It was the first day of the season that dreams were made of for Arsenal and a number of their players.
The Gunners romped home to a 3-0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage, continuing where they left off in the FA Cup final and the Community Shield.
New signing Willian had a debut to remember, laying on assists for all three goals. And his was not the only debut to go swimmingly – Gabriel Magalhaes capping his Premier League bow with a goal.
All in all a good day at the office for Mikel Arteta and his men.
