Fulham 0 -3 Arsenal: Willian stars in English Premier League season opener
FA Cup winners Arsenal opened the 2020/21 Premier League season with an emphatic 3-0 victory over newly-promoted Fulham on Saturday afternoon.
Signing from Chelsea provides two assists in the Gunners opening victory at Craven Cottage.
Fulham drew the first blood when Aboubakar Kamara forced Leno to produce a smart save.
Arsenal proved more clinical though as Alexandre Lacazette reacted to a loose ball in the area to stab into the bottom corner on eight minutes following a goal-mouth scramble.
Alexander Lacazette fired the opener when he tapped the ball into the net after Rodak deflected Willian’s shot to him.
The opener from Lacazette made him be the first star to score an opening goal of a Premier League season more than once.
Willian went inches close to a goal on debut 28 minutes after hitting the frame of the post from a pin-point free-kick outside the edge of the area danger.
Willian curled a superb ball setting up debutant Gabriel from a corner.
Willian was at it again when he supplied Aubameyang a long pass which was superbly curled into the net.
Newly promoted Fulham manager Scott Parker introduced fresh faces from the bench hoping for positive results. Arsenal controlled the entire second half mark with Lacazette posing more threats for a brace.
