The in-form Lacazette restored the visitor's lead, four minutes into the second half, before Ramsey flicked home arsenal's third in the 67th minute, 38 seconds after coming off the bench, before a double from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made it 5-1, in favour of the gunners.

Aubameyang has scored 16 goals in his first 23 appearances for Arsenal - a better start to life at the club than record goalscorer Thierry Henry.

'We knew if we lost the first two games it wasn't the end of the world.

Indeed, key to much of the Gunners' good work over the past few months has been summer signing Lucas Torreira, who is swiftly becoming a fan favourite in north London.

Playmaker Ozil was part of the Arsenal squad that travelled to Azerbaijan in midweek and beat Qarabag 3-0 in the Europa League, with the German playing 25 minutes of that encounter.
