Fulham vs Arsenal (0-3): The Arsenal showed the ‘hype’ that is behind the rise of the curtain of the Premier League. The set of Mikel Arteta passed the rollover newly-promoted Fulham. Who had a harsh reality session on his return to the top flight (0-3).
An excellent debut for Willian, with two assists, in the Premier League curtain-raiser
Willian and Gabriel, the two great signings of this summer, were undoubted protagonists of the match, of which they were headlines. Especially the former Chelsea, author of two assists and who demonstrated the step forward that Arsenal has taken in their offensive plot. Gabriel also came out happy, who put his signature on the second goal of the afternoon.
It was not showy the first time. Neither Arsenal was fresh nor Fulham tried to do more than hinder their rival’s game. But Arteta’s Arsenal seems to have a winning ‘gene’ and in a carom move, Lacazette found the first one very early (8 ‘). Scott Parker’s team was well placed and complicated the circulation of the ‘gunner’, who beyond the goal only had one chance from Elneny and a shot at the post from Willian in a direct free kick.
Everything settled after the break. As soon as at the start Arsenal met the goal. From Gabriel in this case and after a corner kick in which the center-back headed to extend the lead (49 ‘). A very big slab for Fulham, especially when Willian changed the game and Aubameyang put the ball throughout the squad, signing the sentence (57 ‘).
Fulham lowered their arms and Arsenal relaxed, who was able to do a bit more, especially in a couple of good crossings on the right, orchestrated by a Bellerin who performed at a good level. A serious warning to sailors of Arsenal, who has just won the FA Cup and Community Shield at the hands of Arteta.
