Despite the majority of the possession in the first-half, the Gunners failed to really test Maarten Stekelenburg, with Bacary Sagna’s effort in the penalty area – before Santi Cazorla’s free-kick hit the Fulham wall – being the best of Arsenal’s few opportunities on goal.
But the second-half we saw a different Gunners side come out from the break, not in terms of dominating possession, but because they created and fired more efforts on goal than they did in the first 45, and looked like actually breaking the deadlock.
Just when we thought it was going to be one of those days at the Emirates, our dominance and possession finally paid off, with Cazorla, who hasn’t been at his best recently, bagging a superb brace, thus securing all three points against a side we often defeat on home soil
Top of the table but a long way to go yet.
