Fabio Vieira hopes his superb goal at Brentford is the first in a long line for Arsenal.
The £34million summer signing from Porto had a slow start to his career at the Gunners after suffering an injury in pre-season.
But he made up for lost time on his first Premier League start with a fine finish from the edge of the box to wrap up a 3-0 victory in west London.
“I’m really happy, of course, to score my first goal for this club,” the Portuguese midfielder told Arsenal.com.
“We have started this season very well and we must continue this momentum.
“Everyone is playing, everyone knows what they have to do on the pitch and we have to keep doing that.”
Arsenal were back from the scene of their dismal 2-0 opening day defeat of last season, which anticipated their worst start to the campaign for 67 years.
But they are a different animal this season and have proved it with an organized and inventive display and three well-scored goals from William Saliba, Gabriel Jesus and Vieira.
The Gunners took the lead in the 18th minute, with Saliba’s header from Bukayo Saka’s corner bouncing inside the far post.
Ten minutes later, Jesus doubled the advantage with another header, this time with a nice shot into the box from Granit Xhaka, before Vieira’s knockout kick sealed a clinical victory.
Brentford had put four against Manchester United and five against Leeds at the Gtech Community Stadium in recent weeks, but they couldn’t put a glove on Arsenal with England new boy Ivan Toney an isolated presence in attack.
“It was a tough game, I just feel like we haven’t started,” defender Ben Mee said.
“But fair play for them, it’s a good team. But it’s the first time this season that we feel like that, overwhelmed and not level as we normally are.
“It happens sometimes, but now we have a break to review it and we’ll start again.”
