The Gunners Makes An Excellent Start To EPL

Arsenal began their season with a bang, defeating Crystal Palace in an entertaining 2022-23 Premier League curtain-raiser at Selhurst Park.

After an impressive pre-season, expectations and excitement levels have risen around The Emirates, and Mikel Arteta’s side delivered on the opening night, with Gabriel Martinelli and a Marc Guehi own goal enough to secure the points.

New signees Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko both contributed, with the Brazilian striker posing a constant threat through the middle and Zinchenko setting up Martinelli’s headed first-half goal.

It took Palace most of the first half to adapt to the visitors’ tempo, but once they did Odsonne Edouard forced Aaron Ramsdale into a save after Joachim Andersen’s header found him in the six-yard box.

Buoyed by a vibrant home crowd, the Eagles poured forward in search of a leveller but it was Arsenal who found the net again, Marc Guehi inadvertently heading Bukayo Saka’s fierce cross into his own goal late on.

Crystal Palace have a 10-day break now until their next fixture on Monday 15 August against Liverpool at Anfield, live on Sky Sports. Meanwhile, Arsenal play their first home game of the season next Saturday at 3pm when Leicester visit The Emirates.
