Arsenal moved into the Premier League top four for the first time this season following their convincing 5-1 victory over Fulham in their London Derby meeting at Craven Cottage on Sunday.
The 29th-minute opener from French striker Alexandre Lacazette was cancelled out by Andre Schurrle on the stroke of halftime.
Second half goals from Lacazette and the substitute duo of Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (brace) thereafter condemned Fulham to a 5-1 defeat.
