I don't think in these terms.
Aaron Ramsey scored a goal of the season contender as Arsenal thrashed Fulham to record a ninth straight win for the first time since April 2015.
But because Ramsey now looks set to leave Arsenal in January, there was greater significance about Emery's decision to leave him out against Fulham.
The Wales worldwide looks set to leave the club at the end of the season after contract negotiations broke down but he capped some superb build-up play by steering in a wonderful flick for Arsenal's third goal just 38 seconds after coming off the bench.
The Gunners faced a decent Fulham side in a Premier League clash. The best performer for us is every player.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (9/10): After facing a spell on the sidelines, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returned with a bang, scoring a second-half brace to fire Arsenal to third in the league table. We analyse the games a bit more and we're proving to the fans as well as ourselves that we're able to compete for the title.
He's very young. This is his first experience at this level but he was playing in Italy at a very high level and against big teams with his national team.
"Here, he is doing very well". I want the supporters to feel one special day each match in our stadium, to show we are improving with our quality, with our unity, our winning mentality and above all with commitment and hard work. He played today in the middle then right in the 4-4-2 and his performance was the same.
Bernd Leno (7.5/10): A comprehensive display in between the sticks from Bernd Leno, who continues to impress while deputizing for the injured Petr Cech.
"We lost the first two matches against Manchester City and Chelsea".
Arsenal, perhaps after blowing off some Europa League cobwebs, began to enjoy more of the ball and only a flawless sliding challenge from Maxime Le Marchand prevented Lacazette tapping in Danny Welbeck's cross. I think we are in the first competition in the war.
