Standard Liege 2-3 Arsenal
Arsenal’s fashion of beginning their Champions League campaign with a bang was to produce a staggering three-goal comeback against Standard Liege.
The Gunners found themselves two down inside five minutes with Eliaquim Mangala’s low drive followed by a Milan Jovanovic penalty.
Nicklas Bendtner pulled one back on the stroke of half-time before a controversial Thomas Vermaelen equalizer after 79 minutes.
Just two minutes later Cesc Fabregas’s corner hit the knee cap of the Gunners striker and flew into the back of the net for the winner.
It completed a crazy night for Eduardo, who was only free to play following the decision by UEFA to overturn their suspension handed out after the qualifier against Celtic at Emirates Stadium last month, as he made a schoolboy error inside two minutes to gift the Belgians the lead.
