Remember when this was supposed to be a tough group? Hey guess what, it's still a tough group, but Arsenal are a tough team. Goals from Mesut Özil and Olivier Giroud saw Arsenal ease to a 2-0 win at the Emirates over a team that was supposed to cause the Gunners fits; the first half was a masterclass in Arsene Wenger-style soccer, though, and while the second was a bit more labored, the result wasn't really ever in any doubt.
So that's six points out of six in the Champions League, seven games in a row in all competitions, and, what, 21 unbeaten out of 22 since the downward spiral was first diagnosed in March? Something like that, anyway.
Sadly, I didn't see the match, so I will have to leave the detailed analysis to others, but I will leave you with a couple questions:
1. No Santi, no Theo, no Podolski, no Oxlade-Chamberlain. And yet a pretty easy win over a legit opponent. Anybody still concerned in any serious way about Arsenal having no depth? Seriously?
2. From what I read during the match, Arteta doesn't seem to have missed a beat - is that true or am I wishcasting?
