Cesc Fabregas’ stunning strike put the Gunners ahead after five minutes after some great work from Hleb on the left wing.
Hleb again was involved in the 2nd when he shoot was defected off David Hubacek’s for an own goal 2-0.Theo Walcott then got in on the show and scored his first Champions League goal, He stayed cool and slotted the ball home after a goalkeeping error.
Alexander Hleb then scored a wonderful individual goal cutting in from the left and sending the keeper the wrong way.And then the goal of the night, Hleb at the heart of a fantastic move down the left,Short sharp passes with Cesc one/twos all the way and set up Walcott who finished like Henry for his second on the night. Fabregas finished a fabulous move to score his second and Arsenals sixth before Eboue set up substitute Nicklas Bendtner bulldozed his way pass the keeper and tapped it in for a magnificent Seven.

    thought flamini deserves a 7 too. he did nothing wrong and won the ball to start a few of our goals.
