Premier League: Man United edge Luton, 10-man Arsenal defeat Burnley, Everton triumph at Crystal Palace

Manchester United secured a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Luton Town in the Premier League on Saturday. Despite their recent struggles, United managed to hold on for the win, lifting them into sixth place in the table. Manager Erik ten Hag showed faith in Marcus Rashford, who had received a red card in their midweek Champions League match, but the forward and his teammates struggled to break down Luton’s defense in the first half. However, just before the hour mark, Victor Lindelof capitalized on a loose ball from a corner to score the decisive goal.

Meanwhile, Arsenal aimed to maintain their momentum after a win over Sevilla in the Europa League. Leandro Trossard opened the scoring for Arsenal in first-half injury time, but Burnley’s Josh Brownhill equalized less than 10 minutes into the second half. However, William Saliba restored Arsenal’s lead with a close-range header from a corner. Oleksandr Zinchenko then added a third goal with an acrobatic volley from another corner. Despite late nerves caused by Fabio Vieira’s red card, Arsenal held on for the win, moving up to second place in the table, level on points with league leaders Manchester City.

In another match, Everton claimed a late victory over Crystal Palace. Vitaliy Mykolenko gave Everton an early lead, but Palace equalized from the penalty spot through Eberechi Eze. Abdoulaye Doucoure then put Everton back in front early in the second half. Odsonne Edouard scored a clever equalizer for Palace, but it was Gueye who secured the win for Everton with a composed finish in the 86th minute. Everton now sit in 14th place, two points behind Palace in 12th.
