“It was really solid from start to the end,” he tells Sky Sports. “We came out and dominated, made some good chances and scored some good goals. We know it’s always difficult coming to these places. We have struggled before but we were so sharp and aggressive. It was a good performance from start to finish.”

Arsenal’s captain goes on to praise the contribution of Gabriel Jesus. “He is not just about goals,” he says. “He gives us so much in the play and he drops down to combine. He is brilliant and he is amazing to play with. We are lucky to have him here.”

Peep! Peep! Peeeeeeeeeeeep! It’s all over at the Vitality Stadium, where Arsenal have hammered Bournemouth to record their third consecutive victory and go top of the Premier League at this early stage of the season. They completely outclassed their hosts, who had few answers for them. Maritn Odegaard scored two, while William Saliba added a splendid third to put the game completely beyond Bournemouth. Arguably the man of the match, Gabriel Jesus was outstanding but looked heartbroken to have a goal chalked off for offside after a VAR consultation.

Jesus looks distraught but the curtain-twitchers in Stockley Park got their set squares and rulers out and decided he was a couple of millimetres offside as he ran on to Odegaard’s wonderful pass and chipped the ball over Mark Travers.

Arsenal score again. Gabriel Jesus converts from an exquisite Odegaard assist. But was he offside. I think this one is going to be chalked off.

Having put last season’s nightmare start of three consecutive defeats behind them by opening the current campaign with wins over Crystal Palace and Leicester, Arsenal hope to make it three wins on the spin when they travel to the Vitality Stadium to take on newly promoted Bournemouth.

Martin Odegaard speaks…

“It was really solid from start to finish,” he told Sky Sports. “We came out and dominated, made good chances and scored good goals. We know that it is always difficult to come to these places. We struggled before but we were so sharp and aggressive. It was a good performance from start to finish. »

The Arsenal captain continues to praise Gabriel Jesus’ contribution. “It’s not just about goals,” he says. “He gives us so much in the game and he drops to combine. He’s brilliant and it’s amazing to play with him. We are lucky to have him here. »

Full-time: Bournemouth 0-3 Arsenal

Peep! Peep! Piiiiiiiiiiiii! It’s over at the Vitality Stadium, where Arsenal hammered Bournemouth to record their third straight win and take the lead. premier league at this early stage of the season. They completely outclassed their hosts, who had few answers for them. Maritn Odegaard scored two, while William Saliba added a magnificent third to put the game completely past Bournemouth. Arguably the man of the match, Gabriel Jesus was exceptional but looked sorry to have a goal scored for offside after a VAR consultation.

90+4 mins: Smith-Rowe goes for a shot but Mark Travers saves at the near post. And that’s your lot – Craig Pawson blows the final whistle.

90+2 mins: Bournemouth forward and Adam Smith sends a cross into the penalty area. Kieffer Moore gets between two defenders to head a header down but Aaron Ramsdale lays down to make the save.

90 minutes: Mark Travers steps up to the rescue again, beating Eddie Nketiah with a fine save after the substitute found himself on goal and tried to drive home from 12 yards.

88 minutes: Arsenal replacement: Albert Sambi Lokonga in place of Granit Xhaka, who passes the captain’s armband to Gabriel Jesus, the third man to wear it this evening.

87 minutes: Gabriel Jesus is played behind the Bournemouth defensively, controls the ball with a superb first touch and smashes the ball towards the goal. Travers quickly gets off his line to block with a good save. The flag was up for offside.

86 mins: Bournemouth wins a free-kick from a good position just outside the Arsenal penalty area but Marcus Tavernier misses the target. He sends the ball skidding a few feet wide of the left upright.

81 mins: Kieffer Moore delivers a superb cross into the Arsenal penalty area. Unfortunately for Bournemouthhe’s nowhere near fast enough to finish it off and pass Aaron Ramsdale, as you’d expect if someone else had sent out a delivery like that.

79 mins: Kieffer Moore brings in a clever save from Aaron Ramsdale with a powerful header from the edge of the penalty area. The ball went wide but Ramsdale took no risk and deflected it for a corner. Starting from, Bournemouth win another but Eddie Nketiah clears the ball when sent into the penalty area.

78 minutes: Granit Xhaka gives the ball away cheaply just outside his own penalty area. Kieffer Moore plays the ball wide to Marcus Tavernier but he scuffs an innocuous wide shot from a tight angle.

76 mins: Arsenal triple substitution: Emile Smith-Rowe, Eddie Nketiah and Takehiro Tomiyasu replace Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli and Ben White.

Without any goal! Bournemouth 0-3 Arsenal

Jesus looks distraught, but the Stockley Park curtain twitchers pulled out their squares and rulers and decided he was offside by a few millimeters as he raced towards Odegaard’s wonderful pass and threw the ball at Mark Travers.

OBJECTIVE! Bournemouth 0-4 Arsenal (Jesus 72)

Arsenal scores again. Gabriel Jesus converts with exquisite help from Odegaard. But was he offside. I think this one will be pushed back.

69 mins: Martinelli sets up with neat footwork, turning to fly close to the far post.

68 mins: Emile Smith-Rowe and Fabio Vieira warm up on the touchline for Arsenalwhile Scott Parker stands in his technical area with his arms crossed, impassively chewing gum.

66 mins: Ramsdale is forced off his line to kick the ball in for a Bournemouth throw-in. He looked a little uncertain but had enough on the ball to eliminate any danger.

65 minutes: Bournemouth substitution: Ryan Christie replaces Philip Billing, who seems to have received a blow.

63 mins: “Can we sing a song for you?” sing the traveling Gooners, recounting the pain of silent fans at home. They follow up with a catchy rendition of “You’re down with United!”

62 mins: Martinelli gallops deep into the Bournemouth half time at high speed but wastes possession after a bad throw-in.

59 mins: Arsenal’s third goal was one hell of a punch for Bournemouth, coming just as the home side were beginning to gain a foothold in a game that is now completely beyond them. Adam Smith booked for a reckless challenge on Marintelli, while I forgot to mention a booking picked up by Gabriel Jesus in the 52nd minute.

57 mins: Correction: Saliba was right on the inside the penalty rea when he curled that shot in with laser-like precision. Fun fact: he’s not left-handed, which makes his goal even more special.

55 mins: The sleek Arsenal centre-back opens his scoring tally with a wonderfully placed shot from outside the penalty area that curls into the top corner of his left foot. It was launched by Granit Xhaka, following a fine cross from Gabriel Martinelli from the right.

OBJECTIVE! Bournemouth 0-3 Arsenal (Saliba 54)

Arsenal leads by three and it’s a wonderful goal from William Saliba.

52 mins: As Ramsdale was about to snatch the ball from his hands, Jaidon Anthony tried to block it. The ball popped towards Lerma, who shot high over the bar. Ramsdale is furious and thinks he should have gotten a free kick. I don’t remember that particular law of the game, but I have a feeling he might be right if Anthony landed his kick.

51 mins: A long throw from Lloyd Kelly is helped on its way by Chris Mepham and Aaron Ramsadale is forced to recover again.

49 mins: Bournemouth get a cross into the box from Arsenal from the left and Jefferson Lerma gets up to try and get his head on it. He doesn’t direct the ball towards goal and Aaron Ramsdale collects.

48 mins: Bournemouth attack down the left flank, but Arsenal’s impressive makeshift left-back Ben White kicks out a leg at mid-gallop.

47 mins: Centre-back Marcos Senesi and midfielder Ben Pearson suffered the indignity of being hung at half-time. They are replaced by Lewis Cook and Jaidon Anthony.

Second half: Bournemouth 0-2 Arsenal

46 mins: The game resumes with Bournemouth having made two personnel changes, with more soon.

This must be the best time Arsenal fans have had in years. That Saliba song been going on 10 minutes straight at least! And they get to go to the beach after!

Very good half from Arsenal. If you were being greedy you might have wanted one more goal from that dominance but can’t argue at 2-0.

Almost total control of the game.

Half-time: Bournemouth 0-2 Arsenal

Peep! The players come in for their half-time refreshments with Arsenal in complete control of an incredibly one-sided game. Martin Odegaard scored both goals in as complete a first half as you’re likely to see…unless you watched the game between Brentford and Manchester United last week. With only two goals between the teams, Bournemouth aren’t completely out, but they’ll need to significantly up their game if they’re going to have a chance to fight their way back in again. Even Arsenal can’t ‘Arsenal’ from here, can they?

45 mins: Arsenal fans are repeatedly working on their new song in tribute to William Saliba. It’s not bad.

44 mins: There’s a break in the game as Kieffer Moore receives treatment after sending an errant hand to the face of – I think – Gabriel. It was an accident.

43 mins: I would be interested to hear Scott Parker’s speech to his players at halftime. They try their best but just aren’t good enough to deal with this Arsenal side. There isn’t so much of a class chasm between these sides as a chasm the size of the Grand Canyon.

41 minutes: Ben White sends a cross from the right flashing in the face of the Bournemouth goal but there is no one there to deflect it into the back of the net.

39 mins: With home fans silenced, Arsenal’s traveling support are absolutely having fun as they go through their vast repertoire of chants. While there are cynics who might say the Happy Gooners are some of the most insufferable football fans out there, I wouldn’t be among them. Oh no. Not me.
