The match saw Havertz play a pivotal role as he netted a late winner, clinching the three points for the Gunners in dramatic fashion.

The game opened with Rice giving Arsenal the lead with a powerful header past Flekken, setting the tone for an intense encounter. Despite Wissa’s equalizer just before halftime due to Ramsdale’s unfortunate error, the Gunners maintained their composure and mounted a relentless offensive onslaught throughout the match.

Ramsdale redeemed himself with crucial saves to deny Toney and Collins, keeping Arsenal in contention. Rice’s near-miss off the woodwork added to the thrilling narrative of the match, showcasing the fine margins that separated the two sides. Havertz sealed the victory in the 86th minute with a close-range header, solidifying Arsenal’s ascent to the summit of the league standings.

With this crucial win, Arsenal leapfrogged Liverpool into the top spot, setting the stage for a fierce title race in the remaining matches of the season. As Arteta’s team basks in the glory of their victory, the focus now shifts to their upcoming UEFA Champions League clash against Porto in the Round of 16 second leg at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday, 12th March 2024.

Meanwhile, Brentford finds themselves in 15th place, five points clear of the relegation zone, as they prepare to face Burnley in their next Premier League fixture. The Gunners’ triumph over Brentford marks a significant milestone in their pursuit of silverware this season, signaling their intent to compete at the highest levels both domestically and in Europe.

I am a very stubborn person who is always very argumentative in football discussions but I always win. I like writing about transfer news most.
