Arsenal demolished Burnley 5-0 in a Premier League encounter on Saturday to keep up the pressure in the title race.

The win by second-placed Arsenal made it five consecutive wins to move within two points of Liverpool.

Mikel Arteta’s side have beaten Liverpool and won 6-0 at West Ham in their most notable results since a revitalising warm-weather training camp in Dubai.

And they were too hot for second-bottom Burnley to handle from the fourth minute when Martin Odegaard drilled home from Gabriel Martinelli’s pass.

Bukayo Saka netted with a 41st-minute penalty awarded for Lorenz Assignon’s foul on Leandro Trossard.

Saka struck again two minutes after half-time, rifling into the top corner from Odegaard’s pass as the England winger made it six goals in his last four games.

Trossard got the fourth from close-range in the 66th minute and Kai Havertz converted Jakub Kiwior’s pass with 12 minutes left.

Third-placed Manchester City, who have two games in hand on Liverpool, will move level on points with Arsenal if they beat Chelsea in Saturday’s late game.

Spur beaten
Tottenham’s top-four bid suffered a blow as Joao Gomes struck twice in Wolves’ surprise 2-1 win in north London.

Ange Postecoglou’s team were beaten in the league for the first time in 2024, with Gomes heading in the opener after 42 minutes.

Dejan Kulusevski equalised immediately after the interval, but Brazilian midfielder Gomes won it for Wolves with a 63rd-minute blast after an incisive break from the visitors.

Aston Villa took advantage of Tottenham’s stumble to climb back into fourth place with a 2-1 win at Fulham.

Ollie Watkins scored either side of the break for Unai Emery’s side and although Fulham got one back through Rodrigo Muniz, they were unable to force an equaliser.
