Unai Emery reveals Lucas Torreira confidence after Fulham win

Unai Emery reveals Lucas Torreira confidence after Fulham win

There are fears that Arsenal might lose star player Aaron Ramsey for free, without cashing in on him after they were unable to tie him down with a deal.

However, Arsenal were made to pay for their sloppy passing at the other end in the 44th minute, after Monreal gave the ball away needlessly in a risky area.

"No, because I think our players have the habits to play a lot of matches in the week and we want it", Emery explained.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Aaron Ramsey then came off the bench to finish off the scoring, with the former scoring twice and setting up Ramsey for his goal.

"You need to feel together with the supporters and the players". We can get better from this performance.

"But I am just thinking about the next match against Leicester at the Emirates, in our home, with our supporters".

Wales global Ramsey looks set to leave the club at the end of the season after contract negotiations broke down but he finished off a sweeping Gunners attack, full of flicks and tricks, just 38 seconds after coming off the bench.

It was a significant statement of intent from a team widely written off ahead of Emery's first season in charge.

Arsenal were a different side after the interval and Bettinelli - called up by England this week - produced the save of the game to keep out a fierce strike from Bellerin, moments before Lacazette added his second - an early strike from long range which seemed to catch the Fulham keeper by surprise as it nestled in the bottom corner.

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic felt hard done by, especially after his side had gone in level at half-time after Schurrle lifted the ball over new Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno. However, they were undone by one of the goals of the season.

Aaron Ramsey, who came off the bench in the 60th minute, piled more misery on the opponents with a ideal backheel. We opened all the doors. Today is the first day we more clearly played 4-4-2, with Danny [Welbeck] and Lacazette first and then Auba and Lacazette.

'I believe my team tried. We finished the game with 21 shots, and the other team nine.

"Arsenal showed their quality and pace, but we surrendered in the last 10 minutes".
