Arsenal team news Arsene Wenger issues injury update on Shkodran Mustafi

And there was still time for Mohamed Elneny to round off an impressive performance with a bent effort around the keeper from inside the penalty area.

Finishing comfortably top of Group H, four points clear of Red Star Belgrade, and with the likes of Napoli, Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund waiting for them in the knockout stages.

When asked whether his goal came as a relief, Wilshere told BT Sport: "Yeah a little bit". It's one of those games that if you don't give it the right amount of focus you don't enjoy it.

The Gunners, who won their group easily, will be seeded in the draw and face a tie against one of the 11 runners-up from the Europa League groups or one of the four third-placed Champions League teams with the fewest points in the group stage - which includes Dortmund and Napoli.

The duo have been regulars in Wenger's squad in the Europa League and Carabao Cup, but have struggled to break into the Premier League side on a regular basis. "You can not keep players happy, but they deal well with it and it's a problem we all have to deal with".

"It was a totally different level for the team and it was very hard for us", he said.


"If we are called upon from the bench we have to be ready and support the boys who are playing".

Walcott's 11 year spell with Arsenal could be coming to an end, with Everton targeting a January move for the 28-year-old.

Debuchy was widely expected to leave Arsenal in the summer but has worked his way back into Wenger's side and arrowed home a perfectly-placed drive to put the hosts ahead with his first goal in nearly three years. There were so many smiles out there.

BATE can draw confidence that they could get the result they need at the Emirates Stadium, though, as Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will surely rest a number of key players given they have already topped the group.

We didn't have to wait long for the second-half to get going either, although Danny Welbeck would much rather the ball had passed the goalscoring defender so he could have added his name to the long list. It's a great headache for the manager to have. "We were very professional, everyone did their jobs".
