While the away team dominated possession when read in conjunction with stats that show Arsenal having 60.6% of territorial advantage you can appreciate just how much of that possession was in their own half. In fact the FC Twente back four made more passes between them than the other 6 outfield players combined. Cesc's return had him contributing as much work as Denilson but at 72% someway below his normal pass completion rate though more of Cesc's passes (78%) were attacking forward zone passes than Denilson (55%). Still someway below the fluency standards set last season but a better work rate all round.

Great moral boosting win. While undoubtably we should have scored more, I think this will be the springboard to launch our season. It shows the importance of Cesc to our team. While he was nowhere near full fitness, he just seems to give every teammate extra belief in themselves. My only concern / query is that of the superb Nasri being taken off at half time. Does anyone know if there is an injury?

Nasri had a stomach bug and puked at half time, to answer my own question.

Job done. In a weird way it's actually beneficial to the team that we had this qualifier, to excercise some of the ghosts of Fulham. Still though, nothing to read into.

I was glad to see that we scored 4 goals out of the 7 on target shoots, also we did that with only 36.4% of Possession. And like Bradys Chips says it was a "Great moral boosting win" hopefully now we can push on in the EPL, starting with Newcastle on Saturday. Come on The Arsenal!!!
