Emery seeks more improvement

Arsenal manager Unai Emery said he was delighted with his team's ninth successive victory, but wants to see them keep improving.

He was speaking after the Gunners won 5-1 away at Fulham to go into the international break in the top four in the Premier League.

It is very difficult but we must prepare, continue improving and show big commitment.

Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring after half an hour only for the home side to equalise through Andre Schurrle to make the scores level at the break.

However, Lacazette scored his second for the visitors early in the second half and they added gloss to an impressive victory with further goals. First Aaron Ramsey, on as a substitute, finished off an excellent team move.

Another to come off the bench, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored two late on, to leave Arsenal within sight of the top of the Premier League.

It left Emery and his players in good spirits as they go into the international break and the Gunners boss told the BBC afterwards: "Our performance over the 90 minutes was very important; to be together and with our performance we found each moment and each player.

"I believe in us, we believe in our process but also we must keep taking confidence. I think we are in the first competition in the war. It is very difficult but we must prepare, continue improving and show big commitment."

Arsenal now have two weeks off before their next game, at home to Leicester on 22nd October.

The Gunners are 3/5 to make it 10 wins in a row while the Foxes are 5/1 with the draw 16/5. Arsenal are 9/1 to win the game 1-0.

While Arsenal are looking towards the top of the league table, Fulham, by contrast, are closer to the bottom.

The result at Craven Cottage means they go into the break just outside the bottom three having only won once so far in their first season back in the top flight.

Arsenal are 11/2 to win the Europa League this season.
