ARSENAL HAVE GAINED a reputation for playing beautiful football under Arsene Wenger, and the side showcased the best of their skill against Sunderland at the Emirates today.

Tomas Rosicky scored a goal that involved numerous intricate passes, in a style not too dissimilar from Jack Wilshere’s equally classy goal against Norwich earlier in the season.

The strike put Arsene Wenger’s men 3-0 up, and they eventually won 4-1.

Arsenal had been dealt a dispiriting 2-0 defeat by Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday and they reacted in style by outclassing third-bottom Sunderland at the Emirates Stadium.

Left on the bench against Bayern, Olivier Giroud was restored to the starting line-up to face Sunderland and the Frenchman responded with a brace of goals in the first 31 minutes.

The former Montpellier man also played a role in the glorious move that led to Rosicky chipping in Arsenal’s third goal before half-time, with Laurent Koscielny heading home a fourth in the 57th minute.

Emanuele Giaccherini claimed a late consolation for Gus Poyet’s side, who face City in next weekend’s League Cup final.
