Aaron Ramsey's wonder goal in Arsenal's rout of Fulham

Craven Cottage Fulham

Arsenal, who have not enjoyed such a lengthy winning streak in 11 years, were sent on their way by two unerring finishes from Alexandre Lacazette - either side of an Andre Schurrle equaliser.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Aaron Ramsey then came off the bench to finish off the scoring, with the former scoring twice and setting up Ramsey for his goal.

Unai Emery's team enjoyed a wonderful afternoon at Craven Cottage as they defeated the newly promoted Fulham 5-1 in their Premier League fixture.

The Gabon worldwide - who has scored four times in eight appearances in all competitions this season - missed Thursday's Europa League clash with Qarabag through illness, but has recovered in time to face Slavisa Jokanovic's side.

Aaron Ramsey's back-heel flick after a slick team move was the pick of five superb goals scored by the Gunners as they roared to a ninth consecutive win. "I want to give them and to show them we are improving with our quality, with our mentality and above all with commitment we had here today".

Iwobi will be hoping to play a leading role in Arsenal's efforts to challenge on multiple fronts this term, with the Nigeria worldwide proving to be far more consistent since Emery replaced Arsene Wenger. We can get better from this performance.

The Germany global split the two Arsenal centre-backs and his deft lob from Vietto's slide-rule pass deservedly saw Fulham draw level just before the interval. We need them to support us. "We are going to continue working".

Here are the match highlights as the Gunners moved within one point of Manchester City at the top of the table (will open in a separate tab).

Mesut Ozil came on as a second-half substitute but is out of the squad completely for the trip to Fulham with a back injury.

Keown admits he is surprised to see Danny Welbeck being handed his first Premier League start of the season and Henrikh Mkhitaryan make his first league start since August 25.
