Silence is goal-den for Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette

Unai Emery's Arsenal side produced a masterclass away at Fulham as strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang score braces in a thumping 5-1 win.

To talk about the top four is early I think.

Arsenal's previous winnings include Aaron Ramsey goal which came from a stunning team move as Arsenal made it nine wins on the spin across all competitions.

The result lifts Emery's side into third place in the table, above Tottenham on goal difference and just a point behind leaders Manchester City ahead of their meeting with Liverpool.

With Chelsea making up ground by winning 3-0 at Southampton, the league's three unbeaten teams go into the global break locked together on 20 points. We're playing without fear, we want to be consistent and keep it going. "We knew Fulham play good football and play with a lot of counters, but I think the team played well".


The pair have clicked on and off the pitch, Aubameyang now having scored 16 goals in his first 23 appearances - a better start to life at Arsenal than Thierry Henry. "We will enjoy it, we are working well and we want to continue like this".

On their relationship, Lacazette added: "It is good, he is like my brother".

'It is hard to compare with Thierry because he came was younger and Auba is at the top of his career, ' Lacazette said.

Mahrez has now missed five of his past eight Premier League penalties - one for City and four for his previous club Leicester City - and seems highly unlikely to be given another chance after blasting the ball over the bar in the 86th minute. "We analyse the games a bit more and we're proving to the fans as well as ourselves that we're able to compete for the title", he told arsenal.com.
