Sokratis the unlikely first goalscorer against Palace.
If there were murmurings before kick-off that Sokratis was selected then they have been well and truly squashed. The Greek international knocked in his first goal of the season from a Nicolas Pepe corner.
It was a bit of a messy goal and the Palace defence was all over the place. However, the 31-year-old kept his cool in the chaos and duly put the Gunners one up.
Arsenal could not have asked for a better start to the game.
Anyway, sit back and enjoy the video
