With four minutes remaining, Kai Havertz gave Arsenal a 2-1 victory over Brentford; however, this came about only after the forward had escaped a second yellow card for simulation earlier in the half.

After Havertz was called for a foul in the first forty-five minutes, the referee decided not to book him when he dove under Nathan Collins’ challenge in the second half.

Then, with 86 minutes remaining, the forward for Arsenal headed home a cross from Ben White to give his team the victory and move them to the top of the Premier League.
Mikel Arteta made two changes to his Arsenal team: Leandro Trossard replaced Gabriel Martinelli, who was unable to play against his parent club, and David Raya was substituted by Ramsdale.

In the first few minutes, the hosts had the majority of the ball possession. Bukayo Saka was often the one receiving the ball and trying to go to the byline to cross.


On the tenth minute, Wissa was hauled back by Gabriel on the edge of the area, giving Brentford their first opportunity. Although Keane Lewis-Potter’s delivery to the back post appeared to be good, nobody was able to capitalize on it.

Soon after, the Bees had another set-piece, a corner this time, but the north Londoners nearly cut an opening out of it. Following a header by Christian Nørgaard that found its way right into Ramsdale’s arms, the goalkeeper immediately launched a counterattack by putting a long ball through to Trossard. The Belgian appeared to have a goal, but Mads Roerslev’s prompt and astute defense ultimately resulted in a goal kick for his team.

However, Rice gave the Gunners the lead just 19 minutes later. The first goal was headed home by the England international who climbed highest inside the penalty area after a deep pass from Ben White curled into the box.

Ten minutes before halftime, Havertz had a fantastic opportunity to double Arsenal’s lead. Rice fed the forward a pass over the top, and he beat the offside trap to go one on one with Flekken. He attempted to elevate the ball over the Bees goalie, but it narrowly missed the far post.

And the last blow of the first half was dealt by Brentford. Wissa pursued what seemed to be a losing cause as Gabriel rolled a throw back to Ramsdale. When Wissa attempted to clear the ball while the keeper was in possession within the six-yard box, the ball deflected off him and into the back of the net. For more trending news click..
