Arsenal, with William Saliba scoring, beat penultimate Burnley 3-1 on Saturday in London, a success which allows the Gunners to come back level with Manchester City before the leader's trip to Chelsea on Sunday at the end of the 12th day . The Gunners (27 points) are second on equal points with the Citizens and are one unit ahead of Tottenham, beaten 2-1 on Saturday at Wolverhampton.
At home, the Londoners dominated the promoted Burnley thanks to Leandro Trossard (45th 1), credited with the 1000th goal scored by Arsenal at the Emirates, William Saliba with a header from a corner (57th, 2-1) and Oleksandr Zinchenko from a nice recovery (74th). Portuguese midfielder Fabio Vieira, who entered on the hour mark, put Arsenal in difficulty by receiving a red card for a foul (83rd) but Mikel Arteta's team held on, a week after their first defeat of the season in the championship, at Newcastle.
Manchester United, for their part, scored a narrow victory against promoted Luton (1-0) thanks to their Swedish defender Victor Lindelöf (59th). This gives a little breathing room to Erik ten Hag and his players, stunned by their 4-3 setbacks on Wednesday in Copenhagen in the Champions League. The Red Devils have a second victory in a row in the Premier League, a week after winning 1-0 against Fulham in added time, and move up to sixth place (21 points) while awaiting, in particular, the trip of Newcastle (7th, 20 pts) in Bournemouth on Saturday at the end of the day.
Everton also continued to distance themselves from the relegation zone by winning 3-2 at Crystal Palace thanks to a winning goal from Idrissa Gueye. The Toffees are 14th with fourteen points, eight more than first relegated Bournemouth.
