Arsenal youngsters crush Turkish giants Fenerbahce

Arsenal remain top of Champions League Group G with a magnificent 5-2 victory in Istanbul over Fenerbahce. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger said, "Because the two teams were going forward it was a very open game and Fenerbahce are an attacking side and are very dangerous going forward.

"Both teams were going forward 100% but the fact we scored an early goal forced Fenerbahce to come out and we caught them many times on the counter-attack.

"Our pace, movement and technique made the difference and allowed us to take advantage of it but it was not an easy game.

"I am very proud of the team. The average age was 23 and I am proud because we came in and tried to dictate the game in a very heated atmosphere.

"It is very pleasing that they seemed to play with no fear. I am pleased to see it works.

"We came here and had a go. We started strong, we remained quite strong and we finished strong."
