Report: Arsenal 4-1 AZ Alkmaar continued their imperious home form on Wednesday night – outclassing AZ Alkmaar with a 4-1 victory to step a foot into the knock-out stages of the Champions League.

Cesc Fabregas netted a brace while Samir Nasri and Abou Diaby also got their names on the scoresheet as the Gunners eased to a win.

Arsenal’s skipper broke the deadlock on 25 minutes with a lowly struck effort before Nasri showed great composure in front of goal to double the home side’s lead by half-time.

Fabregas then curled the ball home with aplomb early in the second-half and with 18 minutes left, Diaby added a fourth goal with a similar strike.

The Gunners had more than made up for gifting the Dutch side a 1-1 draw a fortnight ago and even a late goal from Alkmaar’s Jeremain Lens merely proved a consolation.

Olympiakos’ loss against Standard Liege in Group H’s other game on Wednesday night means Arsenal are yet to mathematically progress to the knockout stage of the competition but the odds are right on their side.

  1. great game by the boys we should of scored more had alot of chances our passing and link up play was really good nasri had a great game

    gonner 4 life

  2. The Arsenal have with them one of the most exciting arsenals in attack the form of Arshavin, Rosicksy, Nasri, Rvp, Fabregas, Theo, Eduardo, Bendtner…& vela. Even the 2 center backs are capable of scoring. Simply awesome!!

  3. Come on, arsenekidz put, Diaby in there. Did you see his goal today? Diaby, when he is good..he is good! He played well today. Give the fella a break.

  4. yo man sorry long time no post go gunners go baby we got to easy matchs next and then chelsea and what a game today to randy sorry for not psting in a long time how is it going great site man

  5. It will be intersting playing away vs. Wolves followed by Sunderland. I wonder if Wenger will give someone a rest?

  6. I say, we should maintain the winning momentum with this team which played against Alkmaar till our big game against Chelsea.

  7. I don’t know if it’s mee, but Ramsey looks lazy out there at times. Don’t get me wrong the kid is good.

    I say give the kids the green light vs. the Standard game before the big battle vs Chelsea! That should be enough to rest our stars!

  8. I am with you Loft about resting our stars and giving more playing time to the kids.( vs Standard ).

  9. do any of you agree that we should sign cska moscows goalkepper AKINVEEF he is one of the best i have seen and only 23 yrs old!!
    anyone agree?

  10. diaby had a good game? didnt u see all his fast pointless run forwards he did that led to nowhere? Clearly i dont see the point making a sprint forward when one having the ball is being upheld by the defender. Except for his intelligent sprint forward that led to the good goal, but it was the third goal anyway, and a counter attack goal, a spectator goal.What he needs to learn is too pass when he needs too, instead of dribbling forward and losing the ball in the process. Maybe that’s why Wenger plays him so often

  11. JimmyG, obviously, Arsene knows more than you do! The Boss is trying to develop him to become better. He did the same thing w/ Bendtner and didn’t give up on, Eboue. Bendt, could’ve been easily sold!

    Overall, Diaby had a good game and he scored a pretty nasty goal. He needs work on his passing but that will come!

    Gunner for life!
