Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has praised the winning spirit showed by the team after he helped the North Londoners dispatch newly promoted club Fulham in their Premier League clash at the Craven Cottage on Sunday.

The Gabonese international spoke about Arsenal and the winning mentality in the team after he scored two goals and provided an assist as a substitute in the 5-1 thrashing of the Cottagers in their London Derby meeting.

The result ensured that the Gunners have now won their last nine matches in all competitions (six Premier League wins, two Europa League victories and one Carabao Cup win).

Aubameyang and his teammate Aaron Ramsey also made Premier League history by scoring and providing an assist as a substitute in the same game and for the same team.

It’s the first time two substitutes will score and also assist in the history of the Premier League.

In-form Alexandre Lacazette had his 29th-minute opening goal cancelled out by Andre Schurrle on the stroke of halftime as both sides played out a 1-1 draw going into the interval.

Lacazette edged Arsenal ahead again on 49 minutes before Ramsey scored the third goal in the 67th minute off an assist from Aubameyang.

The Welshman found the back of the net 39 seconds after coming on.

Aubameyang scored the first of his two goals with eleven minutes remaining before sealing the victory with his brace in added time off an assist from Ramsey.

Sarri opens up about Morata and Giroud.
