As I predicted.

If Wenger uses all three of his substitutes we'll see at least two debutants.

Yeah a couple of years ago he and Nelson were like the two big prospects you'd hear about from our youth team. Heard more about Nelson than McGuane since but he is still a talented player. Would be a blow to lose him like with Chris Willock.

Holding at LCB, where he should be.

Mustafi dinks a lovely ball to Walcott, who heads it into the path of the onrushing Elneny, but Walcott is flagged offside.

Get in! Wilshere plays a one-two with Giroud, drives forward and crosses for Walcott, who's initial header is saved, but he prods home the rebound.

Yeah Wilshere has started well.

Looks like Walcott's header would've crossed the line even without his touch.

BATE's goalkeeper really tosses it up. His clearance goes straight to Walcott on the edge of the area, who takes two touches and finishes well.

Great football. Nelson finds Wilshere, who slips a great ball through to Maitland-Niles. Maitland-Niles takes a bad touch but tries to find Giroud, but its cleared for a corner.

Rob Holding makes it 3-0 from the resulting corner.

Almost a hat trick for Walcott. Wilshere's attempted pass to Giroud deflects into Walcott's path, and his effort is saved very well.

Holding hits the post from the resulting corner.

Half time and we're 3-1 up.

Honestly this could be about 7-2. We've looked good going forward but have also looked characteristically feeble defensively.

Wilshere has been excellent, Willock has been very good, Walcott has been his usual frustrating self (scored twice, offside a lot). Would like to see us using Giroud more.

Having Elneny and Willock behind him has given him freedom to roam the pitch more. Its been like watching Ozil with added dynamism.

Massively over hit free kick from Walcott but a penalty is given for a foul on Mustafi. Didn't look like a penalty to me.

Giroud steps up and scores his 100th Arsenal goal. Get in, buzzing for him!

Great run inside by Nelson. He plays it to Giroud but he slices it well wide first time.

Marcus McGuane coming on to make his professional debut.

McGuane on for Nelson.

Nelson looked good on the ball and going forward but thought he struggled defensively. Understandable as he isn't a wing back/ full back.

Maitland-Niles finds McGuane with a great pass off the outside of his boots. McGuane slips Walcott through but Walcott drills one miles wide. Poor, had lots of time.
