    Half-time. Fulham 0-1 Arsenal. After a nervy start, Lacazette put the Gunners ahead with a close-range finish on nine minutes and they have dominated the game since. New boys Willian and Gabriel have been impressive on debut too. Arteta will be pleased with what he's seen so far.

    9'- GOOOOAAALLLL ARSENAL! Just as I say the Gunners aren't in the game they take the lead. Aubameyang cuts a cross back for Xhaka who scuffs his shot. It falls for Willian on the edge of the six-yard box, Rodak smothers his efforts but Lacazette is there to turn home. 1-0 to The Arsenal!

    Layth and the editorial team, I hope this will be taken as positive criticism. After getting the new season underway, and in such emphatic style, I would have thought you'd have issued a match report by now. Most of us saw the game of course, but based on past experience on this site, the reports played a critical part in stimulating debate among fans. I'd much rather read someone's take on the game than hearing about betting odds or reading a minute by minute account which is about as illuminating as the ones on the official website or the dreaded BBC. Moreover, there is an important subtext to what happened yesterday which was that apparently disturbing incident involving Eddie N and our Falangist friend Ceballos. Not wishing to sound harsh, and it may well be down to a glitch but I think the Gooner's popularity might dwindle if you don't publish timely post match reports. Anyhoo, in a nutshell Arsenal lite (ffc) were thoroughly seen off by Arteta's happy band of Arsenal middleweights. Very pleasing and there's clearly more to come.
