Arsenal Pulled off 4-0 Victory over FC Twente to Confirm Champions League Group Stage

Arsenal showed some magnificent football against FC Twente at home last night. Gunners outclassed the opponents 4-0 to clinch a 6-0 overall score to ensure their group stage in Champions League. After the Fulham loss Arsenal needed a morale-booster performance against FC Twente and they did exactly what could have needed to make a strong come back. Moreover, Arsenal’s celebration has been extended as the midfielder Cesc Fabregas has returned in action from hamstring injury.

French midfielder Samir Nasri put Arsenal ahead in the 27th minute when his firing left-foot shot past goal keeper Nicolay Mihaylov into the Twente goal. Following the goal Arsenal got more confident and created a number of scoring chances before half time. The visiting side could not pose any threat for the Gunners and I would say it was a total dominance by the home team.

Though Samir Nasri played well throughout the first half, he was substituted by Emmanuel Eboue at the half time because the French international was suffering from stomach problem. Just seven minutes into the second half, Arsenal doubled their lead thanks to a goal from William Gallas. Arsenal Captain just needed to tap the ball into the net. Theo Walcott played really well and scored the third goal for Arsenal. The winger took a curled shot at goal in the 66th minutes that confirmed a big margin victory for the home team.

Denmark international Nicklas Bendtner was preferred to Emmanuel Adebayor in the starting line up, and Bendtner impressed with his performance as well, scoring the fourth goal for his team. With his injury time goal, Arsenal confirmed a total domination all through the match.

Actually, Bendtner looked like a competent target man in the match, even though he managed to get the ball only a number of occasions. However, the arrival of Fabregas was instrumental behind Arsenal’s spirited performance. For many Arsenal fans, it was a pleasing experience to see Fabregas and Nasri playing together for the first time.
