Premier League Returns With Arsenal Beating Crystal Palace

The time that we have all been looking forward to has at long last come. The Premier League resumes play after a break for the players during the Christmas season and after several preseason friendlies have been competed in by the teams in their individual preseasons. The current campaign of the competition begins with matches between Arsenal and Crystal Palace. Crystal Palace played host to an Arsenal team that has had a successful preseason and has added players like Gabriel Jesus, Zinchenko, and Saliba to their roster since the summer transfer window opened. Crystal Palace had a very successful season overall the previous year.

Arteta made the decision to field the three new signings in the starting eleven after seeing how well they performed in very successful friendly matches such as the 4-0 win against Chelsea and the 6-0 crushing win against Sevilla. Arteta made this decision because of the good performances the three new signings had had in very successful friendly matches. Martinelli was able to score the Premier League’s opening goal of the 2022/2023 season for Arsenal during the first half of their game, which Arsenal was able to play extremely well, especially the first thirty minutes of the game.

The goal was scored by fullback Zinchenko, who headed the ball in at the near post after receiving the ball from Saka, who had crossed the ball from the corner to the far post. The Brazilian Martinelli was in the ideal position to direct the ball past Guaita and into the back of the net. Guaita was helpless to prevent the goal. Crystal Palace started to play better in the final few minutes of the first half, but it was not enough for them to produce any scoring opportunities.

Crystal Palace got off to a better start in the second half compared to Arsenal, but it was not enough for them to score the equalizer. In addition, in the dying minutes of the game, while Arsenal had a hard time getting the ball out of their own half, Saka was given the ball inside the box during an attacking play, and after shooting across the goal, the ball rebounded onto the head of Guehi, who scored an own goal. This occurred despite the fact that Arsenal had a hard time getting the ball out of their own half.

Saliba and Ben White turned in outstanding performances as defenders, and as a result, they were the most important players in the game. They were able to stymie Zaha whenever the winger had possession of the ball. Despite the fact that he had to defend Gabriel Jesus throughout the match, Andersen was outstanding for the home team.
