Isn’t this the Arsenal you should love?
A ninth consecutive win in all competition, a sixth consecutive win in the Premier League, Five goals at Craven Cottage and Arsenal are in the top gear.
London derbies are tricky but with 8 wins in a roll, Arsenal could dare to dream. The five goals scored by the Gunners were beautiful. First, Lacazette controlled Monreal’s pass to slot in for the opener. Schurle pulled Fulham back just before the break.
It was Lacazette who put Arsenal ahead again. His beautiful shot from outside the box found the back of the net beyond the reach of the goalie.
Then came the subs – Ramsey and Aubameyang. Seconds after Ramsey’s introduction, he started off a move from Arsenal’s half and rounded up a beautiful team play with a goal off his heel. Beautiful. Awesome.
The Gabonese had the last laugh though. Whenever Lacazette scores, Aubameyang scores and vice versa. A nice turn off Bellerin’s low cross, and a curler beyond the goalie made it four. Ramsey had time fot an assist as he laid Aubameyang for the fifth.
I wanted a sixth but the clock wound up. A brace for Lacazette, a brace for Aubameyang and a “heely” from Ramsey was enough to have a good Sunday. Iwobi had a couple of tricks up his sleeves. Hopefully he caps it with a goal some day. He is enjoying his game.
Oh! There was more to come. Liverpool and Manchester City played out a goalless draw. The Gunners are now 2 points behind the top. Dare to believe? Can the Gunners make it 10 in 10?
There is an international break to break the Arsenal momentum. But we can smile for the next two weeks.
WWWWWWWWW – This is Arsenal. Love it.
