Arsenal first defeated Tottenham, then victory over Liverpool. After another impressive victory over Chelsea, the Gunners will now spend another few days atop the Premier League standings.
For the first time since April 2012, Arsenal has defeated the so-called "big six" in three straight Premier League games. No team has preserved more clean sheets than the Gunners thus far this season, and they are the only team to have scored in each and every game played in the top division (6). After only losing five points all season, they are averaging 2.61 points per game. If they continue at this pace, they will finish with 99 points, six more than City did when they won the league last year.
Erling Haaland's 95th-minute penalty against Fulham gave Manchester City the lead on Saturday, but Arsenal answered with a 1-0 victory at Stamford Bridge. After 13 games, Mikel Arteta's team leads second-place City by two points.
