Unai Emery happy with Arsenal's 'confident' game at Fulham

Unai Emery happy with Arsenal's 'confident' game at Fulham

There is a growing sense of optimism around the club following the unbeaten run and fans could be heard singing "We've got our Arsenal back" during the game at Craven Cottage on the weekend.

With Arsenal heading into the global break on the back of a positive run of results there is talk they could now finish back in the top four - if not challenge for the title - having missed out on Champions League football for the last two seasons.

Aubmeyang, also a sub, scored twice, as did Alexandre Lacazette as the win moved Arsenal into fourth above Tottenham on goals scored, two points off the three way leaders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool.

‘Journalist murdered in Saudi consulate in Istanbul’
A Saudi delegation had arrived in Istanbul to assist with the investigation, the statement said. She added that she was waiting for official confirmation as the allegations circulated.

Arsenal are on a nine-game winning streak under Emery at the moment and are just two points off the Premier League summit. The Frenchman opened the scoring midway through the first half, calmly turning and finishing from inside the box before Fulham equalised on the stroke of half time through Andre Schurrle.

So what has Unai Emery changed since taking over from Arsène Wenger in the summer?

'In January, he'll have clubs queuing up to sign him'. Earlier this season he reportedly made it clear to German playmaker Mesut Ozil that he needs to work harder if he is to keep his place.

Before the season started I thought United and Liverpool would both be close to City this time. Six of those matches were against opponents ranked in the top 15 in the world.

"The team spirit is good, of course when you win it is better".

The pair have clicked on and off the pitch, Aubameyang now having scored 16 goals in his first 23 appearances - a better start to life at Arsenal than Thierry Henry.

Arsenal go into the worldwide break sat in the top four and will face Leicester City at the Emirates when they return to league action.

Brees now sits at 499 career touchdowns, one away from the illustrious 500 mark that he'll surely surpass in weeks to come. Brees suffered a major injury to his throwing shoulder in late 2005, playing for the San Diego Chargers .

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