‘We’re top of the league’
Was the chant ringing around The Emirates at full-time, and they have plenty of reason to celebrate after they overcame conceding an early goal to win 3-1 at home on Boxing Day.
Arsenal looked a little rusty to begin with, as William Saliba scythed down Jarrod Bowen inside the box to give the visitors an early penalty.
That penalty was dispatched by Said Benrahma, and celebrated in typically cool fashion.
But the celebrations didn’t last too long, as early in the second half Bukayo Saka continued his brilliant season dispatching a mishit shot from Odegaard into the bottom left corner.
Martinelli then gave the hosts the lead, with left footed, low driven shot past Fabianski.
It was Nketiah who scored the pick of the bunch, spinning Thilo Kehrer, and finishing off an excellent team goal that was typical Arsenal.
A great result and a great night for The Gunners, who will have made Arsene Wenger proud with that showing.
