Impressive considering Arsène Wenger left Alexis Sánchez and Danny Welbeck freezing their respective assimus’s off in London. Although Arsenal have never lost to Turkish opposition (not including penalty shootouts) Galatasaray stood unbeaten in their previous five home matches against English teams. Tonight Arsenal didn’t manage to keep a clean sheet, conceding a goal to Wesley Sneijder’s direct free kick in the 89th minute, but Arsenal got the result they worked so hard for. Well done boys!

Tonight we saw a brace of braces from both Lukas Podolski (3rd and 93rd minute) and Aaron Ramsey (10th and 29th minute) with assists from Ramsey, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Yaya Sanogo. Now back to THAT (unassisted) goal, which was scored by Ramsey from 28.7 yards out, took 1.1 seconds from boot to goal and travelled at a speed of 53.4mph.

Here it is in glorious Technicolor:

THAT goal left both fans and Sanogo stunned:
