EPL: Table And Match Report After Saturday’s Games

In a commanding display at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal secured their 14th win in 16 Premier League matches, asserting their dominance with a 3-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth, as reported by Flashscore.

From the onset, Arsenal showcased their attacking prowess, peppering Bournemouth’s defense with 16 shots in the first half alone. Despite the Cherries’ resilient defense and goalkeeper Mark Travers’s heroics, denying attempts from the likes of Kai Havertz and Bukayo Saka, Arsenal’s relentless pressure eventually paid off. Just before halftime, a foul on Havertz inside the box led to a penalty, expertly converted by Saka, marking his 16th league goal of the season.

The second half saw Arsenal continuing their offensive onslaught, with Saka and Havertz coming close to extending the lead. Despite a brief resurgence from Bournemouth, highlighted by Dominic Solanke’s shot on target and Justin Kluivert’s near miss, Arsenal remained composed. A clinical finish from Leandro Trossard, set up by Thomas Partey and Declan Rice, doubled Arsenal’s advantage, despite Bournemouth’s protests over a disallowed goal.

Gabriel’s spectacular half-volley into the top corner was unfortunately ruled offside, denying Arsenal a sensational third goal. However, Rice sealed the victory in injury time with a precise strike, cementing Arsenal’s fourth consecutive victory over Bournemouth in head-to-head encounters.
