Arsenal get 2020-21 off to a flying start as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on target inn the 3-0 win over Fulham in the Premier League encounter at Craven Cottage on Saturday early kick-off.
New Arsenal signing Willian provided two assists for Gabriel and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on his debut after helping to force Alexandre Lacazette’s unmissable opener.
Former Lyon man netted the only goal of the first-half when he finished off a scrappy passage of play from close range.
Summer signing Gabriel scored on debut after he connected from a Willian corner von 49 minutes of the Premier League encounter.
It took just seven minutes for Arsenal to add their third with Brazil international involved once more, struck a crossfield pass to Aubameyang on the left before the Gunners skipper secured the result with a fantastic finish into the top right corner.
Michael Hector cleared off the line to deny Aubameyang a second and prevent Fulham’s first game back in the top flight from becoming worse.
Gunners came close to score again when Kieran Tierney fed a ball down the left to Aubameyang who crossed to Lacazette but Fulham keeper Rodak punched the shot away but only as far as Hector Bellerin who took his shot well but the referee blew the whistle for an earlier offside.
Arsenal host West Ham next Saturday, while Fulham are in EFL Cup action at Ipswich Town in four days’ time.
