Arsenal is at the top of the Premier League, awaiting the summit

Arsenal temporarily topped the English Premier League, after a difficult victory over its guest Brentford (2-1) in Round 28, which took place on Saturday.

The London team opened the score early through a perfect header from midfielder Declan Rice in the 19th minute, but the visitors equalized in stoppage time of the first half after Yoann Wisa took advantage of a fatal mistake by Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

At the beginning of the half, Arsenal players pressed, hoping to score the winning goal, but without much danger, while Brentford relied on counter-attacks and almost scored on several occasions if it were not for Ramsdale’s skill.

Through a coordinated attack in the 86th minute, Kai Havertz was able to score the winning goal after taking advantage of a perfect cross from defender Ben White.

With this victory, Arsenal sits at the top of the standings with 64 points, one point ahead of Liverpool, which will face third-placed Manchester City on Sunday, in an exciting summit that could determine the identity of the champion.

In another match, Manchester United regained its balance and made up for losing the derby match against Manchester City (1-3) in the last round, after succeeding in defeating Everton with two clean goals.

Wolverhampton also beat its guest Fulham (2-1), and the match between Crystal Palace and Luton Town ended in a draw (1-1), as well as Bournemouth and Sheffield United (2-2).
