LONDON - Samir Nasri gave Arsenal's young guns a winning start to the Premier League campaign as the France midfielder's debut goal clinched a 1-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion.

Nasri, 21, struck early in the first half at the Emirates Stadium to calm fears that the departures of Mathieu Flamini, Alexander Hleb and Gilberto Silva would cast Arsenal adrift of their title rivals.

Results: Arsenal 1, West Bromwich 0; Bolton 3, Stoke 1; Everton 2, Blackburn 3; Hull 2, Fulham 1; Middlesbrough 2, Tottenham 1; Sunderland 0, Liverpool 1; West Ham 2, Wigan 1. - Sapa-AFP
