August 26th, 2005 by Ciarán Leave a reply »

Pascal Cygan trebled his goalscoring tally at Arsenal with two strikes in a 4 – 1 win by Arsenal over Fulham. Fulham went ahead in the first half with a strike by Claus Jensen after a Toure mistake, not long after Lauren had a penalty saved. However, the Gunners came back to equalise on the half hour with Cygan getting a touch on Bergkamp’s free kick to steer the ball into the net.

In the second half, Henry bagged two. The first saw Reyes lift a perfect pass over the defenders and into Henry’s path, from where he controlled the ball and slotted it home pass the keeper. Arsenal put the game beyond doubt in the last 10 minutes as Henry got another following a Fabregas pass where he lifted it over the goalie and into the net, despite a vain aattempt by a Fulham defender to get there first. Finally, Cygan got his second from close range, with Toure leaping out of the way.
