Goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Henrikh Mkhitaryan put the hosts into a comfortable lead early on and despite a few nervy moments throughout the match, Arsenal were able to hold on till the final whistle to secure a seventh straight home win in the Premier League. The second half was good for us.

Ozil struck first for Arsenal, receiving Sead Kolasinac's pass and forcing a finish over Artur Boruc, before turning provider in the 27th minute in a classy one-two with Mkhitaryan, who had picked off Adam Smith's poor pass.

"If we can play with a big performance, I want every player to help us once we make these decisions". "All the players should be proud tonight and it is the same for Mesut".

'I don't know the reasons right now, we are going to have to review this game and see where the goals come from but, from our point of view, they felt very soft. Saturday is the same, but with every player can be okay.

Arsenal have made their home something of a fortress and have won their last eight at the Emirates.

But Arsenal were charitable enough to return the favour soon after as Leno played a short goal-kick into Matteo Guendouzi. The club now sits in 12th place in the Premier League. Mkhitaryan then got his second assist minutes later when he played Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang clear through on goal, and the striker calmly rounded Boruc before slotting into an empty net for his 16th league goal of the season.

Koscielny took a knock towards the end of the contest but Arsenal prepared for Saturday's north London derby in some style.
