Manchester United, Casemiro red card, Erik ten Hag angry, Arsenal beat Fulham, Leandro Trossard, news, scores, results,

Arsenal are five points clear at the top of the Premier League with a stylish 3-0 win at Fulham, while Casemiro was controversially sent off as Manchester United drew 0-0 with Southampton on Sunday.

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side had seen second-placed Manchester City close the gap with a win at Crystal Palace on Saturday. The Gunners responded with the kind of composed display that was the hallmark of their unexpected title attack.

First-half goals from Gabriel Magalhaes, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard – all assisted by Leandro Trossard – put Arsenal on course for a fifth straight league win. In fact, no player has ever provided three assists in the first half of an away game in the Premier League.

Mooy shoots Celtic Cup semifinals! | 00:38

Eleven league games to go, the north Londoners have their sights set on the title. Ever since being knocked off pole after a defeat by City that came in a run of four games without a win, Arsenal have shown what a potential champion can achieve and responded strongly to that wobble.

It was Arsenal’s 11th win in 14 away league games this season, underscoring the consistency and maturity that puts them in a position to win the title for the first time since Arsene Wenger’s ‘Invincibles’ in 2004.

“We scored nice goals. I’m very happy to win away, especially by conceding a goal,” said Arteta.

“It’s great to see how the goals are distributed in the team. Leandro played three assists and could have scored.”

There was more good news for Arsenal in the last 14 minutes as Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus made his first appearance since suffering a knee injury at last year’s World Cup.

While Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger looked on from the stands, the Gunners made sure their celebrity fan was happy from his trip to Craven Cottage.

Gabriel gave Arsenal the lead after 21 minutes as the Brazil centre-back got past three Fulham defenders to hit Trossard’s corner with a powerful header from close range.

Arsenal struck again in the 26th minute with another aerial attack. Trossard was the provider again, teasing down the left flank before launching a cross at Martinelli who easily passed Antonee Robinson and headed home from close range.

Odegaard put the result in doubt in the closing seconds of the first half as Arsenal capitalized on the more pathetic Fulham defence.

On his third assist of the afternoon, Trossard’s cross found Odegaard in the Fulham box and the midfielder, given far too much space, controlled his thigh and braced himself for a powerful punch that sizzled past Bernd Leno.

At Old Trafford, Casemiro’s dismissal forced third-placed United to settle for a dreary stalemate against bottom Southampton.

United are unbeaten in their last 22 home games but that was a poor showing in their first league game since last weekend’s humiliating 7-0 loss to bitter rivals Liverpool.

The Brazilian midfielder’s first warning for a high tackle on Carlos Alcaraz in the 34th minute was changed to a red card after a VAR review.

It was the former Real Madrid star’s second dismissal in eight games following his red card against Crystal Palace, which saw him suspended for four games. He was visibly distraught and fighting back tears as he trotted off the field.

“Casemiro has played over 500 games in Europe and never received a red card. Now he has two in the Premier League,” said United manager Erik ten Hag.

“His absence is not the problem. We will deal with that. This game was influenced by the referee.”

He added: “He plays hard, but he plays fair, he plays fair in that too. Same as against Crystal Palace, so it’s very controversial.”

Ten Hag was also furious at United’s dismissed punitive appeals.

“Well what I think is the inconsistency (means) the players don’t know what the politics is anymore,” Ten Hag said.

“I think everything is correct. I mean you see yesterday Leicester-Chelsea then VAR don’t get on the line.

“Today it comes on the line and then there are two penalty situations, but they don’t come on the line.

“I think especially the first one for me was clear and obvious handball, so what’s the politics?”

Newcastle climbed up to fifth with a 2-1 win over Wolves at St James’ Park over Liverpool.

Sweden striker Alexander Isak headed in Newcastle’s lead after a 26th-minute Kieran Trippier free-kick.

Hwang Hee-chan stabbed Wolves’ equalizer after a Trippier miss in the 70th minute, but Miguel Almiron came off the bench nine minutes later and won when his shot was deflected off Max Kilman.

After winning for the first time in six games in all competitions, Newcastle are four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham in the race to qualify for the Champions League with two games to go.

Hammers booed at home

West Ham were booed despite exiting the relegation zone with a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa at the London Stadium.

Villa took the lead with their first shot on goal and Ollie Watkins headed in Emiliano Buendia’s cross in the 17th minute.

West Ham equalized nine minutes later when Said Benrahma converted a penalty awarded for Leon Bailey’s jab at Lucas Paqueta.

It was another disappointing day for the Hammers.Source: Getty Images Manchester United, Casemiro red card, Erik ten Hag angry, Arsenal beat Fulham, Leandro Trossard, news, scores, results,
