London, Oct 7 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News, app - 7th Oct, 2018 ) :Unai Emery believes Arsenal's blistering form has restored the bond between the team and their supporters after the Gunners crushed Fulham 5-1 to record the club's longest winning streak for 11 years.
Aaron Ramsey's audacious back-heeled goal put Arsenal in complete control to cap a stunning move that recalled the club's finest days under Emery's predecessor Arsene Wenger.
It was a significant statement of intent from a team widely written off ahead of Emery's first season in charge.
"Our performance over the 90 minutes was very important. We worked very hard in the second half to get this result with our momentum on the pitch," Emery said.
"I believe in us, we believe in our process but also we must keep taking confidence. I think we are in the first part of the war.
No wonder jubilant Gunners crammed into one corner of Craven Cottage celebrated the goal with chants of "We've got our Arsenal back".
That unity between fans and players was badly missing as supporters staged protests against Wenger last season.
"You need to feel together with the supporters and the players. This spirit and mentality is very important for us," Emery said.
"To show our quality and work, then together we can be happy like today. We need them to support us. The players feel that.
"We are happy but also calm because we know each match is difficult. We are going to continue working." While Arsenal are improved, they have been aided by a soft fixture list in recent weeks and even Emery demurred when asked if his team are now title contenders.
"I don't want to look back. Every match is different. We have a better position in the table for our objections, but we have to be calm." Fulham are off to their worst start to a top-flight season with one win in eight games following last season's promotion.
They waved the white flag as Arsenal ran riot, leaving Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic frustrated with their effort levels in the second half.
"We need to be more solid and more competitive if you want to be honest. We opened all the doors and they finished easily," Jokanovic said.
"We showed so many weaknesses for this Premier League level.
