- Gunners eased to victory at Craven Cottage
- Remain top of the Premier League table
- Happy camp in north London
WHAT HAPPENED? The Gunners cemented their standing at the top of the Premier League table with a comfortable victory over London rivals at Craven Cottage, with Leandro Trossard providing three first-half assists for Gabriel Magalhaes, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard. The Arsenal camp was a happy place at full-time, with Zinchenko joining in with the travelling support as they paid homage to their manager and another three-point haul.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Zinchenko, who was a boyhood Gunners supporter and joined them from Manchester City in the summer of 2022, told Arsenal Media afterwards of a positive afternoon for the north London outfit: “I think our first-half performance was quite good - we controlled almost everything on and off the ball. It’s a very important three points, a clean sheet. A perfect day for Gooners. Let’s keep going.”
