Arsenal forward, Kai Havertz, took to social media to express his joy following his side's comprehensive win against Bournemouth on Saturday, May 4.

The 24-year-old saw his two-game scoring streak come to an end against the Cherries but played an important role in the Gunners' three-nil victory at the Emirates Stadium.

Havertz's controversial penalty spurs Arsenal to victory

Despite a challenging first half, the North London club managed to break the deadlock, albeit amidst controversy.

Following a lengthy VAR review, Havertz was awarded a penalty, affirming David Coote's initial judgement.

The penalty decision sparked debate among fans due to its perceived 'softness', as Bournemouth goalkeeper, Mark Travers, was deemed to have caught the German's trailing leg, as noted by GOAL.

However, Bukayo Saka confidently converted the spot-kick, becoming the first Englishman since Theo Walcott in the 2012–13 season to score 20+ goals in a single campaign for Arsenal.

Additionally, second-half goals from Leandro Trossard and Declan Rice sealed the victory for Mikel Arteta's men, enhancing their prospects of clinching their first Premier League title since the 2003–04 season.

Up next for Havertz and his teammates is a trip to Old Trafford, where they face Manchester United in their penultimate Premier League game of the season.

Havertz shares joy on social media

Despite not finding the net himself, Havertz received an impressive overall rating of 8.3 from Sofascore.

After the game, he expressed his joy on social media, highlighting Arsenal's progress towards beating defending champions Manchester City, who will play Wolves later on Saturday, for the EPL trophy.

"Another one," he wrote on the X App (formerly Twitter).

Adebayor concerned about Kai Havertz

In a previous publication, Sports Brief reported that former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has expressed concerns about Kai Havertz's playing style despite acknowledging the player's adaptation to Arsenal.

However, the 24-year-old has since emerged as a pivotal figure under Mikel Arteta, cementing his place in the starting lineup.
