Arsenal beat Brentford 3-0 on Sunday afternoon to return to the top of the Premier League dislodging reigning champions, Manchester who had ascended to the summit of the table on Saturday following a 3-0 win against Wolves.
The Gunners had a game in hand.
Mikel Arteta’s men scored two goals in the first half hour (William Saliba 17′ Gabriel Jesus 28′) putting the Gunners in a commanding position before Fábio Vieira put a gloss on the win with a lovely long-range strike on the 49′ minute.
Brentford weren’t bad. They just weren’t as good.
Meanwhile, Everton beat West Ham to win their first Premier League game of the season.
The game took a long time to get going, with neither side showing a big threat in the first half.
After the break, Everton came out quickly and Neal Maupay (53′) thumped a shot into the near post for his first Toffees goal.
West Ham pushed for an equaliser and hit the post through substitute Benrahma’s whipped effort, but they couldn’t find a way through.
