Arsenal fans spotted Alexandre Lacazette's positive reaction after being subbed v Fulham

Arsenal responded to their 5-1 humiliation at Liverpool in the best possible way against Fulham.

Unai Emery needed three points and he got them courtesy of a convincing 4-1 win over Claudio Ranieri's struggling Fulham side.

The visitors had their chances, but Arsenal's attack was simply too good, with the introduction of Aaron Ramsey late in the second-half proving pivotal.

The Welsh midfielder - who is set to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season - scored the third of the game to finally put Fulham to bed after Aboubakar Kamara pulled a goal back.

Ramsey came on for Alexandre Lacazette, with the Frenchman ending his search for a Premier League goal on 55 minutes.

Emery's decision was met with a chorus of boos at the Emirates, with Lacazette arguably Arsenal's best player.

Lacazette showed his frustration when he was recently substituted at Brighton, but fans spotted his response to the hostile reception that came with his departure this time around.

Instead of complaining, Lacazette urged the fans to get behind the team and clapped.


It's the small things that can make a big difference on a football pitch.

Journalist James Benge also spotted Lacazette telling his teammates to concentrate after being taken off.

The game was finely poised at 2-1 and Lacazette's decision to not add to the tension in the Emirates was certainly a wise one.

The Frenchman's display versus Fulham will add further scepticism towards Emery's decision not to play the former Lyon man on a regular basis.

With Arsenal's defence so sub-par, it seems their best way of actually winning games is to simply outscore teams and there are few better strikers in the Premier League than Lacazette.

Alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - who now has 14 goals in the league alone - Arsenal possess arguably the finest strike partnership in England.

Why not use it on a regular basis and make up for the leaky defence?
