Kai Havertz scores late winner to send Arsenal TOP of Premier League

Arsenal have beaten Brentford to go top of the Premier League thanks to a Kai Havertz late winner.

The Gunners took the lead in the 19th minute as midfielder Declan Rice headed home a cross from Ben White.

Brentford grabbed an equaliser in the dying embers of the 1st half thanks to Yoane Wissa and a big mistake from Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

And of course, with the Premier League title at stake, Arsenal had to push to try and grab a winner to keep the pressure on Man City and Liverpool who meet tomorrow at Anfield.

They certainly did that as the £65m man Kai Havertz headed Arsenal into the lead at the death.

The victory means Arsenal are now top of the Premier League but if they remain there all depends on the conclusion of Liverpool v Man City tomorrow.
