Martin Odegaard at the double as Arsenal top table with victory at Bournemouth



AFC Bournemouth v Arsenal – Premier League – Vitality Stadium

Arsenal cruised to victory at Bournemouth as captain Martin Odegaard’s first brace took the visitors to the top of the Premier League.

The Gunners maintained their perfect start to the campaign, their 3-0 victory at Vitality Stadium sealed by a fine strike from William Saliba as the defender opened his account for the club.

Odegaard had put Arsenal away in the opening 11 minutes, the first time the Norway international had scored twice in a game since a brace for Stromsgodset in October 2014.

At this stage of last season, Mikel Arteta was facing calls to be sacked as Arsenal boss as they sat bottomless without a point or goal.
