  • Henrikh Mkhitaryan Starts – Arsenal Team vs Fulham Confirmed

Unai Emergy's side were leading 2-1 when the Spanish coach turned to the Gabon worldwide and teammate Aaron Ramsey off the bench midway through the second half, with two goals from Alexandre Lacazette coming either side of Andre Schurrle's strike.

Aubameyang completed the rout with a long-range drive in stoppage time.

In the 29th minute, Alexandre Lacazette gave a 1-0 lead to the visitors after a composed finished at the near post.

The Gunners have not enjoyed such a lengthy winning streak in 11 years but, despite being slow out of the traps, Alexandre Lacazette's brace set them on course for a 5-1 Premier League win to move them above neighbours Tottenham and into third place.

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

"We played very well, but we knew that Fulham play good football and would try to hit us on the counter-attack", the Gabon worldwide told BT Sport.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang registered the assist, as he centred for Ramsey, with the Wales International allowing the ball to come through his legs before flicking it into the bottom corner in style.

[I was pleased] not only with the first XI but with the substitutes.

Yet, even if Ramsey does leave, Emery is clearly not short of midfield options, with Alex Iwobi impressing before being replaced by the Welshman and Germany's Mesut Ozil to come back in after missing Sunday's game with injury.

"For me it was very important for him to take confidence and take that first goal", said Emery.

"We [have] won a lot of matches with the players, where they are not starting in the match but they are playing 20, 25 or 30 minutes and helping us".

"When we are winning now I think we need to be in the same way in our 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 worldwide then made it 5-1 late on after being sent clear by Ramsey.
