Arsenal made it six Premier League wins in a row on Sunday as they cruised to a 5-1 win at London rivals Fulham.

Two goals apiece from Alexandre Lacazette and substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as well as an effort from Aaron Ramsey guided Unai Emery's side to the three points.

Lacazette had opened the scoring on the half hour mark, but Fulham levelled a minute before half time as Andre Schurrle found the net.

But Lacazette put Arsenal back ahead four minutes after the restart, before Ramsey added a third.

Aubameyang had been a substitute who was only introduced in the 62nd minute but he made an impact with two goals to move the side upto fourth in the Premier League table, although they will be usurped by Chelsea, who kick off at 5.15pm at Southampton, if Maurizio Sarri's team avoid defeat.
