Arsenal maintain their spot at the top after yet another game week with an incredible 4-0 victory over Nottingham Forest. It only took the Gunners 5 minutes to get ahead through a Gabriel Martinelli goal.
However, Bukayo Saka had to come off in the 27th minute after sustaining an injury. Reiss Nelson replaced Saka and bagged a brace in the second half before Thomas Partey joined the party with a sensational finish in the 57th minutes to make it 4-0.
Odegaard completed the scoring in the 78th minute with a sublime effort.
