Declan Rice scored his first Arsenal goal deep into injury time and Gabriel Jesus added another one past the 100th minute mark to give Arsenal a 3-1 win over Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.

The game at the Emirates looked headed for a 1-1 draw when the ball fell to Rice – Arsenal’s record signing – after a corner and the midfielder downed it on his chest before hitting a right-footed shot that beat Andre Onana inside the near post in the sixth minute of stoppage time.

That goal came after United substitute Alejandro Garnacho thought he had scored a late winner after a quick counterattack in the 89th, but the goal was disallowed after a VAR check for offside.

With United pushing forward for a last-gasp equaliser, Arsenal countered in the 11th minute of stoppages and Jesus calmly slotted the ball past Onana to seal the win.

The teams had traded quick goals in the first half. Marcus Rashford gave United the lead against the run of play after a quick counter in the 27th and Martin Odegaard levelled shortly after the restart.

Elsewhere, Dominik Szoboszlai scored his first goal for Liverpool and Mohamed Salah netted his seventh in seven games against Aston Villa as the hosts eased to a 3-0 victory at Anfield.

Salah, reportedly a transfer target for Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad, netted goal number 188 of his Liverpool career with a toe poke at the back post in the 55th minute.

Szoboszlai had given Liverpool a dream start with a left-footed half-volley from the edge of the 18-yard box after three minutes. Liverpool doubled their lead when Darwin Nunez’s firm shot hit the post and rebounded into the net off Villa defender Matty Cash.

At Selhurst Park, French forward Odsonne Edouard struck twice in an action-packed second half to power Crystal Palace to a 3-2 home victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

After a drab opening 45 minutes, Palace scored the opener in the 56th minute as Tyrick Mitchell raced down the left and played a perfectly weighted pass across the face of the goal for Edouard to poke home.

Wolves levelled through substitute Hwang Hee-chan’s well-directed header, but Palace scored again in the 78th minute when Eberechi Eze showed great individual skill, controlling a Jean-Philippe Mateta pass with a backheel flick before stabbing a shot past Jose Sa.

The hosts put the contest beyond doubt when Edouard played a one-two with Mateta to breeze through Wolves’ tired defence and tuck away a cool finish before Matheus Cunha scored a consolation goal for the visitors six minutes into added time.
