Adam Wharton shines on Merseyside, Mateo Kovacic displays City’s depth and Erik ten Hag gets tetchy Joachim Andersen was named Sky’s man of the match at Anfield and with good reason. But while the Danish centre-back won header after header and made clearance after clearance, and while the front three of Jean-Philippe Mateta, Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise caused repeated problems on the break, there was one figure who stood out in midfield for his calmness: Adam Wharton, perhaps the brightest of the hugely promising generation brought through by Tony Mowbray at Blackburn. The 20-year-old moved ..read more

Arijanet Muric is on a one-man crusade to bring back football gaffe videos but he might need to pay Bart Verbruggen some royalties, too. Last week, Muric whacked a clearance against Dominic Calvert-Lewin to gift Everton three points and on Saturday he let a meek Sander Berge backpass under his foot to cost Burnley a much-needed victory ..read more

Welcome returns at Liverpool, Arsenal and Villa juggle ambitions and Guimarães’s discipline under scrutiny Should Bruno Guimarães be booked against Tottenham at St James’ Park the Newcastle and Brazil midfielder faces a dilemma. Given that Guimarães is on nine yellow cards, a 10th would trigger an automatic two-game suspension, depriving Eddie Howe of a key player for forthcoming games at Crystal Palace and at home to Sheffield United. Alternatively, Guimarães could make sure he collected a second yellow card, ideally late in stoppage time, and be sent off. In such a red card scenario, the san ..read more

Kai Havertz inspires Arsenal again, Jarrad Branthwaite stands tall and Manchester City prioritise fresh legs If emotion is carrying Liverpool towards a glorious farewell to Jürgen Klopp, then Old Trafford required cooler heads. Harvey Elliott’s point-rescuing contribution as substitute stood out because, for all his energy, he played with intelligence, seeking to progress the ball and tempting Aaron Wan-Bissaka into conceding a penalty. The likes of Dominik Szoboszlai and even usual pass-master Alexis Mac Allister had allowed a red mist to consume them. Luis Díaz, Mohamed Salah and Darwin Núñe ..read more

Brighton’s fans did not give their former favourite a warm welcome but he responded with an immaculate performance For someone who professes to not enjoy watching football in his spare time, Ben White is pretty good at playing it. On his 100th Premier League appearance for Arsenal, the England rebel put in another immaculate performance against his former club as Mikel Arteta’s side overcame the latest hurdle in their quest for the Premier League title despite a significant test of their credentials by Brighton. This was the type of occasion that had seemed set up for Arsenal to falter after M ..read more

Brighton 0-3 Arsenal: Premier League – as it happened

Arsenal reclaimed top spot in the Premier League after an efficient victory at the Amex 3 min: Brighton contribute to the thrust and parry with an attack of their own, Enciso winning a corner with a purposeful run down the left. And when that’s taken … 1 min 3 sec: Odegaard makes to swing in the free kick, but dummies. Everyone resets in the middle, and Brighton are caught out. Odegaard delivers this time, and Gabriel should power home a header from six yards, but clanks it wide left. What a huge chance for the fastest of starts ..read more

Arsenal go top as Saka, Havertz and Trossard sweep aside Brighton

It was not only the victory, although that was plainly the biggest thing for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal, one to return them to the top of the Premier League table. It was the manner of it; how they absorbed everything that Brighton threw at them before pulling clear during a second-half masterclass of strength and control. The success or otherwise of Arsenal’s title bid will surely be determined on the road and this was the first of four testing assignments – the others will come at Wolves, Tottenham and Manchester United. Brighton were unbeaten in their previous 14 matches in all competitions a ..read more

In full Bloom: Brighton well set for success with or without De Zerbi

Savvy chairman unlikely to be losing sleep about what will happen this summer with Italian manager ‘I believe in betting aggressively and, occasionally, to win big, you have to risk losing.” Tony Bloom has always been a gambler, although when it comes to running Brighton the owner has tended to steer clear of taking too many risks. So it’s unlikely the man known as “the Lizard” during his days as a professional poker player has been losing too much sleep about what will happen this summer with Roberto De Zerbi, especially in a week when Brighton banked record Premier League profits of £122m ..read more

Everton’s Sean Dyche badly needs a win while Liverpool and Manchester United renew their historic rivalry Michael Olise’s anticipated return from injury for Crystal Palace against Manchester City could not be more timely for Oliver Glasner’s struggling side. The France Under-21s attacker has been in sensational form this season on the rare occasions he has made it on to the pitch – Olise has played only 755 minutes so far in just 11 appearances, but in that time has scored six goals and provided three assists. City are believed to be one of several clubs who have been monitoring his progress a ..read more
