Good result. We started the game off strong but we need to convert the dominance into goals so we can kill off games early. The second half further highlighted that we need midfield reinforcements because Palace overran us for the majority of the time.
Credit to Ben White too. He was being targeted that whole second half and other than a couple shaky moments, he was able to handle Zaha pretty well. It’s early doors but Saliba looks like the real deal. He was steady and measured when going to ground.
Odegaard needs to be a bit more selfish, that's the one thing I wish he'd have in his bag. But if this is Arsenal on day 1, this is gonna be a scary team. Jesus looked good even if he didn't get a clear shot at goal. But the wings and the back line were something else. Saliba is looking to be the player he's been touted to be. Of course, we'll see if he can do that against the Liverpools & Citys of the world but can't ask for much more of a start.
