Odsonne Edouard is making every Arsenal fan say the same thing after more London Derby magic


Crystal Palace and former Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard left Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium silent when he struck a superb goal to complete a North London turnaround.

The ex-Parkhead man moved to Selhurst Park on Deadline Day in August as Ange Postecoglou agreed to let the Frenchman fulfil his wish of starring down south.

And star he did on his debut against Tottenham Hotspur as he climbed off the bench to score twice.

Now he’s followed that up with his first away strike, again in a London Derby, as he scored against former team-mate Kieran Tierney and the Gunners.

The home side had led through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after just eight minutes.

But Patrick Vieira’s Palace ensured they stayed in the game and a second half Christian Benteke strike clawed them back level in the Monday night Premier League clash.

It was a sweet finish from the Belgian but nothing compared to the flowing counter-attack that found its way to Edouard’s feet.

And the 22-year-old steadied himself before crashing a shot in off the crossbar past Aaron Ramsdale — though it wouldn’t turn out to be the winner as Alexandre Lacazette scrambled home at the last second in added time to snatch a late point.

Nevertheless, Edouard was heavily linked to Arsenal in the summer and after his strike Gunners fans up and down the land were wondering why Mikel Arteta didn’t pull the trigger on a move.

@paulferrer said: “This game sums up Arsenal under Arteta holding at 1nil not trying to score more to kill the game off and then lose having fewer shots on target than the away side, and Palace signed Edouard after failing to sign Nketiah.”

@TsouvalasAFC : “I said Palace have signed well the last 2 years and look at em. Lot of young quality talent. Edouard and Olise are very good and Gallagher on loan is class.”

@ArseBurner : “Edouard really showed us what we missed in not signing him.”
