However, Arsenal were made to pay for their sloppy passing at the other end in the 44th minute, after Monreal gave the ball away needlessly in a unsafe area.

Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli made sure Arsenal did not double their lead not long after as he kept out Henrikh Mkhitaryan's close-range effort before preventing the lively Alex Iwobi from pouncing.

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.

"We are happy because I think this shows the commitment we have in training and the quality and the understanding of our tactical position". We need to improve quickly on this. We're not afraid to play anyone. Alexandre Lacazette started the rout with a superbly taken brace while his striking partner Emerick Pierre Aubameyang completed his own brace with an assist to his name to round things up.

The win was Arsenal's sixth in a row in the Premier League after opening losses to Manchester City and Chelsea. "This spirit and mentality is very important for us", Emery said.


"Now it's a togetherness, a unity for the fans, the players and the new manager and it's going nicely". However, they were undone by one of the goals of the season.

To make matters worse for Fulham, as the clock headed into stoppage time, Ramsey played Aubameyang in behind the defence and the former Borussia Dortmund star took the ball into the box before drilling it across the keeper and into the bottom corner to put the cherry on top of the cake.

It was a significant statement of intent from a team widely written off ahead of Emery's first season in charge. The players like Aubameyang, Aaron Ramsey and Matteo continued to help us with their quality.

'We're showing so many weaknesses for the level we are at at the moment, defensively.

- The Gunners have won four of their last five away Premier League matches (L1), as many as they had won in their previous 19 on the road.
