Arsenal comfortably put aside Swiss outfit Basel in the first ever meeting between the two sides as a brace from Theo Walcott gave the Gunners a 2-0 win.
Arsene Wenger’s side raced into an early lead after a first ever Champions League header from the England international gave Arsenal the early advantage, before doubling the lead to effectively finish the game.

David Ospina also made a fine save at the end to ensure another clean sheet for the Gunners after their first of the season against Chelsea on Saturday.
Here’s the best reaction from a wonderful night for Arsenal.

Walcott owes Wenger, big time. Easily the most patient manager of a major club in world football.

Very proud of that Arsenal performance – particularly from Theo, who looks like a man transformed. More please.
