Arsenal made a winning start to the season as a goal in either half gave Mikel Arteta’s side a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the opening game of the Premier League campaign at Selhurst Park on Friday.
Gabriel Martinelli headed home from close range in the 20th minute following a well-worked corner before a fierce cross from Bukayo Saka was turned into his own net by Palace defender Marc Guehi in the final minutes to secure an opening three points for Arsenal as they maintained momentum from a summer of positivity around the red half of north London.
