Arsenal controlled the game from start to finish and ended up comfortable 4-1 winners over AZ Alkmaar at the Emirates.

Arsenal controlled the game from start to finish and ended up comfortable 4-1 winners over AZ Alkmaar at the Emirates.

Cesc Fabregas scored a brace as the Gunner all but secured their qualification from the Champions League group stages.

The hosts were two goals clear by the break with strikes from Fabregas and Samir Nasri.

The Dutch outfit has no answer to the pace and control of Arsenal and Fabregas made it three early in the second half before Abou Diaby completed the scoring.

Jeremain Lens fired a late consolation, but Arsenal rarely looked troubled.

The victory puts Arsenal on 10 points, a tally which will only see them fail to progress into the next stage of the competition if they lose their final two games coupled with an unlikely combination of results for Olympiakos and Standard Liege.
