Club captain Martin Odegaard scores twice as Arsenal equal 18 years record after 3-0 win over Bournemouth in the Saturday late Premier League encounter at Vitality Stadium.
Gunners maintained their 100 per cent start to the Premier League season with three victories with Norwegian attacking midfielder struck twice inside the opening 11 minutes to put the Gunners in control on Saturday, with Bournemouth failing to register a single touch in the Arsenal box in the first half.
Odegaard opens the flood gate when he tap in the rebound after summer signing Gabriel Jesus skipping through the Bournemouth defence and teeing up with his fellow Brazilian Gabriel Martinelli, who was denied by Mark Traver.
Former Real Madrid player struck again six minutes later when he was setup by Ben White’s cutback to double Gunners lead.
William Saliba netted his first goal for Arsenal to extend that lead in the second half after receiving a pass from Granit Xhaka to make it 3-0 but Jesus saw a strike ruled out for offside by VAR.
It’s the first time in 18 years Arsenal won our first three games and we’re temporarily up to top spot in the Premier League with defending champions Manchester City battle Newcastle Unite at Saint James Park on Sunday.
