Arsenal run riot in second half to win 5-1 at Fulham

Arsenal extended their winning run to nine games on the spin against the Premier League new boys, with Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both netting a brace either side of a cute Aaron Ramsey finish. "We are going up in the table little by little giving us a better position for our objective". It's one of the best team goals we've seen in a long, long time, and the skill moves pulled off during it - three to be exact - make it that much better.

"We have to keep the mentality".

Arsenal continued to cause problems and we made it 4-1 with ten minutes to go as Aubameyang controlled Bellerin's cross before firing home on the turn and the Gabon global then made it 5-1 late on after being sent clear by Ramsey.

The Wales worldwide looks set to leave the club at the end of the season after contract negotiations broke down but he capped some superb build-up play by steering in a wonderful flick for Arsenal's third goal just 38 seconds after coming off the bench.

The Russian outfit beat the reigning champions 1-0 despite Los Blancos having won the competition for the previous three seasons. Everton loanee Nikola Vlasic scored the only goal of the game early on after a awful back pass from Toni Kroos.

"He is very young, this is his first experience at this level but he was playing in Italy and with his national team", Emery said. He's doing very well. They have the capacity to play lots of matches. The first impressive thing is his humility every day, he wants to listen, to learn. "His career is starting and we want him to give us his best performance and his quality". The London gunners last lost a match in August 2018 against rivals Chelsea.

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has expressed confidence that the fears will not happen because the Gunners will be able to cash in on the player by January. "We were calm then and we need to be the same way in our mentality when we are winning", he said.

'Today was not only the players in the first XI, ' added Emery. The players like Aubameyang, Aaron Ramsey and Matteo continued to help us with their quality.

Every worldwide break is important also for the national team, for the players who want to join up with their team and defend their team, and for us to continue working with more calm.
