Arsenal run riot in second half to win 5-1 at Fulham

"Unai Emery will be a good manager for him but he needs a change".

"When I won it with Sevilla I saw that the English teams were not fighting for it, but four years ago Uefa made a rule to strengthen it, giving a Champions League place to the victor".

Another thing that seems to be getting the best out of players is the new feeling that no one's place is safe, with the Telegraph noting how Emery has asserted more authority than Wenger by not being afraid to drop big names or take them off early in games.

"We knew if we lost the first two games it wasn't the end of the world".

Arsenal are in fourth spot heading into the worldwide break, with growing hopes among fans that they can return to the Champions League next season after missing out for two years.

Firstly, the performance of Lucas Torreira.

Arsenal fans have had to sit and watch their team miss out on exciting managerial appointments like Jurgen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte in recent times, but Emery looks very much in that modern mould of being a hands-on, demanding and meticulous head coach.

Arsenal fans will be hoping his purple patch continues long into the business end of the season.

However, it was the Gunners quality that made the difference in the second half, with Lacazette and Aubameyang both scoring a brace and Aaron Ramsey finishing a fine team move which he started himself. He has scored once and set up another 3.

He said: "Arsenal have got to ask themselves some serious questions".

BBC pundit and all-time record Premier League goalscorer Alan Shearer believes Arsenal's success this season is thanks to the attacking mentality adopted by the midfield; a mentality that has allowed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette to play so well.

There is no doubt about the fact that Arsenal are a team on a high, having racked up nine straight wins in all competitions after their loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are joint top of the table and undefeated in the league but have no representatives in the best XI of the campaign so far. Yet Arsenal, after those painful last few years under Wenger, seems to be a force once more.
