Henrikh Mkhitaryan Starts - Arsenal Team vs Fulham Confirmed

Slavisa Jokanovic has admitted that Fulham can not compete in the Premier League if their dismal defending continues. "We knew Fulham play good football and play with a lot of counters, but I think the team played well".

Lacazette opened the scoring for the visitors in the 29th minute finishing crisply via Nacho Monreal's assist.

And he hailed the contributions of goalscorers Ramsey and Aubameyang, who helped Arsenal put the game to bed in the final 23 minutes.

Aubameyang completed the rout with a long-range drive in stoppage time. This marked the first time that two substitutes have scored and assisted in the same game in the Premier League.

"Arsenal showed their quality and pace, but we surrendered in the last 10 minutes".

Picking a man of the match has been hard, with a number of excellent performances across the pitch for Arsenal at Craven Cottage.

Aside from his goalscoring, the forward's all-round play was a real highlight for the Gunners, who are reaping the rewards of the striker's increasing confidence.

It was a significant statement of intent from a team widely written off ahead of Emery's first season in charge.

There are fears that Arsenal might lose star player Aaron Ramsey for free, without cashing in on him after they were unable to tie him down with a deal.

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil missed the win at Fulham due to a back spasm suffered in the lead up to the game, according to manager Unai Emery. We will continue with this victory'. They have the capacity to play lots of matches.

After the global break, Arsenal resume their Premier League campaign at come against Leicester City on October 22, before a Champions League clash away at Sporting Lisbon and a London derby with Crystal Palace.

Another sub, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who had assisted the Ramsey effort, then got on the scoresheet himself, this time swivelling on a pass from Hector Bellerin before slotting home. They will play Leicester City after the worldwide break and will then make a trip to Portugal to play Sporting CP in the Europa League.
