Bournemouth 0-3 Arsenal As Martin Odegaard nets twice
Martin Odegaard opened the scoring with a simple rebound after Gabriel Martinelli’s shot was saved
Odegaard, Arsenal’s new captain, put Arsenal on course for victory with two early goals, the first created by a simply astonishing run by Jesus, their new talisman. Victory was sealed in the second half by Saliba, their new defensive general, who netted his first ever Arsenal goal with a sumptuous curling effort from the edge of the box. It could have been even sweeter, had Jesus not strayed offside before scoring from Odegaard’s through-ball. That would have capped another superb individual display.
But no matter, really. Arsenal’s perfect start to the season goes on. The last time they won their first three matches of a league season? 2004, when they were still Invincible. Steady on.
