liverpool, previously unbeaten in 15 Premier League games, faced further setback when Ibrahima Konate received a red card. Substitute Leandro Trossard then sealed the victory for the Gunners, racing down the left and slotting the ball through Alisson’s legs from a tight angle.
This triumph propelled Arsenal back into the second spot, surpassing Manchester City, with Liverpool experiencing their first Premier League defeat since September.
