Arsenal sent out a title warning after Martin Odegaard’s double sent them five points clear at the top of the Premier League. The captain’s second-half brace earned a 2-0 win at Wolves and showed Manchester City their crown is under threat.

ARSENAL 5-0 NOTTINGHAM FOREST: REISS LIGHTNING HELPS FIRES THE GUNNERS BACK ON TOP

Arsenal returned to the top of the Premier League after an emphatic 5-0 win over Nottingham Forest, with a major contribution from an unexpected source. When Bukayo Saka had to come off in the first half because of injury, I was a little surprised to see Reiss Nelson get the nod. His last Premier League …

PSV 2-0 Arsenal: Gunners get what they deserve

If the dropped points in the Premier League against Southampton on Sunday were primarily down to not taking the good chances we had to win the game, the defeat against PSV last night was something entirely different.

Leeds 0-1 Arsenal: Saka’s superb finish delivers 3 points on a day of drama

Arsenal remain top of the league after taking three hard-earned points on an extraordinary afternoon at Elland Road. The game was barely a minute old when it was stopped.

ARSENAL 3-2 LIVERPOOL: MARTINELLI AND SAKA SHINE IN HUGE WIN

In Sunday’s preview I wrote about the Liverpool game being one which you use as a marker for progress. After what we saw at the Emirates yesterday, we can be confident that this Arsenal team is going places. There’s still a long way to go this season, you don’t win anything in October, but we …

MAN UTD 3-1 ARSENAL: ALL KINDS OF FRUSTRATIONS

Arsenal remain top of the Premier League, despite a frustrating day at Old Trafford yesterday. Mikel Arteta restored Oleksandr Zinchenko to the side in place of Kieran Tierney but other than that we were unchanged from Aston Villa. United started quite well in the opening ten minutes or so, but the game changed when Arsenal …
