Manchester City's Erling Haaland marked another Premier League goal-scoring feat by reaching 50 goals in just 48 games, surpassing the previous record held by Andy Cole. However, City couldn't secure a win, settling for a 1-1 draw against Liverpool. Trent Alexander-Arnold's 80th-minute right-footed strike denied City their 24th successive home win, leaving them with 29 points from 13 games. Arsenal claimed the top spot with 30 points after a late 1-0 victory at Brentford, where Kai Havertz's header proved decisive.

Chelsea's resurgence was abruptly halted with a crushing 4-1 defeat at Newcastle United. Brighton and Hove Albion returned to winning ways with a 3-2 victory at Nottingham Forest, despite finishing with 10 men.

Haaland showcased his goal-scoring prowess, capitalizing on a poor clearance from Liverpool's Alisson. However, City lacked killer instinct, and Alexander-Arnold's equalizer denied them the win. Liverpool's manager, Jurgen Klopp, praised Alexander-Arnold's influential performance.

In a challenging match, Arsenal overcame Brentford with Havertz's late header. Manager Mikel Arteta commended his team's resilience and belief despite not being at their best. Meanwhile, Chelsea's Mauricio Pochettino vowed to address the team's performance after a heavy defeat at Newcastle.

Other results included Luton Town's first home win since returning to the top flight, defeating Crystal Palace 2-1, while bottom club Burnley is still without a home point after a 2-1 defeat to West Ham United. Bournemouth secured a 3-1 away victory against Sheffield United.
