Despite Climate Change Concerns, Gunners Set Forest on Fire

By Jude Ndukwe

Arsenal FC have demolished Nottingham Forest FC in the Premiership match between the two sides at the Emirates stadium

In a match which one of the commentators described Arsenal’s sleek style of football as “champagne stuff”, the Gunners opened scoring in just 5 minutes after Gabriel Martinelli headed home a well weighted pass by in-form Nigerian born England international, Bukayo Saka who was also forced off shortly due to injury.

And it stood at 1 – 0 at the break.

On resumption, Arsenal took off from where they left off in the first half when Reiss Nelson who came in for the injured Bukayo Saka pounced on a rebound which he created to slot in the second goal just four minutes after resumption.

Nelson was also on hand in the 52nd minute to slot in from Odegard’s short pass just about two yards from goal.

From then on, Arsenal who currently sit top of the table with 31 points played with aplomb and caused all sorts of problem for the Nottignham Forest players who could not withstand the superior firepower of the Gunners.

And it didn’t take long before Thomas Partey scored what was unarguably the goal of the match as he curled a beauty that evaded the Forest defenders and left their goalkeeper, Henderson, sprawling on the floor in the 57th minute.

Not done, Arsenal kept playing like a team hungry for more goals and their hunger paid off in the 78th minute when skipper of the side, Martin Odegard, fired home the 5th goal.

While it is the first clean sheet Arsenal will be recording this season, what will make them smile more is their position in the table having regained top spot just a little over 24 hours after their title rivals, Manchester City overtook them after beating Leicester City 1 – 0 at the King Power stadium on Saturday.
