5 Things We Learned From Arsenal’s 2-0 Win Over Fulham

Arsenal beat Fulham 2-0 at the Emirates this afternoon – here are five things we learned from the tie.

1) Cazorla is a magician

The little Spaniard was the match winner in the end as he struck the two goals that earned the Gunners the three points, and it was nothing less than he deserved.

His determined display saw the little playmaker terrorise Fulham – He completed 80/86 of his passes and won all four of his take ons, as well as having five shots at goal.

2) Wilshere is better centrally

The little midfielder attempted 105 passes in the game, completing 95 and generally ran the game from the middle of the park. We have seen him played in the wide position at times this season but has been largely ineffective from those positions.

3) Fulham are in deep trouble

The Cottagers now sit a point above the drop zone having now lost three of their last five. They look as though they are in deep trouble.

4) Arsenal pass masters

Throughout the game the north London side completed 615 of their 676 passes, which is a completion rate of 91%.

5) Meulensteen has Cottagers popping it

Fulham’s passing statistics were also impressive – they were successful in with 405 of their 473 passes.
