Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey sent a warning to Unai Emery with his celebration in the 5-1 win over Fulham, according to Martin Keown. "Then Aaron is like a 10 player, but he can play near the attack and he can score or do an assist like today".
"It was hard to start [with], but we scored many goals, we were compact and we won".
Emery has solved that problem by playing Lacazette as his central striker in recent weeks and using Aubameyang in a wider role.
With Ramsey also providing a superb through ball to set up Aubameyang's second - and Arsenal's fifth - his contribution to the win was huge, with all five of Arsenal's goals beautifully worked.
"I am just thinking about the next match at the Emirates, with our supporters".
Arsenal, perhaps after blowing off some Europa League cobwebs, began to enjoy more of the ball and only a flawless sliding challenge from Maxime Le Marchand prevented Lacazette tapping in Danny Welbeck's cross.
"Our performance over the 90 minutes was very important; to be together and with our performance we found each moment and each player", said Emery.
"Here, he is doing very well". The best performer for us is every player. I want the supporters to feel one special day each match in our stadium, to show we are improving with our quality, with our unity, our winning mentality and above all with commitment and hard work. We are moving up the table little by little, giving us a better position for our objectives.
- Both Ramsey and Aubameyang scored and assisted - this is the first time in Premier League history two substitutes have scored and assisted for a team in a single game.
It seemed unlikely after their back-to-back losses to City and Chelsea at the start of the season, but Arsenal are now only a point behind the champions and Liverpool, who meet at Anfield later on Sunday.
Aubameyang already has six goals after coming off the bench to score twice against Fulham, while Alex Iwobi has also emerged as a more influential figure on the flanks. "We analyse the games a bit more and we're proving to the fans as well as ourselves that we're able to compete for the title". In contrast, Fulham have the lowest win rate in these games (20.7% - 25/121).
