Morning Arsenal fans
Arsenal remain top of the Premier League after Manchester City’s draw at Newcastle.
The Citizens drew 3-3 at St James’ Park after coming back from a 3-1 deficit to take a point.
This means the Gunners are the only side to date with a 100 per cent winning record in the Premier League.
Regardless of the result between Manchester United and Liverpool, Arsenal will be on top in week four.
Meanwhile, Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin is reportedly close to returning to Barcelona.
The Spanish defender, who has also been linked with a move to Real Betis, was snapped up by the Gunners from Barca’s academy in 2011.
Bellerin is allowed to leave Arsenal this summer, favoring Ben White, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Cedric Soares instead.
According to transfer guru Gerard Romero, there is a growing feeling that the 27-year-old will join the Blaugrana in the coming days.
In other news, Mikel Arteta has praised William Saliba after his stunning performance against Bournemouth.
He said: “What he does at 21 is rare. He really stays humble.
“He wants to learn, he wants to train every day and he pushes himself a lot and he gives a lot to the team.
“It is very important to concede the goal as well. Everyone scores goals and that’s good.”
Finally, Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun has made history for Reims as he continues to shine on loan.
The youngster scored in his third straight game since arriving at the French club.
He scored away at Strasbourg in the 81st minute to snatch a point for the visitors.
In doing so, he became the first Reims player to score in each of his first three games since Jacques Vergnes in August 1975.
