Arsenal began like a house on fire, destroying opponents who themselves had been in good form, as you would expect from a team that is pursuing the title and had won its last three games.

The only things stopping the Gunners from going up early were a few last-minute interventions, with heroic Bournemouth blocks denting Leandro Trossard twice.

Arsenal kept up their pressure to take the lead, but poor finishing proved to be their downfall once more. Declan Rice missed a fantastic opportunity to take the lead after Kai Havertz’s deft header looked to have set up an easy chance.

When the breakthrough finally materialised at the stroke of halftime, it was Kai Havertz who went down under slight contact from Travers, and Saka calmly finished off the ensuing penalty. Leandro Trossard, who scored from the edge of the penalty area after Declan Rice had worked hard to win the ball back, eased the stress.

Just moments later, Raya fumbled at a high ball under pressure from Solanke, giving Arsenal the lucky escape. In the final minute of injury time, Rice completed a brilliant team play to seal a man-of-the-match performance and score Arsenal’s third goal.

According to reports, Premier League clubs have approved the introduction of a development plan that will curb spending beginning with the 2025–2026 season.

The spending cap proposals were approved by 16 teams, and their goal is to keep the gap between the Premier League’s lower-half teams and its financial titans from growing.

Nevertheless, a report from BBC Sport claims that three teams vying for European football—Manchester United, Manchester City, and Aston Villa—are thought to have voted against the proposal.
