Fulham vs. Arsenal - Football Match Report

Fulham vs. Arsenal - Football Match Report

Arsenal have secured a 9h successive win as a flawless performance by the Gunners earned them a 5-1 win over hosts Fulham in the Premier League.

"It was an important goal for Aaron and an important goal for us", said manager Unai Emery with more than a touch of understatement.

Arsenal, perhaps after blowing off some Europa League cobwebs, began to enjoy more of the ball and only a flawless sliding challenge from Maxime Le Marchand prevented Lacazette tapping in Danny Welbeck's cross.

Emery relies on intense training sessions and video footage that can improve his players and find weaknesses in opponents. Holding put in another composed and assured performance as he made his fourth start in a row for the Gunners.

'To talk about the top four is early I think, ' he said.

Since new signing Lucas Torreira has come into the starting eleven, Arsenal have conceded one goal in three games. If anything, it was a reminder of just what Aaron Ramsey is capable of.

"But we played City today". It will be interesting to see whether Emery makes his next team selection based on reputation or on form.




There was nothing the Fulham skipper could do, though, as the visitors edged back into the lead from the next attack, as a fine Lacazette finish from Welbeck's flick beat him low down to his right. We worked very hard in the second half to impose this result [on the opposition].

Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's celebration - how much easier does that make things for you?

Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark, with the in-form striker turning sharply before firing past Marcus Bettinelli in the Fulham goal.

Aubameyang, too, would get in on the act as he collected a pass into the box from Bellerin before spinning and arrowing a left-footed strike past the helpless Bettinelli.

Lacazette is flying under Emery this season and scored with his first two shots on target of the match at Craven Cottage.

Defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea at the start of the season suggest Arsenal's clashes with Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United in November and December will prove better evidence of whether the revival is sustainable.
