Doubles from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang either side of a sumptuous goal Aaron Ramsey was unarguably the best performance under Emery.

Aubameyang completed the rout with a long-range drive in stoppage time.

It was Arsenal who nearly regained the lead less than three minutes into the second half but Bettinelli pulled off a great save to deny Bellerin from the edge of the box.

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil missed the win at Fulham due to a back spasm suffered in the lead up to the game, according to manager Unai Emery.

A brilliant one-touch passing move from the back took Arsenal to the other end of the field, where Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cut back for Aaron Ramsey, who had only just come on for Iwobi.

Liverpool, who remain unbeaten in their last 18 home games against City, came out roaring and dominated the opening 10 minutes but Pep Guardiola's visiting side weathered that early storm and were the more risky after the break.

Preparation for the clash with Slavisa Jokanovic's side was disrupted by Arsenal's 5,000-mile round trip to face Qarabag in the Europa League in midweek.

Fulham's back three looked exposed with every Arsenal attack and only fine work from Marcus Bettinelli stopped Alex Iwobi tapping home a second, but they snatched an equaliser a minute before half-time, Schurrle clipping a fine first-time finish over Leno after a good Luciano Vietto pass.

The Germany worldwide split the two Arsenal centre-backs and his deft lob from Vietto's slide-rule pass deservedly saw Fulham draw level just before the interval. Arsenal has now 18 points from 8 games while Chelsea still has the chance to reclaim the lost spot when they face Southampton.

Emery said, "Our performance over the 90 minutes was very important; to be together and with our performance we found each moment and each player".

Arsenal continued to cause problems and we made it 4-1 with ten minutes to go as Aubameyang controlled Bellerin's cross before firing home on the turn and the Gabon global then made it 5-1 late on after being sent clear by Ramsey.

"I believe in us, we believe in our process but also we must keep taking confidence".
