Arsenal took the chance to open up a four-point lead at the top of the Premier League (PL) with a 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday and Newcastle beat Manchester United 1-0 to climb above them in the table.
Everton enjoyed their first win since being docked 10 points as they beat Nottingham Forest 1-0, while Burnley earned home points for the first time this season by hammering Sheffield United who ended the day rock bottom after a 5-0 thrashing.
“It’s been a good week with some good results. We’re there at the top and we have to keep improving and keep pushing,” Arsenal Skipper Martin Odegaard said. “The schedule is tough, but almost the whole season is tough.”
Anthony Gordon scored the only goal in Newcastle’s deserved 1-0 victory over Manchester United that propelled them up to fifth in the table on 26 points.
The Red Devils fell to seventh after a lackluster performance from the visitors until the final desperate minutes.
It marked the first time since January 1922 the Magpies have won three consecutive games in all competitions against Manchester United.
Newcastle’s victory capped a solid eight days that saw them beat Chelsea 4-1 and then draw 1-1 with Paris St Germain in the Champions League.
“I couldn’t be happier with the players tonight,” Manager Eddie Howe told TNT Sports. “The performances we put in against three top teams were brilliant so that will give confidence, and when we get some players back we can push on even further.”
