Gunners fire 7 past Slavia

It was an exhibition of football as Arsenal brushed past their latest Champions league opponents after putting seven past Slavia Prague tonight at the Emirates Stadium, with goals from Fabregas (2), Walcott (2), Hleb, Bendtner and an own goal from Hubacek.

The Gunner's inspiration so far this year, Cesc Fabregas put the home side ahead with a stunning strike after only 5 minutes, before Slavia defender Hubacek turned the ball into his own net to double their lead. It was 3-0 before the break when England U 21 striker Theo Walcott capitalized after Prague keeper, Vaniak, misplaced his clearance, Walcott easily rounded the keeper before slotting the ball coolly past the retreating defenders.

Alexander Hleb, who was my man of the match, had his best performance yet in the Arsenal colours and got in on the goals as well, with a deft finish after Fabregas' beautiful assist. Walcott got his second on 55 minutes before setting up Fabregas to add number 6 with a well-worked, team goal.

The icing was on the cake and now for the cherry, Niclas Bendtner put the Premier League leaders 7-0 up after a cute, back heeled one-two with Emmanuel Eboue, leaving the Dane to walk the ball over the line.

Twelve wins on the trot for Arsenal, who will be the ones to stop this rampage..........
