Aaron Ramsey wonder goal stuns Fulham, Chelsea beat Southampton

Aaron Ramsey wonder goal stuns Fulham, Chelsea beat Southampton

Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both struck twice for the 5-1 win.

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.

"We have to keep the mentality".

The fear had been that after the arduous trip for Thursday night's Europa League tie in Azerbaijan, Arsenal would be exhausted or at least suffer from that mysterious malaise induced by the competition.

Ramsey's current deal with Arsenal expires at the end of the season and talks between himself and the north London based club recently broke down.

Although Emery has said he would like to keep Ramsey, who is Arsenal's longest serving player after joining in 2008, Arsenal are keen to keep their wage bill under control and look willing to allow the Welshman to leave on a free transfer, just as Jack Wilshere did during the close season.

'The team spirit is good, of course when you win it is better. We need to improve quickly on this. We worked very hard in the second half to impose this result [on the opposition].


There was nothing the Fulham skipper could do, though, as the visitors edged back into the lead from the next attack, as a fine Lacazette finish from Welbeck's flick beat him low down to his right. When it's Aaron like a No.10 but he can play near the attackers to make assists and score goals.

When we scored the first goal it was the moment we could play with more confidence in the pitch.

He's very young. This is his first experience at this level but he was playing in Italy at a very high level and against big teams with his national team.

We lost the first two games against Manchester City and Chelsea, we were calm.

'I trust and believe that if we do this, one day we will win the game. The players like Aubameyang, Aaron Ramsey and Matteo continued to help us with their quality.

'I must be anxious when we play bad and lose, I trust we play well and have more options to win the game'. There have been a few concerns over the last few weeks about the defense in particular, and how, although we were winning games, the amount of chances we were giving to the opposition was a worry.
