Arsenal continued their unbeaten run with a professional performance at Craven Cottage, ripping Fulham to pieces in the second half to record a 5-1 victory.

Two goals for Alexandre Lacazette, two for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang off the bench and a magical team goal finished off by Aaron Ramsey marked an excellent afternoon for Unai Emery’s side, who move up to third in the Premier League.

The victory comes as Arsenal’s ninth in a row in all competitions, and sees them performing above expectations as Emery’s impact begins to show signs of bearing fruit.

For Fulham, who drew level just before half-time through Andre Schurrle, they have alarming problems to fix as they have the worst defensive record in the Premier League, having now conceded 21 goals in just eight games, and they sit one place above the relegation zone in 17th.
