Arsenal maintained their perfect start to the Premier League campaign. Arsenal dismantled Bournemouth in a relentless display to claim a 3-0 win to keep up their 100% start to the Premier League season on Saturday. The victory moved Arsenal into the lead at the top of the Premier League, their first perfect start to the campaign in a three-game series since the 2004-05 campaign. It was over at the Vitality Stadium, where Arsenal had crushed Bournemouth to claim their third straight win to sit atop the Premier League at this early stage of the campaign. Arsenal cruised to a win over Bournemouth with an early brace from captain Martin Odegaard.
Arsenal crushed Bournemouth, and they did so in style, riding on the back of a pair of Martin Odegaard goals in the opening half; an excellent performance from the young centre-back William Saliba saw Arsenal cruise to a 3-0 win. Arsenal now has scored more than one goal in all three of their Premier League matches this season and all five of their pre-season matches, too (five vs Nurnberg, two vs Everton, three vs Orlando City, four vs Chelsea, and six against Sevilla). Arsenal can now claim clean sheets in the opening two away league matches for the first time since 1993. In December 2019, Arteta’s first game as Arsenal manager was played in this stadium.
Gabriel Jesus has made an immediate impact for Arsenal, with Gabriel Jesus scoring his first goal for the club in a 4-2 win against Leicester. Odegaard scored the game’s first goal, and Gabriel Martinelli provided the assist, according to the stats. Still, it was Gabriel Jesus’ contribution that had the most significant impact on shifting the contest in Arsenal’s favour early on. Xhaka probably never imagined the day his name would go out joyfully; away fans happily breezed through their previous collection of chants, even throwing out some new ones because he deserves it. Saliba placed the ball in his net last week during the Gunners’ 4-2 victory over Leicester City, but he had the support of a crowd that was eager to see him excel after waiting three years to see him play for the club.
There will be more challenging tests ahead, but Arteta has the Gunners in a much better position than they were in the past. Bournemouth will undoubtedly struggle to stay up this season if reinforcements do not arrive before the window closes. Without question, this was a strong performance, but Arsenal should have done better, especially in the second half. There is no doubt that Arsenal let up a bit after they went up 2-0 after 11 minutes; however, our discussion would have been different if Jesus had been correctly called onside by a tiny margin. But for the time being, let’s Trust the Process.
