Holding: Arsenal players recognise Lacazette, Aubameyang chemistry

Premier League Arsenal Ride Their Luck As Alexandre Lacazette Gem Sinks Everton

Former Everton midfielder Don Hutchison has also suggested on Twitter that the Toffees need a striker.

Petr Cech feels Arsenal have forgotten what it takes to win the Premier League title.

Brentford (4-3-3): Daniels; Odubajo, Konsa, Jeanvier, Barbet; Yennaris, Mokotjo, Sawyers; Canos, O Watkins, A Judge.

Everton had created most of the early chances as they looked for their first victory at Arsenal since January 1996, but they were unable to find their way past goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Arsenal closed the game out without conceding - for the first clean sheet under Emery - despite centre back Sokratis hobbling off with a knee injury in the first half.

After defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea in their first two games under Emery, Arsenal have bounced back with a much-improved run of results.

"We were preparing in preseason with the young players and every player to give them a chance to show us their confidence and performance", Emery said. "He grew up in the academy with us and in pre-season". Under Emery, the training has been more intense and varied, and Cech feels that the squad is developing a greater focus.

In the end, one goal was enough to win the game against Everton, and when you score a superb goal like Alexandre Lacazette's one for Arsenal, you are entitled to celebrate.

Brentford manager Dean Smith says his side "will not fear" Arsenal when they travel to London to take on the two-time champions on Wednesday.

He might face a tough task to leapfrog in-form striking duo Lacazette or Aubameyang in the pecking order, but there appears to be little doubt Welbeck will get plenty of game time at Emirates Stadium if he keeps up his current form.

Both goals came in the span of three minutes late in the second half.

While Lacazette's stunning effort was a moment of individual brilliance, Aubameyang's strike was the culmination of a flowing counter-attacking move also involving Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey. "We will certainly give them a lot of respect but we won't fear them".

"For any club who wins titles in the recent years, you have a team with the know-how to finish it off and you can see it in any sport", said Cech.
