The Gunners now hold a five-point lead over Liverpool following their 4-3 victory over Luton.

Wright loses his mind after Rice's header

It has been a long time since Arsenal last won the Premier League title, 19 years to be exact, so we can forgive Wright for losing his mind after Rice’s last-gasp header.

He stood up and yelled non-stop as the Gunners grabbed all three points. He mentioned James Maddison texting him, 'I hate that he plays for Arsenal' just before Rice scored.

He continued screaming for joy before the clip ended with Wright shouting, "Arsenal, Arsenal!"

The Gunners know fully well that every win counts after their late collapse last season handed Manchester City their third straight league title.

Arsenal vs Luton: an instant classic

Goals were flowing in Arsenal's win against Luton, with both teams finding the back of the net seven times.

Gabriel Martinelli opened the scoring for Arsenal in the 20th minute. The lead didn't last long as Luton's Gabriel Osho equalised in the 25th minute. The Gunners regained the lead in the 45th minute through a Gabriel Jesus goal.

Luton regrouped after the half-time break, taking a 3-2 lead after goals from Elijah Adebayo and Ross Barkley. The Gunners battled back, however, to deny the hosts a famous victory.

Kai Havertz tied the match at 3-3 with a strike in the 60th minute before Declan Rice's late heroics gave the visitors all three points, per The Guardian.
