Arsenal, Everton and Leicester City had a bad evening at home as they dropped points. Newcastle held the Gunners in London to a point. Fulham and Brighton on the other hand, bagged all three.
Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle United
Arsenal had to settle for a point on Tuesday after five consecutive victories in the Premier League. The Premier League leader also remained unproductive for the first time and suffered the first loss of points at home. Responsible for the rare result for The Gunners was Newcastle United, who also underlined that they had been in the right form for a long time with the draw in London.
Because The Magpies have nestled themselves in the top of the Premier League thanks to their strong series after the loss to Liverpool in August. The strong defense, with Sven Botman, is the pillar of the success of manager Eddie Howe’s team. This was also apparent on Tuesday at the Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal failed to find the hole.
Newcastle United, who had come close to scoring through Joelinton in the first half, survived the growing pressure from Arsenal. One point was the reward, with which The Magpies maintained themselves at the top of the Premier League. That was also thanks to goalkeeper Nick Pope, who saved Eddie Nketiah from a hit in the final phase with a nice save.
Leicester City 0-1 Fulham
Leicester City also lost the third game in the Premier League after the World Cup. Fulham were too strong for The Foxes, who were forced into a race to catch up by an early goal from Aleksandar Mitrovic. It turned out to be an impossible task for Leicester to clear the backlog.
Everton 1-4 Brighton & Hove Albion
Brighton & Hove Albion has put Everton in deeper trouble. A very productive phase immediately after the break was decisive at Goodison Park, where the guests took control of the game in a seven-minute period. Kaoru Mitoma had already put Brighton on the right track before the break. After the goals of Evan Ferguson, Solomon Marsch and Pascal Gross, it was over in the 57th minute for Everton, which is one point above the red line after the defeat. Demarai Gray’s goal of honor was little consolation.
