Arsenal continued their fantastic run in the Premier League as 10-Man United settled for an 0-0 draw. These games were played as the second installment of EPL GW 27 and you can catch all the news on the games that were played on the 11th March of below. Let's get into it.
Arsenal Continue their Fantastic Run in the Premier League
Arsenal continued their fantastic run in the EPL with a 3-o win against Fulham. The gunners were out in full swing and were playing top-tier football. We were even wondering whether it was Man City's players in Arsenal's jerseys playing the game.
100th Arsenal Win for Mikel Arteta
Arsenal's win against Fulham was their 100th win of the Mikel Arteta era and is a fantastic underlining of just how in sync he's become with his players and vice versa. Arteta, however, says that "100 wins is not a title". That's what he wants. Arsenal's goals were scored by Gabriel Magalhaes in the 11th minute, Gabriel Martinelli in the 26th minute, and Martin Odegaard in stoppage time just before halftime.
10-Man United Settle for an 0-0 Draw
A 10-man Manchester United side settled for an 0-0 draw with Southampton, after both teams failed to find the back of the net. United's Casemiro was shown a red card after a foul and the team was left with 10 men.
The two teams played a satisfactorily good game but couldn't convert their shots on target. The loss is especially hard-hitting for Man United since it makes it harder for them to defend their spot in the top four of the EPL Table.
West Ham Draw Aston Villa
In another match played yesterday, West Ham drew 1-1 with Aston Villa, as both teams struggled to best the other. The game was well-played and both teams really tried to best their opponents. Aston Villa opened the scoring in the 17th minute, thanks to an Ollie Watkins goal, but West Ham's Said Benrahma ensured that they made a reply in the 26th minute, thanks to a penalty kick that he converted.
Newcastle Beats Wolves
In another game in EPL GW 27, Newcastle beat Wolves 2-1 thanks to goals by Alexander Isak in the 26th minute, and fan favorite Miguel Amiron in the 79th minute. Wolves were not left behind, however, and saw the back of the net via a Hwang Hee-chan goal in the 70th minute.
