Arsenal extended its lead to five points over Man City, now in the second position, following a 2-0 victory away at Wolves. The 0-1 loss to Newcastle was Chelsea's third straight loss.
According to Vn88, Arsenal was spurred into action by Man City's loss to Brentford in the Premier League's opening match of the 16th round, and Arteta's army finished the job by beating Wolves 3-0.
After the opening whistle, Arsenal completely dominated the home team. Jesus scored for the home team in the fifth minute, but it was ruled off due to offside. In the first half, neither team was able to get a shot on goal due to inefficient attacking.
In the 55th minute, the game was decided when Arsenal's players mounted a brilliant attack and Vieira reached out to set up Odegaard for a close-range shot that he converted.
Arsenal's players were able to breathe a sigh of relief after scoring and then continue to dominate play after the goal. Odegaard doubled the lead in the 75th minute when he took possession of the ball inside the penalty area and promptly scored on a fast effort.
Arsenal won 2-0 thanks to a pair of goals from Odegaard. The score for the "Gunners" increased to 37, five points ahead of Man City.
After losing against Newcastle in the Premier League's round of 16, Chelsea's predicament deepened. According to Vn88.cx, this was the third straight loss for the Potter school, sending their pupils and faculty to the lower half of the rankings.
Newcastle performed very well, and while their ball possession was about even with their opponent, their "Chicken" attack was significantly more effective. After 67 minutes, a difference in the score was visible. Willock took advantage of Mendy's hesitation as Almiron dribbled too much upfield and scored with a fast effort into the upper right corner.
After 14 games, Newcastle has 30 points, just two behind Man City for the league lead. Newcastle's recent stellar play has ensured the club's place in the top four and given it championship contention. In their current "Shoot," they are currently seven points behind league leaders Arsenal.
Chelsea is currently eighth in the Premier League after a dreadful three-game losing streak. With an eight-point deficit to fourth-place Tottenham, the Blues have little shot at winning the title fight.
When striker Erling Haaland "did," Man City was stunned by a 1-2 loss to Brentford at the Etihad Stadium in the 15th round of the Premier League.
Haaland returned to the starting lineup for Man City as they welcomed Brentford, and they immediately unleashed their most potent force, with Foden, Bernardo Silva, Gundogan, Rodri, and De Bruyne in the middle.
After a strong pregame, Brentford came out swinging and surprised the odds by scoring first against Man City. After only four minutes, Onyeka had already put Ederson in a tough position to make a save from close range.
Toney then had an opportunity to score for Man City two minutes later, but Ederson made another great save. After regaining control of the game, Man City were suddenly undone by an unexpected goal just as things were looking up.
Toney hit Man City in the 16th minute with a well-placed shot that sailed over Ederson's head. Once they took the lead, Brentford proceeded to drop back defensively in anticipation of a counterattack.
In the 45th minute, Man City sought to press the field, and after a corner on the right, Foden volleyed the ball with his left foot, but it went wide into the net of Brentford. After a tense first half, the "green" Man was able to relax thanks to this goal.
The second half saw Man City's assault unit put to work. In the 66th minute, after receiving a ball from Haaland inside the penalty area, Gundogan unleashed an amazing shot high into the air. Because of this, Man City's play became quiet even after this.
Erling Haaland, upon his comeback to the first squad, reportedly played poorly since he was unable to get any shots on goal, as reported by Vn88.cx. Man City paid the price at the end of the game for their numerous attacks that went unanswered.
When the clock reached the eighth minute of added time, Brentford sprung into action with a swift counterattack. Toney's deft footwork finished off a feed from Dasilva to give Brentford a 2-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium.
After a devastating loss to Brentford, Vn88 said that Man City had blown their chance to overtake Arsenal in the Premier League. They are now in second place, trailing Arsenal by only two points with 32 total. If Arsenal wins tonight against the Wolves, the lead can increase to five points.
