Arsenal failed to turn their possession into opportunities to score goals in the opening period of the game.
The crucial moment, though, occurred early in the second half when Gabriel Martinelli’s deft play resulted in a quick free-kick that Eddie Nketiah was able to receive in the area.
Sam Johnstone of Crystal Palace fouled Nketiah, resulting in a penalty. After a VAR review, Martin Odegaard comfortably scored the penalty.
While Crystal Palace tried to counterattack with quick bursts of speed, Arsenal continued to press hard the whole game.
Despite Jordan Ayew’s threat to Arsenal’s defense, the Gunners gradually took control of the game in their half. Prior to the break, Nketiah came the closest to scoring, hitting the post, and then wasting a chance following a deft ball from Declan Rice.
William Saliba’s spectacular sliding tackle stopped Ayew’s counterattack in the middle of Arsenal’s offensive efforts.
It took Arsenal just nine minutes into the second half to make a breakthrough. Because of Martinelli’s fast thinking and Thomas Partey’s deft holding back of Jeffrey Schlupp, Nketiah was able to race in on goal and draw the penalty.
Partey’s motion was legitimate according to VAR, and Odegaard successfully scored on the penalty shot.
Takehiro Tomiyasu’s second yellow card for stopping Ayew’s counterattack dealt a severe blow to Arsenal. Mikel Arteta made intelligent substitutions against constant pressure from Palace, and goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale faced few real challenges.
