Georges-Kevin N’Koudou and Frank Magrid further solidified Cameroon’s dominance, sealing the win with their well-executed goals. The celebration was, however, dampened by Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana’s injury, which forced him to leave the field in the 81st minute and raised questions ahead of their upcoming match against Libya on Tuesday.

A resounding roar filled the Emirates as Arsenal clinched a tense 2-1 triumph over Wolves, extending their lead at the English Premier League summit by four points. Despite an early lead with goals from Saka and Odegaard within the first 13 minutes, missed opportunities allowed Wolves to stay in contention. A late scare from Cunha’s brilliant finish tested Arsenal’s resolve, but Arteta’s men held on.

While Arsenal fans revel in the victory, attention shifts to Sunday’s fixtures featuring contenders like Manchester City, Liverpool, and Aston Villa. Arsenal’s upcoming clash against Luton Town awaits on Tuesday. Simultaneously, Wolves aim to rebound from consecutive defeats as they host Burnley in three days’ time.

Historical statistics underscore Arsenal’s dominance, maintaining a scoring streak against Wolves and reaching their 100th goal of 2023 through Saka’s opener. Meanwhile, in a separate encounter, Newcastle United delivered a stellar performance to secure a memorable 1-0 victory over Manchester United.

Anthony Gordon’s second-half tap-in proved decisive for Newcastle, securing three well-deserved points. The win propelled Newcastle above Tottenham on goal difference, securing fifth place in the Premier League table. Manchester United continued to struggle away against top-eight teams, with their last such win dating back to October 2021.

Newcastle’s remarkable run against Manchester United extended, with three consecutive victories in all competitions, a feat not achieved since January 1922. The Magpies have been formidable at home, winning seven out of eight Premier League games and boasting the most home clean sheets this season. Despite a strangely poor performance, Erik ten Hag’s team narrowly escaped St James’ Park with a 1-0 defeat, as Trippier’s free-kick rattled the underside of the bar in the first half.
