Arsenal started their 2022-23 top flight campaign with a 2-0 win against Crystal Palace, showing early signs of promise for this season.
The Gunners hit the ground running, with their three debutants delivering solid performances.
Here are the main points, top players, key stats and notable moments from the game.
Arsenal were on the back foot on the opening Friday night of last season as they lost 2-0 to Brentford but it was a different story under the lights across London this time.
There has been plenty to excite Gunners supporters during a pre-season in which they made shrewd signings and won all five friendlies, but this was the first major test of their hopes of returning to the top four and they passed.
They had to ride their luck at times with Aaron Ramsdale called into one excellent stop to deny Eberechi Eze early in the second half,
but Marc Guehi's late own goal gave them a deserved win which will only heighten the sense of optimism around the club.
Eze is a fine player and as he steps up his return from an ACL injury, the highly-rated 24-year-old will surely improve as he steps into the void vacated by Conor Gallagher,
Martinelli scored the first goal of the 2022-23 Premier League season off an Arsenal corner and a Zinchenko assist.
