Ethan Nwaneri of Arsenal, who is 15 years old and 181 days old, became the youngest player in the history of the Premier League when his team, the Gunners, overcame Brentford to regain first place in the league.
In the dying seconds of the match, with his team already up 3-0, Mikel Arteta substituted for the schoolboy midfielder.
When Nwaneri came on the field, the traveling supporters of Arsenal welcomed him by singing, “School in the morning, he’s got school in the morning.”
William Saliba, a France defender, went to great heights to head Bukayo Saka’s corner into the goal off the post, which sent Arsenal on their road to a sixth win in seven games played in the premier league this season.
Granit Xhaka’s precise chip was headed by Gabriel Jesus for his fourth goal in Arsenal colors just inside the first half an hour, putting the Gunners up 2-0. Jesus was a £45 million signing from Manchester City in July, and he came to Arsenal from the Premier League club in July.
Arsenal’s strong performance was completed off by a goal scored by Portuguese midfielder Fabio Vieira from 25 yards out. Vieira’s goal was his first Premier League start since joining Arsenal from Porto.
Brentford were unbeaten in their previous three games and could have climbed to fifth in the table with a win, but they rarely threatened as forward Ivan Toney, who has been called up by England for the first time, struggled for service. Nwaneri, 15, becomes the youngest Premier League player. Brentford were unbeaten in their previous three games.
Arsenal began the weekend as the leader of the standings but fell to third place on Saturday as a result of victories for both Manchester City and Tottenham.
However, thanks to this victory, the Gunners now have 18 points, which is one more than their closest competitors have before their next encounter, which will be a north London derby against Spurs at Emirates Stadium on October 1. (12:30 BST).
Elegant Gunners demonstrate that they mean business.
Arsenal were humiliated in the matchup against Brentford that took place during the previous season, and the Gunners lost timidly to the newly promoted team by a score of 2-0 on the first day of the 2021-22 season.
After that match, Brentford striker Toney tweeted, “great kick about with the boys,” which was interpreted as a small dig at the Gunners. Arsenal defender Gabriel was quick to respond to this after the Gunners’ victory on Sunday.
Since then, a lot of things have changed, and the Gunners squad that we have now is a totally different one full of grit, desire, and character.
Following their first loss of the season in their most recent Premier League match, which took place at Manchester United, all eyes were on how they would rebound against a Brentford team who had humiliated Manchester United five weeks earlier.
They were in complete control from the beginning to the end, even though they were missing their crucial captain Martin Odegaard due to injury.
Saka, who also set up Vieira for one of his assists, finished with two assists as the Gunners cruised to their third clean-sheet road victory of the season. Gabriel Martinelli once again turned in a performance that stood out, Saliba was solid at the back, and Saka finished with two assists.
Ben White, who was omitted from the most recent England squad, played an important part as well, and the margin of victory could have been even greater if not for two outstanding saves by Raya at the 3-0 mark that kept Jesus and Saka from scoring.
Since the 2016–17 season, Arsenal have not participated in the Champions League.
Although there is still a significant distance to travel, it appears that Arteta will have a successful season as Arsenal looks to build on their impressive start and give their fans hope that they can compete in the most prestigious club championship in European football.
Second place goes to Brentford.
After dominating victories over Manchester United and Leeds, there has been little indication that Brentford is suffering from “second-season malaise.”
Despite the fact that they were clearly outplayed by Arsenal, they still find themselves in the top half of the table heading into the international break.
Over the course of the past 18 months, the club has had many reasons to rejoice, not the least of which is Toney’s selection as the first player from the Bees to be called up to the senior side for England since 1939.
After a free kick, Toney came the closest to scoring for the home team, but Brentford’s performance was subpar overall, as they were held scoreless in the Premier League for the first time since May 2nd.
Although Brentford has made tremendous strides in a relatively short amount of time, this is a day they would rather forget.
