|Marc Guéhi 85 [OG]|
Martinelli put Arsenal 1-0 up in the 20th minute. In the 85th minute, Marc Guéhi inadvertently netted a dreaded own goal, and there was nothing between the teams for the remainder.
Bukayo Saka continually probed down the flank, getting 6 crosses into the box. For Palace, Jordan Ayew seemed off the pace defensively, committing 4 fouls in a frustrating game. On a positive note for the Eagles, they had a clear advantage in the passing game, racking up 560 completed passes to the Gunners' 436.
Palace will look to bounce back next match. Meanwhile, Arsenal begin their season with a win.
