Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh is breaking records in Europe.

He has become the first player to net in SIX successive games in the Champions League - although three were with former club Bordeaux last season.

Chamakh, 26, who scored the fifth goal in Arsenal's 5-1 thrashing of Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday, has also been on target against Braga and Partizan Belgrade this term. He said: "I'm just hearing about the record.

"I'm happy about it and hope it carries on.

"We're off to a good start in the competition. The win is good for the squad because we can concentrate on Manchester City now."
