|Arshavin's trademark celebratory smirk|
Wojech Szczesny looked solid in goal and the Professor will be happy to have last season's goalkeeper issues at bay for the moment. The goal was certainly a boost for Arshavin who has been quiet as of late. Arsenal's new signings proved their mettle, with Mikel Arteta looking particularly sharp in the midfield. It will still take some time for the many new signings to gel with the established squad and program at Arsenal but the win was certainly a step in the right direction. Arsenal fans will agree, Saturday's match was the true start of Arsenal's EPL campaign and look to leave August's embarrassing results in the past.
