‘Arteta ball’ was in full flow as Arsenal produced a stunning display to record a vital win against Fulham.
On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal turned on the style as they completely dominated Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Goals from Gabriel Magalhaes, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard sealed a convincing 3-0 win as Arteta’s men stretched their lead over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League to five points.
Arsenal have produced some brilliant football this season but they were at their scintillating best for the second goal, with Martinelli finishing off a stunning team goal.
In total, the move consisted of 24 passes as Fulham players were dragged left, right and centre.
At the end of the move, Leandro Trossard showed great skill to move away from Kenny Tete before crossing for Martinelli to head home.
Gunners fans were purring over that goal on social media.
One fan said: “This is serious levels, levels which I have never seen with any Arsenal team in my little Arsenal watching life.”
Another tweeted: “Used to watch with envy as teams like Liverpool and Man City displayed stuff like this week in week out. I knew this was in the cards with us aswell, but never thought it would come this fast.”
A third fan added: “After watching the cl this year i don’t think it’s a stretch to say we’re top 2 in the world.”
Someone else wrote: “Mesmerising goal.”
Whilst a fifth added: “That ladies and gentlemen is Arteta ball at its very best, stunning goal.”

After the match, Arsenal boss Arteta picked out Trossard, who got a hattrick of assists for special praise.
The Spaniard said: “He could have scored two – I think he was really impressive. Not only that, he had an jury only a few days ago and that injury could have taken a week or 10 days. He was really willing to come back early, the physios and doctors did really well to do that. That changes things in the team, and we needed him today, his contribution was superb.
“It's football intelligence, he’s really clever to understand straightaway what you want, what is required, what is his role and he’s executing it really well.”
Can Arsenal go all the way and seal Premier League glory? Only time will tell.
