At Gtech Community Stadium, Mikel Arteta young English Premier league side beats Brentford United to make sure they take their top spot once more.
Brentford United 0-3 Arsenal FT
This past week has seen the English football league halted, as UK long serving Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II left the world on 8 September 2022, after living a well fulfilled and accomplished life. She died at the age of 96, while ruling as the head of United Kingdom for 70 years. Rest In Peace Our Beloved Queen.
But the sad days and bad mood didn’t stop Arsenal from returning to their winning duties once more. First half goals from William Saliba and Gabriel Jesus made sure Arsenal were already ahead at 28 minute of play. Arsenal were the better side in all aspect, registering 13 shots against Brentford 5. They were vibrant, gaining possessions and making sure, Brentford front men don’t see a chance to get a taste of goal celebration.
Both Saliba and Jesus, scored from a header, thanks to beautiful well timed crosses from Bakayo Saka and Granit Xhaka. As Referee David Coote blew for the final whistle, Arsenal headed into the tunnel with smiling faces, having won 3 goals to nothing here today. Fabio Viera had made it 3 at 49 minute, his debut goal for Arsenal. The former Porto man couldn’t stop smiling, what a way to thank your manager for trusting his instincts to allow you start your first full Premier game.
The Brazilian Dance Controversy
“Keep on dancing, #BailaViniJR”.
After scoring today against Brentford United, Arsenal very own Gabriel Jesus payed a sweet happy dance celebration tribute to his Selecao team mate, Vinicius Junior. How funny that will be seen in the football world this coming week, especially in Brazil. The Brazilian fluid leg movement while smiling might be the message that rightly says “You can’t stop the Brazilians’ from dancing”. He made his phone call trademark celebration, which when sarcastically interpreted will say “Hello Vini, Don’t forget to dance when you score”.
In a week where we have seen many controversies and arguments online when Athletico Madrid player, Koke sent a stern warning to his Madrid Neighbor, Vinicius Junior ahead of the Madrid Derby; That he should be ready to see “trouble” if he dances after scoring. Gabriel Jesus has done the dancing job before Vini will even think of doing. Many Brazilians had also taken to their social media pages to encourage Vinicius to dance as much as he likes if he scores against Athletico Madrid. So get ready Koke, unless Vini doesn’t score, definitely Wanda Metropolitano stadium will witness the Selecao dance today.
Another History In English Football
This season, Arsenal has been creating history so far and they did create another one again today, as the 15 years and 181 days old Arsenal Ethan Nwanerie becomes the first ever young player to play in the English top flight. He might have come on as a late hour substitute, but the young debutant had made history. Watch out Epl, he might go on to make more shocking histories.
Arsenal next match will see them host Tottenham on 1 October, for a drilling London derby. Antonio Conte men have not lost a Premier league game since the start of this season and will look set to continue that run of form.
But watch out Brazilian haters, PSG Neymar Jr will surely celebrate the Selecao dance too. It’s in their DNA; Brazilian footballers.
