It seems a long time ago when Arsenal supporters demanded the head of Mikel Arteta , after three consecutive defeats in the Premier League, at the start of the 2021-2022 season.
A year later, Arsenal has just scored three successes in a row and is at the top of the English championship. In accordance with their coach’s wishes, the Gunners are developing an attractive game and are clearly playing a step above what they were able to offer last season. Arsenal again offered a demonstration of their potential to their supporters with a spectacular victory (3-0) against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
jesus walks on water
Author of a double against Leicester, Gabriel Jesus is a player transformed since his arrival in London, from Manchester City. Boiling since the start of the season, the Brazilian was again decisive at the start of the match, delighting with his ball-to-foot technique to slalom between the Bournemouth players, transformed into cones, before serving his compatriot Martinelli. The latter fell on Travers but Odegaard followed in the area to conclude from the left (5th). The former Real player showed the same spontaneity and the same promptness to beat Gabriel Jesus to strike and achieve a double (11th).
Far from resenting his still excellent partner, Gabriel Jesus let his joy and burst out as if he had scored, proof that the group is living well. Dangerous throughout the match, the Brazilian was denied a goal at the start of the last quarter of an hour. Arsenal were already leading 3-0 thanks to a gem from William Saliba (54th), the French international’s first goal in the Premier League. Full of confidence, like his team, Saliba triggered 20m from the left – his bad foot – without asking any questions. The ball then dipped under Travers’s crossbar. Unstoppable. Even Zinchenko, kneeling with both hands on his head, couldn’t believe his eyes.
Travers avoids sinking
Caught at the entrance, Bournemouth has never been able to compete with Arsenal. The pale rebellion of the promoted interview on returning from the locker room, in the wake of the offensive changes made by Scott Parker, was quickly put down. Travers even had to work to avoid sinking against the opposing offensive power. This will require confirmation against teams of another standing, but this Arsenal team may have more to offer than a 5th place this season.
