A first half goal from Gabriel Martinelli, and a late own goal from Marc Guehi ensured Arsenal took three points on the opening day with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
The Gunners were scintillating in the opening half hour, but found it hard going in the second half in particular. However, an outstanding debut from William Saliba and two very good saves from Aaron Ramsdale helped keep the home side at bay.
In the end, a big win to kick of the season and a clean sheet too.
