Arsenal cruised to victory over AZ Alkmar last night with a performance that rarely saw the Gunners having to switch into top gear.
But when they did we saw some great goals – notably Samir Nasri’s fantastic run through the visitors’ defence and lightning breakaway strikes for the second of Cesc Fabregas’s brace and a well finished move by Abou Diaby which was created by a dazzling defence splitting back heel by Eduardo.
Unfortunately we again gave away a late consolation, but with Wenger’s men noticeably easing back courtesy of a four goal cushion, it’s hard to find fault with a team which is now just a point away from certain qualification for the knock out stages of the Champions League.
It was gratifying to see that nobody had a stinker last night and Arsene Wenger’s rotation of midfielders seems to be paying dividends with everyone looking desperate to prove a point and win his place in the starting line up.
With that in mind there were a few candidates for Man Of The Match: Cesc Fabregas for his brace, Samir Nasri for a strong comeback, Kieran Gibbs for a faultless performance, William Gallas for a determined display and Thomas Vermaelen for his usual no nonsense display.
