Arsenal Return To Top Of Premier League, Defeat Brentford 3-0


Arsenal on Sunday returned to the top of the English Premier League as Fabio Vieira’s first goal for the club helped the Gunners secure a 3-0 win over Brentford.

Vieira, making his first Premier League start in the absence of the injured Martin Odegaard, rifled a stunning effort in off the post from 25 yards out (49) to cap a commanding victory for Mikel Arteta’s men.

Earlier, the impressive William Saliba had opened the scoring with a flicked, near-post header from Bukayo Saka’s corner in the 17th minute before Gabriel Jesus doubled Arsenal’s advantage with a similarly well-taken header from Granit Xhaka’s diagonal cross in the 28th minute.

The Gunners’ last visit to the Gtech Community Stadium ended in a dismal 2-0 defeat on the opening day of last season but on this occasion, they were totally dominant, the victory underlining their recent improvement and sending them a point clear of Manchester City and Tottenham at the top of the Premier League table.
