(EFE) – Arsenal fans could not dream of a better start to the season. Champions of the Community Shield and in the first game of the Premier League thrashed by 0-3 against Fulham.
Mikel Arteta’s team took all three points from the classic Craven Cottage, which returns a year later to the Premier League, thanks to a choral performance in which the men at the top performed perfectly.
And that the previous game was fraught with nervousness due to an altercation between Dani Ceballos and Eddie Nketiah. In a warm-up round, the players got into a small argument that ended in shoving, although it did not progress.
When the ball started rolling, things got very heads up for the Gunners, who were ahead after 9 minutes. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put in a cross from the left, the defense and the Fulham goalkeeper made a mess defending Willian and the ball was dead and at pleasure for Alexandre Lacazette to push.
With the score in favor, Arsenal felt very comfortable and waited for the second half to sentence Fulham. Gabriel, the new signing of Arsenal from Lille, finished off a corner set by Willian and whose header slipped between the legs of Marek Rodak, the Fulham goalkeeper.
A few minutes later, in a typical Arteta possession play, the ball reached Aubameyang, heeled on the left side. The Gabonese came to the interior and put it with the interior in the opposite square of Rodak.
The 0-3 places provisional leader Arsenal while waiting for the rest of the day to be completed.
