Unai Emery and his Arsenal side enjoyed another happy away day on Sunday afternoon as they ran out a 5-1 win at Craven Cottage against Fulham.
Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette was given the nod to lead the front-line from the start and scored twice to set the Gunners on their way to a third straight away win in the Premier League.
But two Arsenal stars Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were introduced to the action just after the hour mark and made a instant impact.
The Welshman started and finished off a flowing passing move after just 38 seconds on the pitch with Aubameyang providing the assist, and then returned the favour with a through pass for the Gabon international to score his second and Arsenal’s fifth of the game.
Remarkably, it was the first time in Premier League history that two substitutes have both scored and assisted a goal in a single game.
