Video: Brazil international climbs high to give Arsenal early goal vs Crystal Palace

Arsenal have taken an early lead at the Emirates Stadium in their Premier League clash with Crystal Palace courtesy of a goal from Gabriel.

The Gunners are in a poor run of form and would have wanted an early goal to settle the nerves.

That came after just 11 minutes when Gabriel came up for a corner and headed home a Declan Rice cross. The goal is the defender’s second in the league this season and it leaves Palace with an uphill task to get all three points on Saturday afternoon.

Gabriel’s brilliantly guided header steers Arsenal in front at Anfield

Arsenal take the lead in the opening few minutes as Gabriel guides a header past Alisson after latching onto an excellent Martin Odegaard freekick.

After a poor showing from Liverpool against Man United last weekend, conceding early doors is the worst start they could’ve asked for. Fans will now be more restless as they attempt to go for the jugular in a bid to jump into first place before Christmas.
