Alexandre Lacazette will lead the line for Arsenal, with Danny Welbeck and Henrikh Mkhitaryan providing support from out wide. The Gunners faced a decent Fulham side in a Premier League clash.

"Be calm, enjoy working, stay together, have one feeling with our supporters, but improving individually and collectively and finding our best performance in each match with combinations from the players".

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

Barkley, who signed for Chelsea in January from Everton, tapped in the second from Olivier Giroud's acrobatic cross before Hazard played in substitute Alvaro Morata to seal the win in stoppage time.

The Gunners are growing in confidence under Emery and are undoubtedly on track for a top-four challenge, while Lacazette's form comes as a major plus.

It was an open game from the start but it was Arsenal who broke the deadlock as Alexandre Lacazette did well to control a Nacho Monreal cut back before firing home for 0-1 in the 29th minute.

The breakdown of Aaron Ramsey's contract talks is another thorny issue that Emery has so far navigated successfully, as the Wales midfielder showed his class with a committed display and superb goal at Fulham. The Gabon striker wasn't finished yet and, in the last minute, he smashed in Ramsey's pass for his sixth goal of the season.

Arsenal were a different side after the interval and Bettinelli - called up by England this week - produced the save of the game to keep out a fierce strike from Bellerin, moments before Lacazette added his second - an early strike from long range which seemed to catch the Fulham keeper by surprise as it nestled in the bottom corner.

- Both Ramsey and Aubameyang scored and assisted - this is the first time in Premier League history two substitutes have scored and assisted for a team in a single game.

After the worldwide 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.

"We [have] won a lot of matches with the players, where they are not starting in the match but they are playing 20, 25 or 30 minutes and helping us".
