Gunners Blaze Past Shakhtar

Arsenal comfortably assumed top spot in Group H after a thumping win over Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk.

Though both teams going into the game tied at the top of the group, there was a clear gulf in quality as Arsenal took the lead in comical circumstances after goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov let slip a simple catch to allow Alexandre Song to touch the ball over the line. Samir Nasri added a second prior to the break after plucking the ball out of the air and swivelling to fire past Pyatov.

The story is too old to be commented.

Wenger has something different. He makes a team out of young talents- and has the patients to sucseed with just a little money. Thats amazing!
