Aaron Ramsey wonder goal for Arsenal, Riyad Mahrez misses penalty

Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson has dismissed the team's nine-match winning run, stating that Unai Emery's men are not good enough at the back to compete for the title.

Emery opted to start Lacazette up front alongside Danny Welbeck for the trip to Fulham on Sunday afternoon and the France worldwide scored twice either side of half-time at Craven Cottage.

"It is good", Lacazette said of his relationship with Gabon worldwide Aubameyang.

And Arsenal are two points behind, yeah?

Slavisa Jokanovic's side are the only Premier League team yet to keep a clean sheet this season - but the Whites boss is not about to park the bus in an attempt to turn things around.

However, Lacazette, who moved to Arsenal from Lyon in 2017, believes it is hard to compare the two strikers given their differing styles of play. "The best performer for us is every player".

The French striker noted that Henry came to Arsenal at a younger age than Aubameyang who is already at a top level and might not have the time and years Henry had to score more goals. He is like my brother. "It is very hard but we must prepare, continue improving and show big commitment", said Emery.

Ramsey remains a coveted player in England, but he is also attracting interest from Italy as AC Milan are interested in snapping him up next year on a free transfer. Having won six games in a row, did they?

Mahrez has now missed five of his past eight Premier League penalties - one for City and four for his previous club Leicester City - and seems highly unlikely to be given another chance after blasting the ball over the bar in the 86th minute.
