Ramsdale on fire, Guehi unhappy
Rightly rewarded for a very clear domination over his evening host, Arsenal nevertheless began to slow down shortly before the break, Aaron Ramsdale showing himself decisive for the first time on a point-blank header from Frenchman Odsonne Edouard (41st). Returning from half-time with the firm intention of quickly taking shelter from a possible return of the men of Patrick Viera, the Gunners again curled the correctional on an attempt by Eberechi Eze (51st), Ramsdale in front once again intervene to preserve the advantage in the score of the Gunners.
Saved a third time by an Aaron Ramsdale in a state of grace on a corner badly cleared by his defender Gabriel (61st), Arsenal then had to wait for the very last moments of the meeting to finally manage to take shelter from a Crystal Palace team who knew how to keep the visitors under pressure. The release came, as often, from Bukayo Saka, the English midfielder managing to deceive the Spanish goalkeeper Vicente Guaita a second time on a tense cross involuntarily extended in his goals by the unfortunate Marc Guehi (84th, 0-2).
Fallen in the suffering of a valiant although limited team of Crystal Palace, Arsenal launches its season ideally and is immediately placed at the top of the Premier League. While waiting, of course, for the appearances of other big names such as Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham or Manchester United.
