Former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has hailed Arsenal over their impressive start to the new EPL season after the Gunners defeated Fulham 3-0 at the Craven Cottage on Saturday.
Alexandre Lacazette made Premier League history when finding the target for Arsenal against Fulham, with the French striker having become the first man to record the first goal of an English top-flight campaign on two occasions.
Debutants Gabriel Magalhães and Willian were impressive with a goal and two assists respectively, whil stikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were also on target for the North London club.
Taking to Twitter, Oliseh said Arsenal fans should hope for an impressive season if they built on Saturday’s performance.
“Arsenal put up a highly organised, modern, mature and credibly well-rounded performance today (Saturday) versus Fulham. I believe, should they continue this way versus other opponents, Arsenal fans have the right to be extremely optimistic this season. Impressive,” Oliseh wrote.
Arsenal finished eighth last season, their worst outing in 25 years. They however won the FA Cup and started the new season with a Community Shield victory over champions Liverpool.
