Arsenal Defeats Chelsea
More recently, on 24 September 2016, Arsenal defeated Chelsea 3-0, ending their poor run against their opponent. All three goals were scored in the first half of the game, and Alexis Sanchez scored the first goal, with Theo Walcott following with another goal just three minutes later. Arsenal then scored a third goal with the help of Mesut Ozil. This means that Arsenal has earned their very first win over Chelsea after 10 Premier League matches, and this is a game that helped them make their way to third place in the league.
A Victory Against Hull City
On 17 September 2016, Arsenal had a great 4-1 victory over Hull City. In this particular match, Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, and Granit Xhaka were credited with getting all of the goals necessary to drive their team ahead of the competition. On the Hull City side of the competition, Robert Snodgrass was the only member of the team to be able to score against Arsenal, and Jake Livermore received a red card as well.
A Win Over Southampton
When Arsenal went up against Southampton on 10 September 2016, the match ended 2-1, with Arsenal victorious. Petr Cech scored the only goal for Southampton, whilst Laurent Koscielny and Santi Cazorla scored goals for Arsenal. It was looking like a tight game for a while, though, and fans thought that this match might very well end in a draw until Santi Cazorla was able to get a stoppage time penalty kick that put Arsenal over the top and allowed the team to win.
Other Recent Results
In other Premier League matches, Arsenal has been shining brightly. On 27 August 2016, they defeated Watford 3-1, and they had a 0-0 draw on 20 August 2016 against Leicester. However, they did lose against Liverpool in a match on 14 August 2016 that ended with a score of 3-4.
Overall, fans are excited to see what else Arsenal has in store, especially after all of these wins early in the Premier League season. It will be interesting to see what the remainder of the season holds.
