Arsenal beats Crystal Palace as the English Premier League returns


Arsenal beats Crystal Palace as the English Premier League returns. Arsenal enjoyed a perfect start to the new English Premier League season as it beat Crystal Palace 2-0 at Selhurst Park on Friday. A first-half header from Gabriel Martinelli and an own-goal from Palace defender Marc Guehi secured the three points as the league returned after just a 75-day break. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said he was happy to get the first win on the board after what proved to be a tricky match. “Yes, really pleased to be winning. Three points, a clean sheet, against a really difficult opponent and a really tough place,” he told reporters after the match. “We showed great resilience to get through them, and it is really positive the way we started. “We started really sharp, really mobile, really determined to play the way we wanted to play. Overall, positive.” The Arsenal team had come under increased scrutiny with the season-opener in the same week as the release of the Amazon docuseries “All or Nothing” which documented the side’s previous campaign.
