Arsenal’s 2-1 win against Brentford propelled them to the top of the Premier League, extending their impressive winning streak to eight matches in 2024.

Arsenal had an opportunity to assert their claim for the Premier League crown as they faced Brentford, with main rivals Liverpool and Manchester City set to clash.

While they didn’t start as strongly as in their previous match against Sheffield United, Declan Rice’s goal from Ben White’s delivery gave them the lead. However, the first half-hour lacked significant goal-scoring chances.

Before halftime, a second goal seemed unlikely, but Arsenal had more promising opportunities, although their final passes were subpar.

However, just before halftime, Arsenal’s stand-in goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale, had his clearance blocked by Yoane Wissa, resulting in an embarrassing own goal. Ramsdale nearly faced another embarrassment after halftime when Ivan Toney’s long-range half-volley almost caught him off guard.

Despite a rare attack from Brentford, they relied on Vitaly Janelt’s desperate defending to keep the scores level, as he cleared Gabriel’s header off the line. Arsenal’s growing desperation was evident with Kai Havertz’s dive in the area.

However, Aaron Ramsdale made a stunning save to deny Nathan Collins’ header, keeping Arsenal in the game. The match became end-to-end, with Arsenal hitting the crossbar from Declan Rice’s long-range effort.

Towards the end of the game, Arsenal launched continuous attacks in search of a late winner under Mikel Arteta’s guidance. Their persistence paid off when Kai Havertz headed in another cross from Ben White, reminiscent of their earlier goal.

The atmosphere at the Emirates Stadium was electric as Havertz’s header found the net, with the Arsenal fans contributing to securing the victory.

This win propelled Arsenal to the top of the table, allowing them to watch tomorrow’s Liverpool versus City match with a sense of comfort.
