As Aaron Ramsey celebrated in front of an away end full of joy and optimism, the Arsenal supporters broke into euphoric song. ‘We’ve got our Arsenal back,’ came the cry. After this result, a ninth win on the spin, it was hard to begrudge these fans their moment.

Seven weeks is a long time in English football. Back in August, Unai Emery was presented with a gruesome statistic: after two opening defeats, he had made the worst start to life as an Arsenal manager since Thomas Mitchell in 1897.

Now the historical comparisons are different. Arsenal had won nine or more in a row under only three managers — Herbert Chapman, George Graham and Arsene Wenger — and that trio have all won top-division titles.

The tickertape and the statues are a long way off for Emery but which Arsenal supporter would not be a little bit giddy after this demolition? After all, if the Gunners can do this after only a few months under Emery, how good might they become once he has been afforded more recruits and time on the training field?

‘I don’t think this was our “best”,’ Emery said. ‘We can get better. I want our fans to feel every match is a special day and show we are improving with our quality, our winning mentality, our commitment.’

Emery’s team were a delight here, responding emphatically to Fulham’s equaliser on the stroke of half-time by scoring four goals in the second half without reply.

Glorious goals, too. Both Alexandre Lacazette and Ramsey scored with efforts that belonged in the happiest days of the Wenger era and the league table makes for happy reading too, with Arsenal back in the top four and within touching distance of a title challenge.

So for Emery, the portents are good. They are good not only because his team attack with abandon but also because they have rediscovered a resilience that appeared alien to recent Arsenal teams.
