Arshavin: Arsenal were not that good

Andrey Arshavin has urged Arsenal not to get carried away with their thumping of Braga. Arshavin scored one of Arsenal's goals in their victory, before being substituted after an hour of the match.

He refused to get carried away however, saying: "I wouldn't say we played a fantastic match. We've shown what we can do and that we know how to play football.

"Generally, at home we always play a good match. The main thing is that we won and lead the standings.

"We were able to score early and after this the game opened up and we were on a roll. But the return game will be much more difficult. They have some quality players and in some moves you could see they have high skill.

"This time it didn't happen for Braga, that happens to everyone. But it's only the first game."
