Premier League: Sensational Spurs shine again; Arsenal held by Brighton
Tottenham Hotspurs continued with their sensational form as they thrashed Bournemouth 5-0 to move to the second spot in the Premier League table.
This was their fifth consecutive win in the Premier League as Spurs now have scored a whopping 11 goals in two games as they toppled City to the second spot after Liverpool.
The limelight was hogged by Kyle Walker-Peters whose sensational show helped Spurs go 3-0 up before half-time. He was in the mix of things when he set up the opener for his side with Christian Eriksen finding the back of the net from a deflection. Son Heung-Min and Lucas Moura scored the other two goals to help Spurs establish a stronghold on the match.
A brilliant pass from Eriksen helped Harry Kane score his side’s fourth before Son took advantage of a scramble in the box to cap off the dominant show.
Arsenal held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton
Arsenal meanwhile were held at the Amex Stadium by Brighton–a result that made it difficult for them to move into the top four after Chelsea beat Watford.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continued his goal-scoring form after he converted an assist from strike partner Alexandre Lacazette in the third minute. Arsenal were the better side in the opening 30 minutes and it was Matt Ryan to didn’t let them add to their lead.
But a mistake from right-back Stephan Lichsteiner who headed a ball into the path of Brighton striker Jurgen Locadia helped the hosts equalise and avoid a fourth loss on the trot.
Following that period, the Gunners failed to create the magic they did in the initial moments of the match. They barely scraped through to a draw at the end of the contest and would owe it largely to missed opportunities from Locadia and Solly March for the result.
