The opening goals came courtesy of Gabriel, who headed in from a corner, and a Dean Henderson own goal, resulting from another powerful Gabriel header.

These first-half strikes put Mikel Arteta’s team firmly in control. The lead was extended just before the hour mark when Leandro Trossard clinically finished off a sweeping attacking play.

As if to add an exclamation point to their performance, substitute Gabriel Martinelli scored two almost identical goals in added time. Palace, sitting in 14th place, had a few chances of their own, with a notable attempt from Jefferson Lerma that was expertly saved by Arsenal’s goalkeeper, David Raya.

winger’s comfortable lead allowed Arteta to make four late substitutions, providing some key players with a well-deserved rest. The victory marked the end of Arsenal’s three-match losing streak across different competitions.

With this win, Arsenal reached 43 points, putting them level with Aston Villa and reigning champions Manchester City.
