A sixth consecutive Premier League victory for Arsenal sees Unai Emery's men move up to third in the table, a point behind Manchester City and Liverpool, who meet at Anfield later on Sunday.

Lacazette was at the centre of Arsenal's powerful show at Craven Cottage, with his superb second-half strike restoring their lead after Andre Schurrle had cancelled out his opener.

"He did not start in the first 11 today but when he was on he scored within a minute and that gives confidence for both him and us".

Aaron Ramsey, Alexander Lacazette and Emerick Aubameyang scored for Arsenal while Ander Schurrle got the only goal for Fulham. This marked the first time that two substitutes have scored and assisted in the same game in the Premier League.

Arsenal have now won six straight matches in the EPL and nine in all completions.

But the north Londoners are quickly rediscovering their verve and struggling Fulham had no answer to their enterprising display.

Are the rigours of the Europa League a worry?

Emery insisted this week that Aaron Ramsey wouldn't be distracted by reports that his negotiations with Arsenal have broken down. However, it is hard to overlook the wins they mustered through that stretch which also points at improvement.

Alex Iwobi was the catalyst with a clever pass to Nacho Monreal. However, they were undone by one of the goals of the season.

They waved the white flag as Arsenal ran riot, leaving Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic frustrated with their effort levels in the second half.

Fulham hit back before half-time but the Gunners eased away from their opponents after the break.

But moments later, the German made no mistake as he lobbed the ball over Bernd Leno, having been put through by Luciano Vietto's delicate through ball.

Under Wenger, Arsenal were often guilty of over-elaboration as their attacks would peter out due to an apparent desire to score the ideal goal every time.

Danny Welbeck headed onto Lacazette and he took Bettinelli by surprise with a powerful 20-yard drive that flashed past the newly called-up England keeper.

The revitalised Lacazette is a far more dominant and demonstrative figure in his second season, with his brace at Fulham taking his goal tally to five this term. From Ramsey's first little lift and Hector Bellerin's heel flick to Ramsey's delicious finish, that goal had it all. He only lasted 54 minutes.
