Arsenal 2 – 0 Everton: Easy three points in this league are a thing of the past

Two second half goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were enough to secure the three points at the Emirates. The two strikes from the new Yorke and Cole took the all-time Arsenal vs Everton goal tally to 153, making it the highest scoring Premier League fixture of all time.

Newcastle 1-2 Arsenal: Tenacious Torreira the catalyst again

Cardiff 2 – 3 Arsenal: Lacazette and Aubameyang can be the new Yorke and Cole

When you have goal scorers you always have a chance. Neil Warnock teams are capable of giving you a hard game and that’s exactly what we got on Sunday. Although the victory was deserved, it was worrying how close we looked to Cardiff’s level. If Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were in blue, we would have been thrashed. Lucky for us the two comrades were in red and on fire to secure a much needed three points.
