Player ratings: Arsenal 2-1 Fulham

Fresh Arsenal newsletter

Arsenal were handed a new, tough test on Saturday night.

The Gunners were aiming to maintain their 100% record but found themselves 1-0 down following a Gabriel mistake in the 56th minute.

Arsenal had dominated the game, but now they had to show character and perform in a different game state. The team were very bad at trying to come from behind last season but at their first attempt this time, they showed different bite.

Martin Odegaard, who ran the show today, saw his deflected shot find its way in and then Gabriel made amends for his earlier error by poking the ball home for the winner.

Kieran Tierney – 6
Mohammed Elneny – 6
Granit Xhaka – 6

Man of the match: Martin Odegaard. It has been a slow start to the season for the new captain, but after two goals last week, he was excellent in this game and got the important equaliser that propelled the team to victory. He was very unlucky not to get an assist with some exquisite through balls.
