Emiliano Martinez was the master of Aston Villa’s downfall against his former club as Arsenal came from behind twice and scored two late goals to defeat Unai Emery’s side 4-2 to rise back to the top of the Premier League table. Ollie Watkins and Philippe Coutinho twice put Villa ahead in the first half either side of Bukayo Saka’s response, but Oleksandr Zinchenko restored parity for the Gunners before a chaotic period of injury time. Martinez’s highly unfortunate own goal would seemingly settle the contest, but there was time for Gabriel Martinelli to net into an open goal just before the full-time whistle as Arsenal demoted Manchester City back down to second place.

Manchester City handed Arsenal the initiative in the Premier League title race as they were pegged back in a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground. A plethora of missed chances plagued the champions, who went ahead in the first half through Bernardo Silva, but Chris Wood scored a late leveller for the Tricky Trees to keep City behind Arsenal in the Premier League table. It came as little surprise to see the champions dominating exchanges from the off and pinning Forest back, but clear-cut chances were few and far between in the first 20 minutes, as Erling Braut Haaland was starved of service again.

Newcastle 0-2 Liverpool

Liverpool have closed the gap between themselves and the Premier League top four to just six points after a 2-0 win at Newcastle United this evening. Two goals inside the opening 17 minutes were enough for Jurgen Klopp’s side, as they comfortably held on against a Newcastle side that played with 10 men for three quarters of the match. Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo were among the goals for the visitors as the Magpies had goalkeeper Nick Pope sent off for handling outside the area. Eddie Howe’s men remain fourth for now, but could drop out of the Champions League places if Tottenham Hotspur win tomorrow.
