Premier League: Martin Odegaard scores a delightful free-kick as Arsenal continues the momentum, defeat Burnley 1-0- After barely winning their first match of the season against Norwich, Arsenal continued its journey to a poor start in the 2021/22 campaign. However, a delightful free-kick by Arsenal’s new signing saw Arsenal go in front in the 30th minute. That marked the only goal of the match and Arteta continued the winning momentum from the Norwich game. Arsenal wins its 2nd game and now sits at the 12th spot in the table.
All. Three. Points!

Martin Odegaard’s 30th-minute free-kick earned Arsenal their second win of the Premier League season with a 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.
The Norwegian midfielder curled the ball beautifully into the top corner of Nick Pope’s goal, helping take Mikel Arteta’s side onto six points.
The Gunners had to survive some pressure from Burnley after the break and had a scare when referee Anthony Taylor awarded a penalty after Burnley sub-Matej Vydra went down under a challenge from Arsenal keeper Aaron Ramsdale.
But when VAR intervened, Taylor went to the pitchside monitor and overturned his decision after seeing footage showing Ramsdale playing the ball.
Burnley remains winless in 19th place with just one point from their opening five matches.
