Bould’s boys won their fourth successive league game with an emphatic victory over Fulham to move them 19 points clear at the top of the table.

Luke Freeman got the hosts on their way after only nine minutes before Oguzhan Ozyakup doubled the advantage from the spot just before the half-hour.

Danny Boateng offered the visitors a glimmer of hope in the 36th minute when he put into his own net but Benik Afobe restored the Gunners’ two-goal lead within 60 seconds.

Ozyakup grabbed his second of the match four minutes after the interval before substitute Nigel Neita iced the cake midway through the second half.
