Manchester United bounced back from their loss in the Champions League midweek with a 1-0 win over Luton Town, Everton secured a late victory with a score of 3-2 at Crystal Palace, and struggling Bournemouth surprised a depleted Newcastle United team with a 2-0 win in the late game.
Arsenal’s victory, with goals from Leandro Trossard, William Saliba, and Oleksandr Zinchenko, moved them above Spurs to second place in the table, level on 29 points with Manchester City, who still have a game in hand.
Josh Brownhill equalized for the visitors early in the second half, but Arsenal quickly regained the lead and secured the win, condemning Burnley to their sixth straight defeat.
Substitute Fabio Vieira was shown a straight red card, slightly souring Arsenal’s afternoon, but manager Mikel Arteta gave high marks to the referees after criticising them in the previous loss to Newcastle United.
“Please ask me about VAR, because today it was good… I hope that I’m on TV saying the referees are so good and I’m completely with them and being very constructive,” Arteta said.
Wolves staged a late turnaround to deny Tottenham the chance to return to the top of the Premier League. Pablo Sarabia and Mario Lemina scored in stoppage time to secure a 2-1 win for the hosts.
Inspired substitute Sarabia equalized in the 91st minute and then assisted the winning goal six minutes later. The result left Spurs in third place, with Wolves moving up to 11th.
“It is an amazing feeling, we’ve been pushing so hard. We deserve this game,” Lemina told TNT Sports.
Manchester United secured a 1-0 win over Luton with a goal from defender Victor Lindelof in the 59th minute. Erik ten Hag’s side moved into provisional sixth place and have now gained 12 points from their last five league matches.
“It is a good day,” Ten Hag said after his 50th game as United boss. “We needed the win and we got it, but we could have made it easier by scoring early on and getting a second goal.”
Ten Hag, however, will serve a suspension when his team travels to Everton on Nov. 26 after picking up his third yellow card of the season.
Idrissa Gueye scored four minutes from time to secure a thrilling win for Everton at Selhurst Park. Sean Dyche’s side were twice pegged back after taking the lead, but Gueye found the back of the net to seal Everton’s fourth away win in five matches in all competitions.
“A fighting performance without a doubt,” Dyche told Sky Sports. “I think we can play better than that, but the fight, determination, and mentality to win games is improving all the time.”
Vitalii Mykolenko and Abdoulaye Doucoure also scored for the Toffees, who moved up to 14th place.
“We’re finding ways to win, that’s a massive factor,” Dyche said. “We’re growing here.”
Two second-half goals by forward Dominic Solanke gave Bournemouth a well-deserved victory over Newcastle, lifting the Cherries to 17th place in the table, three points clear of the relegation zone. Newcastle are now in seventh place.
