Comments:

Group league position: 2nd With the first threesome of his senior career, Danny Welbeck scored Arsenal's third hat-trick in the Champions League after Thierry Henry (at AS Roma on 27 November 2002) and Nicklas Bendtner (against FC Porto on 9 March 2010). Wojciech Szczesny became the fifth Arsenal player to be sent-off in their last seven Champions League games.
