Thrilling finish as Arsenal edge Brentford 2-1!

Havertz rescues Arsenal with last-gasp winner!

A late headed goal by Kai Havertz secured a dramatic victory for Arsenal, propelling them to the top of the Premier League table.

Declan Rice gave the Gunners an early lead with a powerful header, but their dominance was shattered by a horrendous error from goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

In stoppage time of the first half, Ramsdale misjudged a backpass, leading to a comical own goal by Yoane Wissa for Brentford.

Arsenal responded with relentless pressure in the second half, desperate to reclaim the lead.

Their efforts finally paid off in the dying moments when a sublime team move, orchestrated by Martin Odegaard and Ben White, culminated in a perfect cross for Havertz to head home.

This was Havertz’s fourth goal in as many games, taking his season tally to nine.
