Arsenal defeats Brighton to reclaim top spot in Premier League

Arsenal secured an impressive 3-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion with goals from Bukayo Saka, Kai Havertz, and Leandro Trossard, reclaiming the top spot in the Premier League table. Brighton, previously unbeaten in 12 league matches, were unable to match Arsenal’s prowess on the field.

The Gunners dominated from the start, with Saka converting a penalty after Gabriel Jesus was fouled. Havertz doubled the advantage in the second half with a goal from Jorginho’s cross, while Trossard sealed the victory with a breakaway third goal.

Despite Brighton’s efforts to level the playing field, Arsenal continued to press on and create opportunities. Gabriel missed an early chance, but Arsenal’s persistent probing paid off as they broke the deadlock just after the half-hour mark.

While Brighton’s goalkeeper, David Raya, put up a strong defense, Arsenal’s attacks proved to be too much to handle. Jorginho’s assist set up Havertz for the second goal, and Trossard’s clinical finish in the 86th minute further solidified Arsenal’s lead.

With this win, Arsenal continues its impressive run in the Premier League, showcasing their talent and determination on the field. The Gunners’ commanding performance against Brighton highlights their current status as a top contender in the league.
