Arsenal were imperious in the win over Braga last night from the moment the referee first blew the whistle. They totally dominated the Portugese Champions and the only surprise was that it took them until the 9th minute to take the lead!
Fabregas gave a real captains performance, and got a double, as did Carlos Vela when he came on later, with Arshavin and Chamakh getting the other two. Arsene Wenger was understandably proud of the way Fabregas led the team.
“He has taken on another dimension. People forget that he is 23 years old, an age where other people start. He is a fantastic influence and it is important that he leads this team to winning and I believe it is a fantastic opportunity for the young players who play alongside him to improve as well. If you are 18 years old like Wilshere and you see Fabregas who is 23, it is a big opportunity to learn a lot.”
Arsenal are looking like the team to challenge Chelsea this season….
