Gabriel scores his SECOND goal as Arsenal takes control with a 2-0 lead over Crystal Palace – Live Updates

Introduction to this article

Arsenal finally broke their scoring drought at the Emirates after 49 shots across their last three home games. The goal came from Gabriel’s header from a corner, marking the 50th attempt. Despite some early frustrations and hesitancy in the final third, a brilliant forward pass from Oleksandr Zinchenko set up a corner, and Declan Rice delivered a fine cross to secure the goal. This article provides a play-by-play commentary on the London derby between Arsenal and Crystal Palace, offering insights into the game’s key moments, decisions, and player performances.

Arsenal takes a comfortable lead

Arsenal seems to be in control of the London derby, with Crystal Palace offering little in terms of attack. The game sees a free kick awarded to Palace after a dubious decision by the referee, with Havertz’s attempt to win a penalty ending in disappointment for the home team.

Missed opportunity for Gabriel

Despite Gabriel being completely unmarked in the box, his header from a corner misses the target by a significant margin. The missed opportunity shows the unpredictable nature of the game and the chances it presents for both teams.

The intense pressure from Crystal Palace

With Jesus drifting out wide and leaving the team short of a focal point in the middle, Crystal Palace is relentless in applying pressure on the Arsenal players, especially when in possession. This strategy reflects their determination to disrupt Arsenal’s rhythm and create scoring opportunities for themselves.
