Player ratings: Bournemouth 0-3 Arsenal

Fresh Arsenal newsletter

Arsenal stormed to another three points and a second clean sheet of the season as they made light work of Premier League newcomers, Bournemouth.

The Gunners made a very fast start, something they’ve done all season and captain Martin Odegaard found himself in the right place at the right time on two occasions to slot home.

In the second half, Bournemouth were a bit better, but their enthusiasm was stunted when William Saliba swept in a beautiful left-footed effort into the top corner.

Man of the match: William Saliba. There may have been question marks as to how Saliba would cope in the Premier League, especially in away games. But in both away games this season he’s been sensational. His goal was crucial today and he was solid as ever in defence, and sound on the ball with 100% pass accuracy!
