Highlights: Watch Full highlights Bournemouth 0:3 Arsenal as the Gunners coasted to victory; Odegaard and Saliba with the Stunner
Captain Martin Odegaard’s early brace propelled the visitors to the top of the Premier League as Arsenal cruised to win against Bournemouth.
The defender scored his first goal for the team as the Gunners maintained their unblemished start to the new season with a wonderful goal from William Saliba to complete their 3-0 victory at the Vitality Stadium.
Odegaard gave Arsenal the lead after just 11 seconds, marking the first time since scoring twice for Stromsgodset in October 2014 that the Norwegian international has placed Arsenal ahead.
As Arsenal sat at the bottom of the table without a point or goal at this point in the previous season, Mikel Arteta was facing calls to have his job removed.
While Gabriel Jesus, a summer acquisition, did not add to his goal total on the south coast, he was once more crucial in the team’s dramatic turn around in fortunes.
And that is it. In the end, Arsenal won with ease.
Odegaard’s two goals in the first half and Saliba’s incredible second-half goal were sufficient. Despite making gains in the second half, Bournemouth was outmatched in this game.
With nine points out of nine, Arsenal moves to the top of the Premier League standings.
All very different from the previous year, when they dropped their opening three contests and Mikel Arteta was in the most precarious of situations.
