Arsenal 3-1 Liverpool: Trossard Seals Late Win

The Premier League title race got even spicier as Arsenal upset table-toppers Liverpool 3-1 at the Emirates, closing the gap to just two points.

In a thrilling match, the Gunners took an early lead through Saka but were pegged back by a Gabriel own goal before halftime.

However, a defensive error by Liverpool gifted Martinelli the chance to restore the lead in the 67th minute.

Substitute Trossard then sealed the victory in stoppage time, sending the Emirates crowd into ecstasy.

Despite lacking their usual spark, Arsenal deserved the win, controlling much of the game.

Liverpool’s frustrations grew as the clock ticked down, culminating in Konate’s red card for a second yellow.

This win propels Arsenal into second place with 49 points, just behind Liverpool’s 51. 

However, the race is far from over, with defending champions Manchester City lurking just 3 points behind with a game in hand.

This result throws the title race wide open, setting the stage for an exciting second half of the season.

Can Arsenal maintain their momentum and challenge for their first championship since 2004? Can Liverpool bounce back and regain their lead? Or will Manchester City emerge as the dark horse in the race for the trophy? 

Only time will tell.
