Arsenal faced Fulham at Craven Cottage earlier today in a game they had to win if they wanted to regain their five point lead at the top of the Premier League table. The pressure was on the Gunners after Manchester City won yesterday, but Mikel Arteta’s side put in as calm & as ruthless of a performance as you will ever see.
As on so many occasions this season, Arteta’s team did their duty & they didn’t waste any time, with three goals in the first half from Gabriel, Martinelli & Ødegaard, the Cottagers didn’t even have time to settle in.
If you didn’t know how good Arsenal were performing right now then the stat by OptaJoe below proves just how well Mikel Arteta has got his team playing at this moment in time…
Arsenal became the first team in English football history to win five consecutive London derbies away from home without conceding a goal.
Indeed, the Gunners have now beaten Crystal Palace, Brentford, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and now Fulham on the road this season. The aggregate score is 11-0, which will surely impress many.
