We start the weekend off with some positive news for the Arsenal fans, as they finally get their first Premier League win of this season as well as their opening goal of the season against Norwich City who are now at the bottom with Newcastle United. A goal from Pierre- Emerick Aubameyang was enough to put the gunners ahead giving them a 1-0 win on Saturday. Good start for Arsenal after a disastrous opening three weeks of this Premier League season.


3. BAYERN TRIUMPHANT OVER LEIPZIG


After an absolute dominant display FC Bayern Munich beat RB Leipzig away from home giving them three points over the rivals. Goals from Robert Lewandowski, youngster Jamal Musiala, Leroy Sane and stoppage time goal from Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting gives ex RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann his third win in the Bundesliga against his old club. League top scorer Robert Lewandowski (six goals) adds yet another goal to his ever-growing goal tally and makes him one ahead of competitor Erling Haaland ( five goals ). All together a satisfying and exploiting performance by the current league defenders who plan to go for their 10th consecutive league title.
