Arsenal got off to a quick start as Norwegian player Martin Ødegaard scores within just 5 minutes of the match with an assist from Bukayo Saka. Striker Cucho Hernández follows up with a back-heel kick to equalise minutes later. Fans favourite, Bukayo Saka scores giving arsenal a 2-1 lead for the first half of the match. Martinelli scored just moments after halftime putting the gunners 3-1 ahead. 87 minutes of the match later, midfielder Moussa Sissoko puts it in the back of the net making the result 3-2. 

When asked “How do you see the top four race?” The gaffer replied “I don’t like to look at the table a lot because we have games in hand. We are gonna play different fixtures and I know what the objective is and it’s only one to train tomorrow and improve on what we’ve done today and go into the next match. I cannot control results and I cannot predict which matches we are going to win, draw or lose.” 

Stepping up in his newly made role as captain, Lacazette, played a big part throughout the match assisting 2 of 3 goals. His consistency has shown Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta may have made the right decision in choosing him to be the new captain as former captain Aubameyang parted ways with his transfer to Fc Barcelona a month ago. 

When asked about captain Lacazette the gaffer responded, “For what I ask of him and the contribution that I need from him in the team, I think he’s doing really well.” 

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta states in an interview post-match “Now they’ve been playing together and consistently for longer periods which is very much needed so the understanding is better, they trust each other, they understand what to do in relation to what the opponent is doing.”
