Arsenal changed their header on Twitter to a hilarious picture of Oleksandr Zinchenko after our 3-0 win over Bournemouth this evening.

Mikel Arteta’s men travelled to the Vitality Stadium and we were as dominant as ever. Martin Odegaard scored a fantastic brace inside 11 minutes, and the game was all but done at that point.

In the second half, William Saliba decided to make his mark, and the young French defender scored an absolute belter to seal the win.

There were a lot of moments in the game this evening that made us smile, but the one that made everybody laugh was Zinchenko’s hilarious reaction to Saliba’s goal.

The Ukrainian got a good view of the Frenchman’s left-footed strike and he just couldn’t believe it. He was on his knees in disbelief, with his hands on his head – it was almost like he saw a ghost.

Zinchenko then got up and walked back to our own half instead of joining the lads in the celebration. We’re sure we’ll have many more fun moments in the season, but it will be difficult to top that.

To commemorate Zinchenko’s reaction, Arsenal’s Twitter admin decided to change the account’s header to a picture of the Ukrainian with his hands on his head. Check it out here.

William Saliba stats vs Bournemouth

Saliba’s goal will definitely be the main talking point, but the youngster continued his fantastic form at the back as well. He dealt with the little threat Bournemouth posed with considerable ease, and his quality on the ball was just on another level.

In his 90 minutes on the pitch, Saliba had 83 touches of the ball, attempted 76 passes and completed every single one of them. He won possession back five times, made two clearances, two tackles, two interceptions and won two duels. (Squawka)

With his goal, the defender also became the youngest Frenchman to score for Arsenal since Samir Nasri back in November 2008.

Saliba really is a gem of a defender, and he will only get better in the coming years.
