Arsenal shrugged off last weekend’s loss to Liverpool with a 2-0 win over Newcastle United, EPL’s bottom-placed club. Two goals in the first ten minutes of the second half did the trick, with Bukayo Saka breaking Newcastle’s resolve before Gabriel Martinelli, a substitute, sealed victory to move Arsenal to sixth place on the log with 23 points from 13 matches.

Steven Gerrard continued his winning start to life as Aston Villa coach as his side defeated Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park, while Norwich City and Wolverhampton Wanderers played out a goalless draw.

Liverpool scored three first half goals to record an easy 4-0 victory over Southampton in their English Premier League encounter at the Anfield Stadium on Saturday.

The Reds got off to an easy start on two minutes with Andy Robertson setting up Jota, and the Portuguese international finished with aplomb.

Diogo Jota scored twice with further goals from Thiago Alcantara and Virgil van Dijk ensuring Liverpool reduced Chelsea’s lead at the top to just one point.

Then Saturday’s Matchday fixtures ended as Brighton & Hove Albion extended their winless run in the Premier League to eight games when they were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Leeds United.
