Arsenal fans at the Emirates on August 26 experienced so many emotions.

Not only did they lose three points, Arsenal also showed problems in defense.

Martinelli (seated) and Nketia were sad after completing Fulham on August 26.

Yesterday, by being named in the starting lineup, Bukayo Saka made his 83rd consecutive appearance for Arsenal in the Premier League, since the match against West Brom in May 2021.

On a day that went down in Premier League history, Saka made a mistake at 55 seconds. The English midfielder passed home to the wrong address, creating conditions for Andreas Pereira to finish with one touch from outside the penalty area.

Arsenal’s defense revealed deadly gaps for Fulham to exploit.

Arsenal conceded in the first minute in three of the last nine matches at Emirates home stadium in the Premier League, against Bournemouth, Southampton and Fulham respectively.

In the 70th minute, Saka scored an atonement goal to equalize the score.

The controversial situation took place two minutes later, when Arsenal still held the ball even though a Fulham player was lying on the field in the penalty area.

It seemed like Arsenal would easily keep three points with home advantage and numbers.

The match had nine minutes of extra time, but all Arsenal could do was Vieira’s beautiful volley that was blocked by Leno in the fourth minute of extra time.
