Arsenal news: Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang reflect on Fulham braces


ARSENAL duo Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang insist it was not easy to each put two past Fulham.

The Gunners strikers are hitting their stride now this season, having played a part in all five goals this afternoon between them.

Unai Emery’s team prevailed 5-1 at Craven Cottage, with Fulham now having the leakiest defence in the top flight.

Arsenal have won nine successive games in all competitions and confidence is high in their ranks, especially going forward.

Aubameyang was left on the bench to begin with today having suffered with illness during the week.

But his introduction in the second half showed no signs of rustiness as he equalled team-mate Lacazette’s tally for the game.

Reflecting on the Fulham triumph, Lacazette said: “We won with a big score but it’s hard for Fulham because they played well.

“Even losing the first two games [at the start of the season]we have shown that it is not the end of the world.”

On who scored the best Arsenal goal, he added: “The fans can choose who scored the best goal, the best thing is that we scored.”

“Now we have to keep this mentality”

Aubameyang told BT Sport: “We played very well, but we knew that Fulham play good football and would try to hit us on the counter attack.

”The team played well and when I came on I knew I needed to make a difference and I did it.

“Now we have to keep this mentality. We will try to keep focus and continue to win games.”

Arsenal move up to third in the table at least temporarily, taking them into the international break on a high.
