Arsenal returned to winning ways in the Premier League with a hard-fought 4-1 win in their New Year’s Day clash with Fulham

Granit Xhaka’s opener against the run of play gave Arsenal a half-time lead

A second goal followed early in the second period through Alexandre Lacazette, but Fulham dragged themselves back into the game thanks to substitute Aboubakar Kamara’s close-range finish.

The Gunners pulled away with a couple of late strikes, though, with Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang condemning Fulham to a 13th defeat of the season and lifting Arsenal to within two points of fourth-placed Chelsea.
