Captain
Martin
Odegaard
struck
twice
inside
the
opening
11
minutes
to
put
the
Gunners
in
control
on
Saturday,
with
Bournemouth
failing
to
register
a
single
touch
in
the
Arsenal
box
in
the
first
half.

William
Saliba
netted
his
first
goal
for
the
club
to
extend
that
lead
in
the
second
half,
while
the
influential
Gabriel
Jesus
saw
a
strike
ruled
out
for
off-side.

The
win
gives
Arsenal
the
enviable
record
of
being
the
only
Premier
League
side
so
far
to
win
their
opening
three
matches
of
the
season,
although
Manchester
City
can
join
them
on
nine
points
with
victory
at
Newcastle
United
on
Sunday.

Arsenal
came
flying
out
of
the
blocks
with
former
City
man
Jesus
skipping
through
the
Bournemouth
defence
and
teeing
up
Gabriel
Martinelli,
who
was
denied
by
Mark
Travers,
only
for
Odegaard
to
tap
in
the
rebound.

Odegaard
struck
again
six
minutes
later,
smashing
in
with
his
left
foot
to
cap
off
another
fine
move
that
saw
Jesus
touch
Ben
White’s
cutback
into
the
Arsenal
captain’s
path.

The
Gunners
extended
their
advantage
swiftly
after
the
restart,
with
Martinelli’s
deep
cross
knocked
square
by
Granit
Xhaka
to
Saliba
for
a
curling
first-time
finish
into
the
top-right
corner
from
just
inside
the
box.

Jesus
thought
he
had
got
into
the
act
but
was
denied
by
the
VAR,
shown
to
be
narrowly
offside
following
Odegaard’s
pass,
and
only
his
goal
was
missing
as
Arsenal
remained
on
the
front
foot
right
through
to
the
final
whistle.

Earlier
Harry
Kane
set
a
Premier
League
record
for
the
most
goals
with
a
single
club
as
the
Tottenham
striker
sealed
a
1-0
win
against
Wolves.

Kane’s
185th
top-flight
goal
for
Tottenham
Hotspur
took
him
above
Argentina
striker
Sergio
Aguero’s
total
of
184
during
his
time
at
Manchester
City.

It
was
also
Kane’s
250th
goal
in
all
competitions
for
Tottenham,
moving
him
16
goals
behind
Jimmy
Greaves
as
he
bids
to
become
the
north
London
club’s
all-time
leading
scorer.

The
29-year-old’s
landmark
moment
came
in
the
second
half
at
the
Tottenham
Hotspur
Stadium
as
he
headed
home
from
close-range.

Kane
had
scored
his
first
goal
of
the
season
in
last
weekend’s
2-2
draw
at
Chelsea
when
his
stoppage-time
header
drew
him
level
with
Aguero.
