Arsenal Defeat PSV On Champions League Return


Arsenal had a successful return to the Champions League with a 4-0 demolition of outmatched PSV Eindhoven in Group B as their great start to the season continued on Wednesday.

Before halftime, goals by Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard, and Gabriel Jesus gave them an easy victory—six years after their last participation among Europe’s top. Captain Martin Odegaard also scored in the second half.

After eight minutes, Saka, one of seven Arsenal players making their competition debuts, scored from close range. Twelve minutes later, Trossard’s low strike made it 2-0 before Jesus slammed Arsenal’s third goal to essentially seal the victory.

Next week, Arsenal, who has 13 points after five Premier League games, travels to Lens, while PSV must try to mend some of the damage caused by Sevilla at home.

When Arsenal last competed in the Champions League, Bayern Munich humiliated them 10-2 on the road, and ever since, they haven’t consistently finished in the top four of the Premier League.

They returned to the top table after finishing second to Manchester City last season, and Dutch team PSV proved to be the ideal opponents on a soggy night in north London.

Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, told reporters, “It was a beautiful night.” “Today we excelled in both boxes, and that made the difference.

“I was really excited before the game. Our journey started last year and we earned the right to be in this competition.”

Arsenal has struggled to win games in the Premier League this season as clubs have defended deeply to counteract their offensive advantages.

However, the top team in the Dutch league, PSV, was completely exposed, giving Arsenal pretty much free reign.

In the first minute, Noa Lang forced Spain’s David Raya into a routine save after the visitors put the English goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale to the test.

One-way traffic was then in effect.

When Odegaard’s attempt was just parried by Walter Benitez, Saka was quick enough to guide the ball home from close range as Arsenal’s first goal.

PSV gave the ball away on a surge forward, which led to a quick counterattack that ended with Saka squaring for Trossard to fizz a low effort across the soggy field and into the corner. PSV were the architects of their own demise for Arsenal’s second goal.

Trossard then took on the role of a provider by setting up Jesus, who used a deft touch to fire a shoao the goal.

On Sunday, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta had the option of making replacements throughout the second half due to a north London derby match against Tottenham Hotspur. Saka, Jesus, and Declan Rice all received an early break.

However, Arsenal was still much too slick for their opponents, and after 70 minutes, skipper Odegaard hammered home a brilliant fourth to round off a really enjoyable evening.

Even though there will be harder tests, Odegaard thinks Arsenal can go far.

“You saw the motivation and energy right from the start. To be back in this competition is huge for this club,” he said. “We are in this competition to compete and fight to go all the way.”
