Crystal Palace vs. Arsenal score, and highlights Premier League

With a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Monday night at Selhurst Park, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal just barely secured all three points.

Only two other teams have already won 100% of their games this season, and Martin Odegaard’s penalty allowed the Gunners to keep that streak alive.

Arsenal dominated the first half and got off to a strong start in the second. They were rewarded for their work when Eddie Nketiah was found in behind the Palace defense by Gabriel Martinelli’s fast free kick, who then brought the forward down.

The Gunners captain, Odegaard, rose to the occasion and calmly slid the ball into the bottom left corner to give his team the lead. Only Bukayo Saka has helped Arsenal score more Premier League goals since the start of the previous campaign than the Norwegian.

Takehiro Tomiyasu, though, received a yellow card for taking too long to take a throw-in shortly after taking the lead. Shortly after, he stole Jordan Ayew’s shirt, who had outpaced him in speed, and was later given a second yellow card and dismissed from the game.

Palace now possessed the majority of possession thanks to the additional man, and the tide turned in their favor. Declan Rice and Thomas Partey were in the middle of the field when Eberechi Eze used his talent to dribble into the box. Although he slumped to the ground, referee David Coote continued the game.

The home team persisted in trying to score an equalizer, but Arsenal’s defense shown fortitude to hold on for the victory.

With six points after the second Premier League gameweek, Brighton & Hove Albion are in first place. Arsenal is in third place, behind Pep Guardiola’s team in second.
