Arsenal made it five Premier League wins in a row with a convincing 3-0 win against Fulham, with Leandro Trossard notching up a record-breaking three assists in the opening half.

Here are the full player ratings as Arsenal once again reclaimed their five-point cushion on Manchester City in the Premier League title race.

Aaron Ramsdale – 6

Was alert to deny Bobby Reid from getting Fulham back in the game with a fantastic save and was able to waste some time with his amusing antics from the goal.

Ben White – 7

A return to form for White this afternoon as the England international commanded the right-back position with incredible professionalism. Kept Fulham’s left-side quite for most of the match and almost managed an assist for Martinelli.

Why Pele Is Overrated.

William Saliba – 7

Bullied Aleksandar Mitrovic and kept the Fulham talisman quiet all game. Saliba was the best player on the pitch for Arsenal midweek against Sporting Lisbon, and the defender was again outstanding in west London.

Gabriel Magalhaes continued his incredible goalscoring record against Fulham with a fine header 20 minutes in to give Arsenal the lead. Many believe the Brazilian has been the best defender in the league this season, and this performance once again backed up this claim.

Oleksandr Zinchenko – 6

One of Zinchenko’s more quieter games having started midweek against Sporting. Despite this, the Ukrainian international was impressive when having the ball at his feet.

Martin Odegaard – 8

Once again pulled the strings in midfield and was rewarded with a fantastic goal just before half-time. Booked in the second-half for a silly challenge but few Arsenal fans will complain with Odegaard’s performance today.

Thomas Partey – 7

Arsenal’s metronome was once again in great form as Partey returned to the starting XI having been rested for the trip to Lisbon on Thursday night.

Granit Xhaka – 8

Almost got on the end of a Goal of the Season contender but was unable to get his foot on the ball. Aside from that, Xhaka was once again imperious and well-complimented with his midfield partners Odegaard and Partey.

Bukayo Saka – 6

Unusually quiet given how dominant Arsenal were against Fulham. Saka started against Sporting on Thursday, and the winger is beginning to show signs of fatigue having been relied on so much by Mikel Arteta.

Leandro Trossard – 10

Arteta made a bold call selecting Trossard in the starting XI but the decision proved to be a smart one. A trio of assists in the first half highlighted one of the best Arsenal performances of the season.

Gabriel Martinelli – 8

Was unlucky to not open the scoring via an Antonee Robinson own goal but was quickly rewarded with a strike that counted with a fine header just before the half-hour mark.


Kieran Tierney – 6

A much-needed appearance for Tierney, who replaced Zinchenko to keep Arsenal’s clean sheet in place.

Reiss Nelson – 5

No heroics needed for Nelson this time as the 23-year-old provided good attacking cover for Saka in the final 20 minutes.

Fabio Vieira – 6

Vieira was one of the stars of the show on Thursday night, yet the Portuguese youngster failed to do much with the limited time the midfielder had on the pitch.

Gabriel Jesus – 6

Returned to Arsenal action for the first time this season and received arguably the biggest cheer of the night despite doing little in his 15-minute cameo.

Takehiro Tomiyasu – 6

Came on with ten minutes to go and held the fort down with Tierney out on the left.
