Here is a quick recap of the Premier League matches this weekend, September 16-18, 2023
Arsenal 1-0 Everton
Arsenal took the lead in the match after a narrow victory over Everton at Goodison Park. Leandro Trossard scored the game’s only goal in the 69th minute, keeping Arsenal unbeaten since the start of the season.
Bournemouth 0-0 Chelsea
Both teams gave excellent performances but were unable to score as the match ended in a draw. But the big question is what is Chelsea’s fate this season if that they can’t even score a goal against the newly promoted Bournemouth.

Newcastle defeats Brentford 1-0 at St James’ Park thanks to Callum Wilson’s penalty, which he converted calmly after Brentford’s Mark Flekken fouled Anthony Gordon.
Aston Villa 3-1 Crystal Palace
Aston Villa come from a goal down to eventually beat Crystal Palace 3-1 at Villa Park. Odsonne Edouard gave Palace the lead; Jhon Duran equalized for Villa in the 87th minute; and added-time goals from Douglas Luiz and Leon Bailey secured the victory.
