Arsenal put on a performance worthy of potential champions of England as they cruised to a 3-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday.
Pressure? What pressure? If Arsenal are being made to feel uncomfortable by the presence of Manchester City behind them in the Premier League, then they are certainly not showing it.
Mikel Arteta’s side would have seen City close the gap at the top to just two points with their win at Crystal Palace on Saturday night, but they responded as if they didn’t have a care in the world as they brushed Fulham aside 3-0 at Craven Cottage on Sunday.
The league leaders were superb in the first half, scoring through Gabriel Magalhaes, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard to kill the game as a contest before the interval.
And they cruised through the second half to make it five successive wins in the league, a run that has seen them score 15 goals in the process.
It was a near-perfect afternoon for the visitors, who were even able to welcome star striker Gabriel Jesus back from injury in the second half.
Jesus could have given the day the perfect ending soon after coming on, but he saw his effort saved by Bernd Leno after he was played through by Fabio Vieira.
