    Marc Guehi

    Tooor for Arsenal FC, 0-2 through Marc Guehi (own goal)

    That should have been it, the decision! Saka is attacked too little on the right side and crosses the ball sharply into the middle. Guehi puts his head in the flank and thus puts the ball into his own goal! A bitter pill for the hosts, who were still eligible for a point.

    84

    22:42

    For the two newcomers from Man City, the Premier League premiere for the new club is over. Especially in the first 60 minutes, the two did a really good job and caused a lot of excitement on the Gunners’ offensive.

    10:40 p.m

    The pressure from Crystal Palace is increasing! Arsenal are now falling very low and are probably hoping for the decisive counterattack!

    78

    10:37 p.m

    With stoppage time, there should now be almost a quarter of an hour left. While Arsenal don’t allow much, victory is certainly not set in stone. The game is currently being played by the Eagles.

    75

    22:34

    Doucouré can declare his Premier League debut over. The midfielder did an inconspicuous job, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. He is now replaced by Milivojević.

    71

    22:28

    Good ball from White to Saka, who has a lot of space on the right side. However, the Englishman is pushed too far to the outside and only hits the side netting from an acute angle.

    67

    22:27

    A little more than 20 minutes are still to go. Crystal Palace is defending itself as best it can and is always offensive. But the Eagles haven’t developed the big danger yet.

    64

    22:21

    Nathaniel Clyne

    Nathaniel Clyne (Crystal Palace) is shown a yellow card.

    Clyne reaches hard against Martinelli. That’s such a clear yellow card that referee Taylor still gives a yellow card two minutes after the foul. Only then was the game interrupted.

    60

    22:18

    Ben White

    Yellow card for Ben White (Arsenal FC)

    After a long ball, there is a danger from Zaha, who, however, stops White directly with a foul.

    60

    22:18

    Gabriel Jesus conquers the ball far into the opponent’s half and picks up speed. The newcomer sees Ødegaard in the middle, but he wants to put the ball across again instead of completing it himself. However, that was too much of a good thing.

    59

    22:16

    Patrick Viera changes for the first time. For the hard-working but unlucky Édouard, Mateta is now part of the game.

    58

    22:16

    Jean Philippe Mateta

    Jean-Philippe Mateta comes on at Crystal Palace

    Odsonne Edouard

    Odsonne Édouard is off at Crystal Palace

    57

    22:14

    …Odegaard tries a direct shot, but flicks the ball just wide of the right post.

    56

    22:13

    Saka goes one-on-one again down the right flank and pulls in a dangerous free-kick from the half-right position…

    52

    22:11

    The Eagles can’t leave things like that behind! Zaha plays a world-class ball through the interface and upsets Eze. This appears free in front of Ramsdale, but does not get the ball placed on the goal. Ramsdale is again on the post against this attempt and prevents the equalizer.

    51.

    22:09

    Saka keeps making a lot of pace on the right side. In the middle he serves Ødegaard, who has the ball on the wrong foot and can’t finish it in a controlled manner.

    49

    22:08

    However, Arsenal remain very offensive. For example, Xhaka, a defensive midfielder, now runs into both of the opponent’s central defenders. A very courageous performance by the guests in round two!

    46

    22:05

    Go on! Both teams come out of the break unchanged. Can Crystal Palace continue the good phase at the end of the half?

    46

    22:03

    Kick-off 2nd half

    45

    21:53

    Mid-term conclusion:
    Arsenal lead 1-0 at Crystal Palace in Premier League opening game at half-time! And this lead is absolutely deserved, because the guests put a lot of pressure on here from the start and pushed the Eagles completely into their own half. Martinelli’s goal in the 20th minute was therefore overdue. He could have put the Gunners ahead in the fourth minute. After just under half an hour, the home side thawed a little more and defended themselves against the dominance of the north Londoners. Édouard even had the chance to make it 1-1, but was denied by Ramsdale. The final phase of the first half should have encouraged the Eagles that there is still something in it against a strong opponent.

    45

    21:47

    Official stoppage time (minutes): 1

    44

    21:45

    Xhaka granite

    Granit Xhaka (Arsenal FC) is shown a yellow card.

    Xhaka falls easily against Andersen. He gets a yellow card from the referee for that.

    41

    21:44

    There’s a huge chance of an equaliser! After a free kick from the half field, Andersen puts the ball across with his head. Edouard is completely free there, but fails from close range due to the strongly reacting Ramsdale! It was a spitting image of Arsenal’s goal, albeit without the goal.

    37

    21:38

    Now Ben White joins in! The right-back plays the ball sharply in the middle, where Palace can just clear the ball and the Eagles are also there against a possible follow-up shot from Xhaka.

    34

    21:36

    The fans at Selhurst Park are getting a bit of a wake up call from their team. Crystal Palace is getting a little braver offensively and can no longer be pushed in so far back.

    30

    21:30

    Ramsdale is causing a bit of a shock for Arsenal fans. The goalkeeper waits a little too long with his ball and shoots Édouard. From there, however, the ball lands at Saliba.

    27

    21:28

    The guests’ attacks often come from the right side, but then shift to the left. Zinchenko is the much more active of the two full-backs there and works hard at the front line.

    23

    21:26

    After the 1:0, the game initially continues in the same way as in the first 20 minutes. Arsenal are pushing, Crystal Palace are almost exclusively in their own half. It is almost surprising that the guests only have 65% ball possession.

    20

    21:22

    Gabriel Martinelli

    Tooor for Arsenal FC, 0:1 by Gabriel Martinelli

    There’s the overdue lead for the Gunners! Zinchenko intervened again at the front and served Martinelli with a head after a cross on the far post. This rises highest in the middle and goalkeeper Guaita is powerless against the Brazilian’s header.

    16

    21:19

    Crystal Palace, on the other hand, can hardly get out of their own half, especially not in a playful way. Arsenal is on the offensive with the whole team and does not let the opponent develop at all.

    13.

    21:15

    Arsenal are very dominant in the first quarter of an hour. The Gunners don’t need an adjustment period in this new season. Only one goal is missing so far.

    9.

    21:10

    Zinchenko has moved up and gets the ball in the backcourt. From there, the Ukrainian just pulls away. Guaita raises his fists in time and parries this powerful shot.

    7.

    21:08

    The Eagles are very deep in the early stages, but Arsenal are extremely enthusiastic at the beginning. The nimble Gunners put a lot of pressure on Palace.

    4.

    21:05

    Arsenal have a huge early chance to make it 1-0! Gabriel Jesus takes on the entire Palace back line and tries to put the ball on target. The ball is deflected but falls right in front of Martinelli’s feet, but his nerve fails from close range. The Brazilian shoots wide of the far post!

    1.

    21:02

    Here we go! The Premier League 2022/23 is on! The hosts in the usual red and blue, Arsenal wear the pink away kit today.

    20:50

    Arsenal FC have been a little busier on the transfer market. The Gunners found what they were looking for, especially at Man City, securing the services of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko. The two newcomers, who together cost almost 90 million euros, have been part of the game from the start. Loan returnee William Saliba has also made the leap into the starting lineup.

    20:46

    The hosts signed Cheick Doucoure from Lens and Chris Richards from Bayern in the summer to strengthen their defence. While the latter is just sitting on the bench today, Doucoure is in the starting XI. Further ahead in the Eagles squad, Wilfried Zaha should again provide danger and goals this season.

    20:33

    At Arsenal FC, too, there were mainly positive things to report in the pre-season. Apart from the 2-1 draw against Brentford, the Gunners have won all their friendlies. With a 4-0 win over Chelsea and a 6-0 win against Sevilla, they also set two clear exclamation points that should give Mikel Arteta’s men some confidence.

    20:32

    The preparations at Crystal Palace went well, which is also reflected in the results of the friendlies. Although they lost 2-0 and 3-1 to Liverpool and Man United, they managed to beat Queens Park Rangers and Montpellier 3-0 and 4-2 at the end of the pre-season. So the Eagles are starting the season with a good feeling.

    20:26

    While Crystal Palace ended last season in very calm waters with 48 points and 12th place, things were a little wilder for the Gunners. After eighth place last season and an almost historically poor start to the season with three early losses, the north Londoners have recovered. In the battle for fourth place, they lost out to rival Tottenham of all places, but Arsenal and their young team are back on the right track.

    20:15

    Good evening and welcome to the Premier League! The opening game is on the agenda in the English House of Lords this Friday. The start of the season this year is reserved for one of the many London derbies. At 9pm Arsenal FC take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park!
