Club captain Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Magalhães are on target as Arsenal come from behind to beat Fulham 2-1 in the Premier League encounter at Emirate Stadium on Saturday at late kick-off.

The Brazilian defender was caught out in possession on the edge of his box to allow Aleksandar Mitrovic to put Fulham ahead after a goalless first half.

The Serbian striker’s fourth goal of the season threatened Arsenal’s perfect start of the season but new Gunners skipper Odegaard equalized for the home side with a deflected strike eight minutes later.

Gabriel redeemed himself with a scrambled finish from close range in the 85th minute after a scramble following a desperate corner.

Arsenal got lucky after goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale then made a crucial save to deny Nathaniel Chalobah with minutes remaining at Emirate Stadium.

The win sees Arsenal remain on top of the Premier League table with their fourth win out of matches played, while Fulham’s unbeaten start of the 2022-23 season comes to an end after their return to the top flight.
