The gunners have gone back to winning ways after getting a 4-1 win against Fulham at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal boss Unai Emery will be relieved that his side was able to get all the three points because he will now hope that the Premier League top four keep dropping points.

The gunners looked shaky in the first minutes of the game but they later controlled the game but kept losing the ball in the final third because Fulham were pressing them. Arsenal got their first goal of the day through Granit Xhaka who got an assist from Alex Iwobi, the fans must have been happy to see him score in the penalty box because he usually scores long-range shots.

The first half ended 1-0 in favour of the gunners but they could have even been three goals ahead if Aubameyang and Kolasinac had scored those chances they got. Unai Emery substituted Shkodran Mustafi to bring in Lucas Torreira at the start of the second half.

Arsenal looked displaced in the first minutes of the second half because Fulham had come with high tempo and were having big chances but the gunners later calmed them down after a quick good move involving about three Arsenal players saw Kolasinac get into the Fulham box and passed to Lacazette who scored a beautiful goal. Fulham tried to apply some pressure on the Arsenal players and it finally worked as they stole the ball from Lucas Torreira ( looked like a foul ) and sent in a cross which Kamara tapped in to pull one goal back for the visitors.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery panicked after some minutes because Fulham now looked dangerous and he brought in Ramsey who replaced Alexandre Lacazette. A few minutes later, the gunners got their third goal of the day after Aaron Ramsey scored a stunning goal.

The gunners then later brought in Saka who replaced Alex Iwobi. The gunners got their fourth goal of the day through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who fired in a great shot hence the match ending 4-1.
