- Arsenal have a 51.5% win rate in Premier League London derbies (124/241) - the best in the division.

Unai Emery has discussed Mesut Ozil's back injury which meant the midfielder missed Arsenal's 5-1 victory over Fulham.

Aaron Ramsey extended Arsenal's lead in the 67th minute with a delightful finish.

Fulham are the only side in the Premier League yet to keep a clean sheet this season and it was easy to see why as Arsenal carved holes in the hosts' creaky five-man defence.

After the worldwide break, Arsenal resume their Premier League campaign at come against Leicester City on October 22, before a Champions League clash away at Sporting Lisbon and a London derby with Crystal Palace.

"Be calm, enjoy working, stay together, have one feeling with our supporters, but improving individually and collectively and finding our best performance in each match with combinations from the players". Alexandre Lacazette started the rout with a superbly taken brace while his striking partner Emerick Pierre Aubameyang completed his own brace with an assist to his name to round things up. 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.

Meanwhile, Lucas Torreira said that Emery's insistence that players prioritise the team ahead of the individual is starting to pay off. He was also much more confident with the ball at his feet compared to the veteran keeper and his early save to deny Luciano Vietto proved vital at the end.

"Here, he is doing very well". He played today in the middle then right in the 4-4-2 and his performance was the same. We are moving up the table little by little, giving us a better position for our objectives.

"When we lost the first two matches against Manchester City and Chelsea, we were calm, and when we are winning now, I think we need to be in the same way in our mentality", Emery said.

"I think we played very well", he told BT Sport.

Every worldwide break is important also for the national team, for the players who want to join up with their team and defend their team, and for us to continue working with more calm.
